Goshen Plaza Renovations Attract National Retailers
Gaithersburg, Md. National retailers Pet Valu and Metro PCS, and retailer International Latin Grocer have joined Goshen Plaza on the heels of the center’s renovation, Elion Partners announced today. Pet Valu operates one of the largest pet retail operations in North America and has more than 300 stores in the United States, providing premium pet foods, supplies and accessories. Pet Valu has a 2,400 square-foot location at Goshen Plaza.
The addition of Pet Valu, Metro PCS and International Latin Grocer add to the recent momentum of Goshen Plaza which includes upgrades to its exterior, landscaping and parking lots, and long term lease renewals of CVS and McDonald’s. Additional lease renewals include El Paisano, Magic Nails, Hunan Express, Subway, Montgomery Village Veterinary Center, and Milestone Cleaners.
“Goshen Plaza is in a very sought-after location in Gaithersburg,” says Jim Farrell, Executive Director of Leasing and Brokerage at Rappaport, who manages the leasing strategy and activities for Elion Partners at Goshen Plaza. “Pet Valu had been operating in the market in an adjacent center and decided to move to Goshen Plaza to accommodate their expansion plans.”
The property renovations included repaving of the front parking lot, and painting of the shopping center. New soffit and beams wrapped in stained wood were installed under the canopy and a new light line was installed along the roof. The landscaping improvements opened property sightline and enhanced visibility, and new trees, flowers and shrubbery were installed in the islands and along the front entrances to the center.
“Our goal is to meet the community needs and continually enhance Goshen Plaza,” said Gloria Fernandez, Managing Director of Asset Management, Elion Partners. “The addition of more premier retailers complements and enhances the tenant mix at the center and ensures it will remain a top community destination for years to come.”
Pet Valu and other tenants of Goshen Plaza will welcome the community with a Grand Opening event on March 18, 2017. The first 50 people to make a purchase at Pet Valu will receive a free goody bag and the event will feature refreshments, raffle prizes, and adoptions.
