U.S. Properties Group (USPG) has completed an extensive makeover of the Morrow, Georgia, retail corridor, which soon will include Nam Dae Mun, an international farmers market supercenter with an array of product lines and discount pricing. Nam Dae Mun is expected to open in early summer and will replace a 100,000-s.f. vacant Target.
Nam Dae Mun Farmers Market currently has six stores throughout metro Atlanta, according to its website. The company also has two distribution centers.
With extensive building, parking lot and landscape upgrades, the former Southlake Pavilion is now The Shoppes at Morrow Station, located in The Shoppes at Morrow Station is comprised of more than 485,685 s.f. of retail space. With the renovation, USPG anticipates demand for space in the project to increase. The development is south of Atlanta in Morrow’s historic train station junction.
Nam Dae Mun, according to developers, will be a substantial traffic generator to The Shoppes at Morrow Station, as it sits in the same parking lot adjoining a newly renovated Ashley Furniture store. The Ashley store has increased its product line with its complete renovation and includes an outlet-type center. In addition, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has seen key lease renewals since the upgrades began, including Ross Stores, Party City and Barnes & Noble, among others.
With its new name and placement in the Morrow retail corridor, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has prime retail space available and offers an ideal location with high visibility and signage, favorable rents and Interstate 75 signage availability for anchor tenants.
Gord Wiebe, director of USPG, says, “This is a tremendous opportunity you can’t buy and have to be invited into—well, I’m inviting you to come and join us.”
USPG says it has acquired and improved “value add” shopping center assets since 2002. A destination shopping area, The Shoppes at Morrow Station has an array of national big boxes and a complementary mix of regional and local retailers, according to USPG.
“We have enormous opportunity, prime locations for restaurants, boutiques and mega concept retailers. More importantly, we’re open for discussion,” adds Wiebe.
