Discount store will be at Shoppes at Summit

A discount store will be located next to Dick’s Sporting Goods in the Shoppes at Summit.

Five Below, a retail chain that sells products for no more than $5 will join a variety of other stores in the development currently under construction in the Summit Corporate Center off Julian Road near Interstate 85.

Five Below is included on a flyer for the site used by Providence Group, the Charlotte-based firm marketing the development.

Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Five Below started in 2002 and currently has around 350 locations. The chain sells a wide range of products, from food to school supplies, and is aimed toward the teen and pre-teen market. It’s slogan is “hot stuff, cool prices.”

The nearest location to Salisbury is at Concord Mills.

Hobby Lobby and Dick’s are the two anchor stores in phase 1 of the development. Land is set aside for a potential phase 2. The site is being developed by the Hutton Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Phase 1 also has several vacant lots around it that could be developed.

Kirkland’s, a home decor store, Mattress Firm and Salsarita Fresh Cantina will also have stores in phase 1. There is still about 40,000 square feet of retail space available in the initial site plan, according to the flyer.

Salsarita’s, a Mexican restaurant based in Charlotte, and Mattress Firm will share space in a 13,000-square-foot building on the east side of the complex. Kirkland’s will be on the end of the row of stores that includes Hobby Lobby and Dick’s Sporting Goods. At the other end of the row is space, 23,000 square feet, for another store.

Local officials see the The Shoppes at Summit as an economic boon for the area — especially because of the additional sales tax revenue it could generate for the county.

Hutton Co., based in Chattanooga, has done work in Salisbury before. It was behind the Belk and Wallace Commons expansion off Klumac Road. After completing that, Hutton secured an option on land in the county-owned corporate park.
