GLENDORA, Calif., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of Glendora is delighted to announce that Sprouts Farmers Market and Marshalls will be expanding into Glendora. The nationally known grocer and retailer will position themselves as co-anchors at the former Ralphs center on the southeast corner of Route 66 and Grand Ave. Sprouts will offer healthy living to the community with its fresh, natural and organic produce and meats, full service deli, bakery, and more. Marshalls will bring the community additional shopping opportunities, offering an assortment of merchandise including fashionable brand name family apparel, footwear, and home décor at reasonable prices.
Champion Real Estate Company, a well-known local developer, recently acquired the former Ralphs property. Champion approached the City in 2015 with their redevelopment plans for the center and the plans were approved by the Planning Commission this past March. "We are pleased with the commitment demonstrated by Champion along with their ability to procure two national tenants," City Manager Chris Jeffers continued, "The investment confirms that Glendora continues to be a strong and favorable community to conduct business."
In addition to bringing in national tenants, Sprouts and Marshalls, Champion intends to attract retailers and quick serve restaurants to the remaining inline shop space and the two new buildings along Route 66 and Grand Ave. Champion and the City are seeing strong interest for these spaces and expect the center to offer the community a diverse selection of eateries and retailers. "The center is well-positioned with excellent frontage to the dominant retail corridor in the area," commented Parker Champion, Senior Vice President. "We are confident that this value-add repositioning will transform the property into a highly-desired neighborhood center."
Champion has recently begun the initial phase of the project with an expected target completion date of June 2017.
