How a Community with 32,000 People Landed a Publix and Academy Sports Anchored Shopping Center

A case study on Cookeville, TN

10:00 AM CST


Hear from the developer, city and attorney on the several year journey to successfully open a 220,000+ SF shopping center in a rural TN community.
The Shoppes at Eagle Point will create 600+ new jobs and an estimated $80 million in gross annual sales. Tenants include Publix, Shoe Carnival, Five Below, Ulta, Ross, Academy Sports, PetSmart, Torrid, Carters, Allure Nails, Ascend Federal Credit Union, Castle Dental, Five Guys Burgers, Panera Bread, AT&T, Chipotle, and Panda Express. This project would not have happened without diligence, leadership and a public private partnership.

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
