Mall of Monroe fills anchor store spots with new tenants

For the first time in more than a decade, the anchor stores at the Mall of Monroe will be filled with new businesses, including those not typically associated with a retail mall.

The company that owns the Mall of Monroe will soon achieve a longstanding goal: the largest spaces at the shopping center on North Monroe Street will once again be occupied.

For the first time in more than a decade, anchor stores that have stood vacant will become homes to new enterprises. 

It’s a significant accomplishment, said Joe Bell, director of corporate communication at Cafaro, the company that owns the mall. He credits the milestone to the work of Cafaro’s leasing agents. The new tenants are representative of a wide array of businesses and reflect the new, mixed-used community center vision for the property, Bell added. 

“The process of attracting new anchor tenants has always been challenging — it’s not unusual for negotiations to take years to complete,” Bell said. “Fortunately, our leasing executives have developed great relationships within the retail industry; they are also very resourceful in envisioning new uses for space that might be popular in the community.
