Kornwasser Shopping Center Properties, working in tandem with Burnham USA on the Estrella Plaza project, has announced the timeline for stores to open within the shopping center.

“It currently looks like Sprouts will be open toward the end of April, as will T.J. Maxx, and as far as Ulta Beauty, Sports Authority and Stein Mart, it looks like they will open in September,” Sue Jagodzinski, a development manager with Kornwasser Shopping Center Properties, said.

The small shops around the center have remained open during construction and continue to operate business as usual.

“It’s been kind of a painful process all along and even during construction,” Jagodzinski said. “Certainly we’re looking forward to having these stores open and stores that serve the community and create some mutually beneficial relationships for everyone.”

Jagodzinski said the parking lots around the area should be cleared of construction materials by the middle or end of March, depending on the weather.

“We’re doing our best to work diligently toward completion and we want to get these stores open as soon as possible,” Jagodzinski said.

  • Sports Authority has filed for bankruptcy and is closing 140 stores.
    Seems unlikely we’ll have a spanking new one here now.
    Any comments from Kornwasser on this development?
