As The Morgan Companies held a groundbreaking event Monday for Beaufort Station, a new 200,000-square-foot shopping center to be situated on 31 acres of land located at the southwest corner of Robert Smalls Parkway and Parris Island Gateway, five more retailers coming to the development were announced.
City of Beaufort Mayor Stephen D. Murray and South Carolina State Representative Shannon S. Erickson (R-District 124), community leaders, and representatives from The Morgan Companies were present at the development site.
During the event, The Morgan Companies announced that retailers PetSmart, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Five Below, and Rack Room Shoes will be joining the previously confirmed anchor tenants – Aldi Grocery Stores, Hobby Lobby, Ross Dress for Less, Ulta Beauty and Old Navy.
PetSmart and TJ Maxx already have Beaufort locations. Both are currently located across Robert Smalls Parkway from the Beaufort Station location in the Cross Creek shopping center. The closest Home Goods, a home furnishing and accessory store, and Rack Room Shoes locations are in Bluffton.
Five Below is a specialty discount store aimed at teens and tweens.
“We couldn’t be more excited to announce that we have leased all anchor tenant spaces at Beaufort Station,” The Morgan Companies President Trey Morgan said. “The interest in our development has been nothing short of phenomenal, and that is a credit to the Beaufort community and their dynamic and growing population.”
WIMCO Corp is serving as the general contractor for the project. Site work is under way, and Beaufort Station is expected to be open to the public in Fall 2023.
