So there is a lot of information floating around about the new Mega shopping center that is being built in Collegeville, PA about the status of the project and when it is scheduled to open. I wanted to help to try and clear some of this up for residents and those thinking of moving to this wonderful area.
The 1st Phase of the shopping center including the re-opening of Arcola Rd to Mennonite Rd is now scheduled to open on October 11, 2009. The stores that are scheduled to open during this initial phase are as follows:
Wegman's Grocery, Best Buy, LA Fitness, Dick's Sporting Goods, DSW Shoes, Ulta Cosmetics, Five Below, Staples, PetsMart, Michaels', Raymour & Flanigan, PNC Bank, PF Chang's, Eastern Mountain Sport (EMS), and Olive Garden.
Phase 2 (Main Street with the lifestyle tenancy) will open no earlier than Summer 2010, but could be pushed back into the Spring of 2011.
The stores that will be occupying this phase of the center will be determined closer to the scheduled open date of this part of the shopping center. Some of the stores that were previously reported to be going into the shopping center have come on troubled financial times and barring unforeseen turnarounds will not be part of the center.
If you would like more info on the center or the general Collegeville area please don't hesitate to contact me.
