MOUNT HOLLY – Two home-improvement chains have expanded with new stores in Burlington County.
LL Flooring will occupy a 9,600-square-foot store at Fairground Plaza in Mount Holly, while Burlington Design Center will occupy a 3,400-square-foot space at Chestnut Hill Plaza in Cinnaminson, leasing agents say.
LL Flooring, formerly known as Lumber Liquidators, sells hard-surface flooring and accessories at more than 400 stores nationwide.
Burlington Design Center sells paints, stains, window treatments and other design elements. The company, founded in 2005, currently has locations in Mount Laurel and Florence.
Opening dates for the stores were not announced.
Both stores want to ride a wave of interest in home improvements, leasing agents said.
“This category is well positioned for strong performance, based on sustained growth in homeowner remodeling and maintenance spending,” said Fred Younkin of Levin Management Corp., leasing and management agent at Fairground Plaza.
The shopping center, anchored by an Acme supermarket, is a 179,000-square-foot shopping center at High Street and Woodpecker Lane.
He noted Fairground Plaza taps a market within a five-mile radius of more than 80,000 residents with an average household income of more than $107,000.
Burlington Design Center also expects to tap “a growing demand for home improvement,” said Monica Walsh of Vantage Commercial, a Cherry Hill realty firm that helped secure the lease.
The Cinnaminson shopping center is on northbound Route 130 at Chestnut Hill Drive.
