While most of Cottonwood was closed during the lock-down, our building projects kept moving forward. This week we began construction on our new freestanding retail pad located between Burger King & Earls. We have been getting some questions about which retailers will be in that building, and unfortunately all we can say right now is that we will make announcements on that project in the future. We expect completion of this building to coincide with the larger Save on Foods/Old Navy/Club 16/Cora project for early 2021. But you know…construction….anything can happen!
We also wanted to show you a map of the updated footprint of the “old Target building” . We get a lot of questions about which retailers will go where. The map image will get a better idea of the new layout. In the construction photos , you will notice an opening right beside Save on Foods, and then another right beside Penningtons. The opening right beside Penningtons will be a new corridor leading to Old Navy, Club 16 & the interior of the Centre.
Our industry is changing, and now more than ever it’s critical that we change with it. These construction projects are just the beginning of our “new normal”.
I have heard it described like…..
“retail isn’t dead, it’s just shedding it’s skin“
The same is true for Cottonwood! We remain optimistic about the future of Cottonwood, and we remain committed to supporting our retailers as they find their way to serve their customers in their new reality.
