The Owner of Sadler Square Looking for New Tenant
In an interview with Audy R. Dover, he discussed his ownership of Sadler Square, his vision for the future of the center, and his goal of placing a retail business in the available space there, vacated by Earth Fare.
“My hope is to make the center something that I can be proud of, something that is as unique as the community around it. For example, the movie theater has been a great success. Some doubted that a smaller venue like that could make it in town. But I believed that it was well worth the risk. I am happy that I was right. People come from across the region to see first-run movies there because it is comfortable and has a great snack bar. I want to have a grocer who can achieve the same success because it is unique and well-established.”
Dover has researched grocery stores that might be appropriate for the space, and he would especially like to see Trader Joe’s come to town.
“I want to find out what the Davidson community and larger region would like to see in the center, rather than having something there that I then must persuade customers to use. Many people have told me that Trader Joe’s would be a great fit for town. If folks want to have Trader Joe’s come to the space at Sadler Square, they can let them know by going to the corporate site. I have been told that requests like this will make a difference to the people who make the decisions about where to place stores.”
