More than 55,000 square feet of new leases have been completed at Metrocenter Mall since the start of 2013, including the most recent—a 13,327-square-foot lease by Rainbow Shops, one of the fastest-growing junior clothing retailers in the United States. The store opened on Aug. 18.
According to Blackford and Specialty Leasing Manager Jessica Theberge, the mall is in negotiations with several other national fashion retailers, and hopes to welcome those companies to the mall later this year and into 2014.
Other leases completed during second quarter include Denali Contemporary Furniture; Vision Mattress Depot; Pop Shots Photo; All American Burger; Jewelry World; and Cinnabon. Also new to the mall is the International Cancer Advocacy Network, which opened an office in June.
These tenants join Ashley Furniture, the Scottsdale International Auto Museum and Metrocenter Arcade, which opened at Metrocenter Mall during first quarter 2013.
New York-based Carlyle Development Group (CDG) purchased Metrocenter in January 2012. The goal: to re-establish Metrocenter as a safe, fun, dynamic family destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.
