MAY 25, 2017 (Los Angeles, CA) – Champion Glendora, a grocery-anchored neighborhood retail center located at 655 S Grand Ave in the City of Glendora, California, held its grand opening on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017. The opening was celebrated with the City of Glendora, Glendora Chamber of Commerce, and the center’s tenants, inaugurated by a ribbon cutting ceremony.
City of Glendora Mayor Gary Boyer was in attendance, alongside city council and representatives from the region’s legislative offices, as well as the Glendora Chamber of Commerce Board Chair Fawn Imboden. The ceremony also highlighted the center’s tenants including Marshalls, Sprouts, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Orangetheory Fitness, Creamistry, and Oke Poke.
“We are excited to be able to bring stores like Sprouts and Marshalls to the community,” comments Chris Wilson, Executive Vice President and Retail Partner of Champion. “This new shopping center will serve the residents’ growing needs while providing quality services close to home.”
Champion Glendora was acquired by an affiliate of Champion Real Estate Company in 2016 and reconfigured and repositioned into a 70,500 square feet grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping center. Two new retail pads were also added in the existing parking field that features drive-thru accessibility.
“We are very pleased to see the progress that Champion has made with the center,” said City Manager Chris Jeffers. “In addition to the aesthetic improvements completed, Champion worked with City staff to attract tenants that would be a welcomed addition to the residents of Glendora and surrounding communities. ”
Sprouts and Marshalls are now open, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is expected to open next month in June, and the other tenants will soon after follow.
The center is conveniently located just north of the I-210 Freeway at the intersection of West Route 66 and South Grand Avenue, and just minutes away from Azusa Pacific University’s East Campus.
