A fun, fashionable and fabulous new chapter at Sandusky Mall
The evolution continues at Sandusky Mall. A huge, ongoing renovation has made way for new offerings and new spaces for popular brands, some of them entering the local marketplace for the first time. Coming in 2021:
- TJMaxx will be moving from its current location to a nearly 26,000 square foot space next to Cheers. It will occupy a position in a former department store space that has been completely redeveloped.
- Nearby, Five Below will debut in a 10,276 square foot location.
- On the other side of Cheers and the food court entrance, get ready to welcome Another Broken Egg, an exciting new 5,100 square foot restaurant.
Sandusky-area shoppers are well-acquainted with TJMaxx, a retailer that combines, fashion, brand names and value. High-quality fashions arrive at the store several times a week, with each delivery containing thousands of items. The rapidly changing assortments create that “treasure hunt” shopping experience that customers love.
Five Below is one of the fastest growing value retailers on the planet, offering high-quality products loved by tweens, teens and more, with most items priced at five dollars or less. Its merchandise falls into eight distinct Five Below categories: Tech, Create, Play, Candy, Room, Style, Party, New & Now. Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Five Below has 1000 stores in 38 states
Another Broken Egg Cafe isn’t your typical breakfast, brunch and lunch place. Its menu is second-to-none, loaded with fresh ingredients and creative recipes across a wide variety of breakfast classics, memorable brunch dishes and lunchtime favorites. It is designed to feel like a casual getaway, not just a restaurant. The original Broken Egg Cafe opened in Mandeville, Louisiana in 1996. Because it was wildly popular, it has grown to a chain of more than 100 “Another” Broken Egg Cafes.
At the same time, an exciting national retail entity is currently interested in occupying a 26,611 square foot space between Five Below and TJMaxx. Discussions are ongoing and it is hoped that a deal will be finalized in the coming months.
These new stores and relocations are part of other recent changes at the mall. A new 50,000 square foot Hobby Lobby opened in the spring and, in October, Shoe Dept. Encore opened the doors on a new 13,500 square foot location on Center Court.
Sandusky Mall has been undergoing a dramatic transformation, one that will continue in coming months. Already, sections of the mall structure have been removed to create new green space and easier customer access. In addition to the offerings described above, a new residential component is being developed on a portion of the mall complex. Additional retail spaces are also being prepared for future tenants.
The Sandusky Mall Complex, located at 4314 Milan Road (U.S. Route 250), near Sandusky, Ohio, has been serving the people of the “North Coast” since 1976. It currently comprises more than one million square feet of retail space. It is the premier shopping destination for the community, with great names like JCPenney, Dick’s Sporting Goods, American Eagle Outfitters, Best Buy, Herman’s Furniture & Design, Ulta Beauty and nearly 50 additional retailers, restaurants and other businesses. The state-of-the-art Cinemark Theater offers the finest cinema experience in the area. Sandusky Mall Complex is owned and managed as part of the Cafaro family of companies, based in Niles, Ohio. One of the nation’s largest privately held shopping center developers, the Cafaro organization has developed more than 30 million square feet of commercial real estate in 14 states.
