Big Lots Opening Retail Store in Menomonee Falls
The closeout retailer hopes to open before Christmas in the North Pointe Centre across from Menomonee Falls High School. Jo-Ann Fabrics will also relocate into the same shopping center by spring 2013.
If you’ve driven past the North Pointe Centre across from Menomonee Falls High School over the past few weeks you’ve probably noticed there’s been construction activity inside the former Pick’n Save location.
Big Lots will open its doors inside North Pointe before the Christmas shopping season. Big Lots currently operates two stores in Milwaukee and one store in West Allis. The company is the nation’s largest brand-name closeout retailer and operates more than 1,400 stores in 48 states. The store sells a variety of products including clothing, furniture, housewares, gifts, and groceries.
Jo-Ann Fabrics will move and open a little later, however. The fabric and craft store plans to move from its current location in Falls, N84W1560 Appleton Ave., into the North Pointe Centre by spring of 2013.
For roughly two years - since the Super Pick’n Save opened across the street - the shopping center has been home to one of the larger vacancies in Falls. CBRE Commercial Real Estate representative Sandy Golden said the new additions are welcome businesses on Northpoint Drive.
“We’re very excited about these two tenants for the shopping center,” Golden said. “This should be exciting for the community and exciting for the smaller businesses that are in that shopping center. They will generate a lot of vehicle and foot traffic for that side of town.”
