Happy New Year!
During the past 8 months, David Wantz has been working with Nassimi Realty to relocate a store in the vacant Target building on US 31. The numerous phone calls, e-mails, and visits to other stores finally paid off. As reported in today's Indianapolis Business Journal, we have a new business to be proud of - Shoppers World, which is scheduled to open in March.
David was also able to use the Gateway Community Alliance network to show Nassimi Realty how strong a business community this is.

Discount department-store chain Shoppers World has signed a deal to take over a shuttered Target store on the south side. The New York-based chain agreed to lease the 85,000-square-foot space in Felbram Plaza North shopping center along U.S. 31 South from New York-based Nassimi Realty. Target closed the store when its lease expired in January 2009. The new Shoppers World store is scheduled to open in March, said Andrew Levian, a leasing agent with Nassimi. Shoppers World has one other location in Indianapolis, in Lafayette Square mall. That store opened in 2008, taking a 100,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by J.C. Penney. It was the first outpost in the Midwest for the chain, which operates 10 stores in New York and New Jersey. (Photo: Google Maps)
