A discount retailer is nearly doubling its footprint at a Burlington County shopping center, in the largest of several newly announced deals by Jeffery Realty.
The retail brokerage represented ownership at 4355 Route 130 in Beverly, where Big Lots is expanding to 55,000 square feet from 28,000 square feet. Shane Wierks, the Jeffery broker who completed the deal, said the expanded store is slated to open in mid-2020.
The shopping center is also slated to undergo a total façade renovation, he said.
Wierks also recently completed a lease in Phillipsburg, where Ross Dress for Less has taken 21,000 square feet at the Greenwich Center complex. The store, which is backfilling a former Staples location, is expected to open by year’s end.
In Brick, Wierks brokered a 4,000-square-foot lease at Town Halls Shoppes with PM Pediatrics. The space is under construction.
