Home Goods Store to Join New ShopRite in Cortlandt
An internationally-owned home goods store will join the new ShopRite supermarket in the Cortlandt Crossing Shopping Center in Mohegan Lake this fall.
Homesense, which recently expanded to the United States, will open its first store in Westchester County when it occupies nearly 25,000 square feet in the 130,000-square-foot shopping center, located on 36 acres across Route 6 from the Cortlandt Town Center.
Cortlandt Crossing and the Cortlandt Town Center are both owned by Acadia Realty Trust. A groundbreaking ceremony for Cortlandt Crossing took place in October 2016.
Cortlandt Supervisor Linda Puglisi said she is pleased Homesense has chosen Cortlandt.
“Homesense will be a tremendous addition for our economic growth in Cortlandt. I understand that this will be the only Homesense store in the region,” Puglisi said. “It will provide new jobs, revenue and shopping for our community. I’m looking forward to the grand opening of Cortlandt Crossing this fall.”
ShopRite’s existing store on Route 6 will close once the new superstore opens its doors, which, according to store employees, will be in early November. The current building is on the market. Puglisi has said in the past it would be an ideal location for an indoor ice skating rink, a business she has coveted for years.
Besides Homesense, Verizon will also be setting up shop at Cortlandt Crossing in a free-standing 6,000-square-foot building. Another 12,266 square feet of retail space is available next to ShopRite.
Two other free-standing buildings, 8,000 and 5,000 square feet, are being constructed, with at least one expected to house a restaurant.
