The Opus Group has completed construction on a new grocery-anchored development, The Fresh Market Center in Glen Ellyn, and a lease has been signed with Firehouse Subs.
The development is anchored by The Fresh Market, a 23,790-square-foot grocery store. Firehouse Subs will occupy 2,230 square feet of space and other tenants include Great Clips and Tide Dry Cleaners, occupying 1,050 and 2,800 square feet, respectively.
“This project has been a great opportunity to partner with the village of Glen Ellyn and bring quality retailers to the area,” said Sean Spellman, vice president and general manager of Opus Development Company LLC. “The location is ideal to serve the Glen Ellyn and North Wheaton communities.”
Located on East Roosevelt Road between South Lorraine Road and South Lambert Road, the new retail center includes patio seating and 186 customer parking spaces. This is The Fresh Market’s ninth store in the state and will bring approximately 90 new jobs to the area.
“We are excited to open our new store in Glen Ellyn and to expand our reach in Illinois,” said Craig Carlock, president and chief executive officer of The Fresh Market. “We look forward to introducing The Fresh Market’s concept of quality perishables, excellent customer service and a unique atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities a rewarding new food shopping experience.”
