SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento’s Town & Country Village is getting a major facelift in the form of three superstores taking up shop at the struggling shopping center.
Real estate developer Donahue Schriber announced the upcoming arrival of Bed, Bath & Beyond, TJ Maxx and Ross Dress for Less at center on the corner of Fulton and Marconi avenues.
The stores will be added to the existing 27 food, services, and specialty stores within the village shopping center. The developer said the stores hope to open by the end of the year.
Built in 1946 on Fulton Avenue, Town & Country Village is one of the first shopping centers west of the Mississippi. Family-owned Anderson Bros. Pharmacy has served the local area since 1949, and is the oldest retail tenant of Town & Country Village.
Pharmacy owner Steve Anderson said he hopes the arrival of the chain stores will revive the shopping center.
“We are hopeful and confident that the addition of these established and successful retailers will return this historic center to the destination it has been in the past,” he said. “While it’s a departure from the boutique shops that preceded them, it is also a major boost for the area and current tenants as we all adjust to an improving economy.”
Donahue Schriber, a Costa Mesa-based real estate investment trust, bought the shopping center in 2004 and started work on a $20 million remodel in November.
