A well-known furniture brand is set to open later this month at a new shopping center in Union, the first of two national tenants that will anchor the 110,000-square-foot project on Route 22.
Brokers with CBRE Group say the new Bob’s Discount Furniture store will open Aug. 31 inside a 31,400-square-foot space at the Greenleaf at Union Shopping Center. It will be the first tenant at the property, which sits at Route 22 and West Chestnut Street.
Bob’s will serve as co-anchor alongside a 37,000-square-foot LA Fitness that is scheduled to open this fall, according to CBRE. The furniture seller leased the center’s entire second floor.
The CBRE team of Michael Horne, Steven Winters and Nicole Jadoo serves as the exclusive brokerage team for Greenleaf at Union, according to a news release. BKR Lamar Retail Services represented Bob’s Discount Furniture in the transaction.
“As two of America’s premier retail operators, Bob’s Discount Furniture and LA Fitness serve as ideal anchor tenants for Greenleaf at Union,” Horne said. “These tenant openings mark an exciting milestone for the larger development, and we look forward to continuing to see this project achieve great success.”
Greenleaf at Union is contiguous to Costco, CBRE said. Other neighboring retailers include Walmart, Target, ShopRite, Best Buy and a soon-to-be-developed, fully-approved Lidl Supermarket.
