Simon Property Group, owner of the under construction Shops At Nanuet, announced 11 new tenants on Thursday. The list, primarily of retailers, brings the number of named tenants to more than 40. At least 70 percent of the tenants are expected to join the grand opening of the Shops At Nanuet scheduled for October.
The new additions are: J.Crew; J.Jill; Sur La Table; Corner Bakery Café; Paper Source; Big Dog Sportswear, Ann Taylor, LOFT; Tiara Jewelers; European Wax Center and Sleep Number By Select Comfort. Several of the new tenants had been disclosed by Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack at a Nanuet Civic Association meeting in June but The Shops At Nanuet would not confirm them at that time.
Although October 10 had been announced as the targeted grand opening date, it has not been finalized.
"We are stating we are going to be opening October of this year," said Shops At Nanuet General Manager Ryan Hidalgo.
He said banners heralding an October opening will go up around the construction site on Friday. Hidalgo expects in excess of 80 percent of the tenants to be open by the end of the year and 100 percent to open by spring 2014. The two or three spaces still have available should be leased soon.
"We would expect those to be leased within the next 30 days," said Hidalgo.
