After we confirmed that a Bealls Outlet store will be coming to the River South Commons Shopping Center, as well as the previously confirmed Big Lots, the NPJ paid a little visit to the bustling area. The Big Lots store already has a pop of the iconic orange inside their 37,000 sq ft space. Some furniture has arrived and several big AC units need to be installed on the roof of the building before Big Lots can continue moving in.
Bealls Outlet will inhabit 25,000 sq ft of the old Stage space. This leaves 16,000 sq ft that was wallowed off from the old Stage space still open for a tenant, although the NPJ has heard rumors that something is already in the works. We’ll keep you posted when things become official.
The shopping center is also getting a facelift, with a fresh coat of paint on the facade and a fresh coat of asphalt in the parking lot. With all the new tenants, and current businesses, every retail space will soon be full. This is sure to bring the crowds back to this shopping center, which has had empty spaces for too long now.
