Additional Tenants Openings at Midtown Marketplace in Madison, AL
Additional tenants have opened in the Kroger-anchored Midtown Marketplace (located at the corner of Browns Ferry Road and Wall Triana Highway in Madison, Alabama).
“With Kroger opening in early September, enthusiasm has been building among the neighborhood for additional retail and services,” said Josh Beyer, Sembler’s Senior Vice President of Development. “We’re excited about the progression of the center and the value it will add to the community and for the tenants.”
9Round, a kick-box fitness circuit gym, held its grand opening Saturday, October 1. “We held a pre-opening sale for the first 100 members – and sold out before we even opened,” said owner Steve Bump. “So we’re pretty excited! We’ll have our official grand opening in a few weeks, but with presales already above average, we expect business to be great. There’s nothing else like our gym in this area.”
Great Clips and Nail Boutique & Spa are now open.
Papa Murphy’s, a take-and-bake pizza restaurant, had its “soft opening” just before Kroger’s event. The restaurant has yet to conduct any concerted marketing efforts for its new location, in anticipation of holding its official “grand opening” party, slated for November 10-13. Even so, according to company officials, traffic has been impressive already, even without marketing efforts. “This will be a great location for us,” said owner Marshall James.
The 102,000-square-foot Kroger held its grand opening on September 6, with a party that included gift card giveaways and free breakfast items.
“There are also 4,800 square feet available on the endcap, with room for a patio area – so we’re in talks with retailers about that area, which could be subdivided into spaces as small as 1,200 square feet, but would be a perfect space for a restaurant,” said Frank Militello, a senior leasing representative with Sembler. The company says there are an additional two remaining 1,200-square-foot inline retail spaces available.
The development also includes three outparcels. One is under contract, but the other two are available.
“Getting the right tenant mix is an art,” said Beyer. “Sembler has been doing it for more than 50 years, and we’re careful in our consideration of what tenants will add the most value to each other and to the community. We’re looking forward to the next steps for Midtown Marketplace.”
