New Businesses are Coming to CenterPoint Shopping Center
There are a number of new businesses that are coming to a section of Grand Rapids. Some of these have already opened their doors. These range from cell phone stores and restaurants to clothing stores and skin care companies. They do have on thing in common though: they all chose to open near the corner of 28th Street and East Beltline Ave SE. This is a strategic location choice and for good reason. Commercial real estate in the area is quite expensive due to the reach of potential customers that pass through the area. These stores include Carhartt, Land’s End, T-Mobile and more.

In addition to this, across the street is Woodland Mall, allowing for access to even more shopping locations. This makes the area prime for getting exposure to a company through storefront recognition.
Companies who do their research understand why the corner of 28th Street and East Beltline Ave SE has such a high retail space value. This is a prime location for businesses to guarantee a level of exposure to the community. Not only is this an area where you can find everything you need within a square mile, but the traffic is immense. It is estimated that over 88,000 cars drive past or through this intersection each day. Colliers International is the real estate company that handles property management at CenterPoint. They do extensive research in the area and know of the value of property. They handle a number of other properties in Grand Rapids as well and have seen the city grow over the years.
Even with the boom of online business, locations such as the intersection of 28th Street and East Beltline Ave SE are still popular places for brick and morter stores. There are plenty of people who still prefer to shop in person. Other times, certain items can only be purchased in person. It helps build a better customer experience in areas such as this because of the conveinance of having stores close to each other. If you struggle finding clothes that fit you, trying them on in person is probably cheaper and easier than guessing online.
