Larken Associates has inked a new 1,300-square-foot lease that has brought a men’s barbershop to a retail center in the Somerset County borough of Raritan.
The Warren-based operator, Royal Barbershop LLC, is expanding to the three-building Raritan Crossing property at East Somerset Street and Route 206. Its new location is less than a mile from the heavily traveled Somerville Circle, Larken said, noting that the 62,955-square-foot complex serves the Bridgewater, Somerville and Raritan markets.
Shane Wierks of Jeffery Realty represented both parties in the deal.
“Raritan Crossing’s ability to fit the needs of a wide array of tenants provides true convenience to the thousands of cars that pass by daily,” said Victor Kelly, executive vice president of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “Through negotiating leases with a variety of tenants like Royal Barbershop, we are happy to create a one-stop-shop experience with a variety of easily accessible retail, restaurant and health care options.”
Royal Barbershop is a full-service men’s barbershop offering services including classic haircuts, shaves, facials and wax treatments, according to a news release. Its new location in Raritan sees an average of 35,000 vehicles pass by daily and provides easy access to routes 202 and 22 and interstates 78 and 287.
