Burlington Coat Factory announced the signing of a 75,890 square foot location at Tri City Center (http://www.tricitycenter.com) in Redlands, California. The center is undergoing a repositioning, revitalization, and expansion to become a mixed-use district known as the Redlands Promenade. Burlington Coat Factory and Redlands Promenade (now Tri City Center) anchor the east section of the Inland Empire’s vibrant Alabama-Waterman Corridor (the “Corridor”). Burlington Coat Factory joins Ross Dress for Less, Styles for Less, Citiwear, and other retailers, at Tri City Center providing an impressive destination for shoppers seeking great value in brand name apparel and accessories.

“We see the Burlington Coat Factory deal as another sign of resilience for the top restaurant and retailer tenants situated in the Alabama-Waterman Corridor,” said Anoushavan Abrahamian, Chairman of A+O Properties. Burlington Coat Factory brings a destination retailer to Redlands and the Corridor, well known to consumers for a large selection of designer and brand name coats, clothing, and shoes for the entire family.

The Alabama-Waterman Corridor along Interstate 10 in the cities of Redlands and San Bernardino, between the Alabama Street and Waterman Avenue exits, has been a hotbed for national retailers over the last decade. “The Corridor is the next major retail, restaurant, and entertainment node in the Inland Empire, east of Victoria Gardens,” according to Jeffrey Morton, leasing director for A+O Properties, “it is clearly the location of choice in this part of the Inland Empire region.”

A study commissioned by A+O Properties by retail consultant StoneCreek Partners (http://www.stonecreekllc.com), notes that more than two hundred brand name retailers and almost 50 top national restaurant chains have located in the Alabama – Waterman Corridor – a 4-mile stretch of Interstate 10. The Corridor’s east section includes the soon-to-be Redlands Promenade (currently known as Tri City Center) and Majestic Realty’s Citrus Plaza. The line-up of retailers in the Corridor includes Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Lowes, Target, Sports Chalet, Trader Joe’s, Guitar Center, The Sports Authority, Costco, David’s Bridal, Sephora, JCPenney, Ross Dress for Less, along with more than 200 hundred other well-known national and brand name retailers. Restaurant chains that have located in the Corridor include BJ’s Restaurant Brewery, Chili’s, Claim Jumper, Elephant Bar, Mimi’s Café’, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, Red Robin, T.G.I. Friday’s, and several dozen others.
