Irgang Group has signed national retailer Boot Barn to a lease for a 14,354-square-foot store at Union Lake Crossing, a 393,000-square-foot power center serving the greater Millville-Vineland market in southern New Jersey.
Opening this fall, the 14,353-square-foot location will be among two initial stores that the 303-unit chain is opening in New Jersey later this year as it pushes northward along the East Coast from existing locations in Delaware and Pennsylvania. The other New Jersey store will be in Cherry Hill. The retailer will join a store lineup at Union Lake Crossing that includes Target, Shop-Rite, Kohl’s, Ross, Staples and PetSmart.
Currently operating in 38 states, Boot Barn ranks as the nation’s leading lifestyle retailer of western and work-related footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and children, the company said.
Irgang Group, a Nyack, New York-based real estate investment and management firm, acquired the 43.39-acre site from Goodman Properties in November 2021.
“Our exclusive leasing agent, Metro Commercial Real Estate, has been working diligently to introduce new tenants that will make Union Lake Crossing an even more dynamic destination for residents and daytime workers in our region,” said Irgang Group CEO Mark Irgang. “With their unique offering, Boot Barn fit that bill perfectly. Having witnessed their special brand of merchandising at Poplin Place, a center we recently purchased in North Carolina, we are thrilled to have them as the first new tenant since our acquisition of Union Lake.”
Boot Barn was represented by CBRE.
