Specialty food retailer plans fall of 2013 opening

 

Simon Property Group, Inc., announced today Fairway Market, the specialty food retailer, has agreed to become an anchor at the new Shops at Nanuet.  Fairway Market’s 66,000 square foot store, the first in Rockland County, is expected to open with the project in the fall of 2013.  It is the first Fairway Market in the Simon portfolio.

“We believe that the Shops at Nanuet is among the best retail locations in all of Rockland County,” said Charles Santoro, chairman of Fairway Market. “This collaboration of Fairway Market and the ‘World’s Leading Retail Real Estate Company’ will create a wonderful shopping experience for the residents of this region.”

Thomas Schneider, executive vice president at Simon, said the demolition of the Nanuet Mall, which is now in progress, is right on schedule with full demolition to be completed in mid-August. Site work for the new construction commenced this week and work on the building foundations for the new buildings will begin in late August.

“We’re thrilled that Fairway Market is coming to Shops at Nanuet,” said Schneider. “We believe their arrival is an extremely auspicious beginning in reestablishing this property as a great retail and entertainment destination.”
