FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SLUMBERLAND FURNITURE TO JOIN QUINCY MALL AS ANCHOR TENANT
(Peoria, IL – February 28, 2017) – Cullinan Properties is pleased to announce that Slumberland Furniture will be opening a new store at the Quincy Mall in the fall of 2017. Slumberland will join Quincy Mall’s collection of existing retail tenants and further strengthen the mall as the dominant shopping destination in the 29-county Quincy trade area.
As a premier national furniture retailer, Slumberland will greatly complement the mall’s existing tenants as the first furniture retailer to join the mall. Slumberland will add to the mall’s diverse offerings, giving shoppers a broader experience. The retailer is projecting to generate even higher sales figures than the previous occupant JC Penney, benefitting not only the mall, but the City of Quincy and the greater community. Slumberland Furniture was so confident in the projected growth of Quincy Mall and the Quincy market they decided to invest long-term in its success with this corporate-owned store location.
“We were seeking to broaden our product offerings at Quincy Mall in order to have a variety of destination shops to attract shoppers seeking all sorts of merchandise throughout the year,” said Vice President and Director of Leasing, Kathleen Brill. “We’re pleased to have a quality national retailer like Slumberland making this major investment in Quincy Mall.”
These exciting steps for the mall could not have been made without the City of Quincy’s support. Sean Garrett, Cullinan’s President of Acquisitions and Director of Community Relations, stated, “The City of Quincy was great to work with. Their collaboration was vital in securing this new anchor tenant and in laying the framework for our multi-year investment plan. Quincy’s economy continues to shine due to their diversified workforce and employer base and we are excited to continue being a part of this great community”.
This transaction kicks-off a multi-year plan to further develop Quincy Mall. These improvements will result in an investment of over $4 million dollars directly into the mall. In addition to the opening of Slumberland, Quincy Mall patrons and tenants can expect new mall pylon signage and enhancements to the interior décor before the end of the year. Cullinan Properties is also currently in negotiations with several other retailers looking to join the lineup at Quincy Mall.
