Local development officials broke ground on a 35,000 square-foot retail development at the intersection of W Jackson St. Ext. and Coley Rd. in Tupelo.
The retail center will be anchored by Brooks Grocery, a 27,000 square-foot grocery store and will also include a 3,000 square-foot AT&T authorized retailer offering a full line of AT&T cell phones and traditional phone services. Additional retail space is still available.
“We are excited to be a part of the community here in Tupelo. We look forward to providing our customers a great shopping experience by offering fresh food and friendly service,” said Brooks Grocery owner Brooks Davis.
Expected to open in early 2015, Brooks Grocery will feature a full grocery section with produce, meats and seafood and will be the first grocery store of its kind to locate on Coley Rd. Brooks Grocery currently has one store in Iuka, Mississippi.
“We’ve been developing property for 20 years or so and the last 7 years we’ve had a lot of interest in a grocery store being on this side of town because the need for it is obvious,” said project developer and Cleveland Properties owner V.M. Cleveland.
“It is encouraging and exciting to see new businesses coming to Tupelo and existing businesses expand. This is just another example of how the population and the economy of this city continues to thrive,” said City of Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton.
