Anderson’s Home and Garden Showplace to open site in Virginia Beach
Anderson’s Home and Garden Showplace plans to build a 35,000-square-foot retail center on the corner of Sandbridge Road and Fisher Arch in Virginia Beach.
The project is expected to create 48 jobs with a projected payroll of $800,000.
The company has purchased the 6.7-acre site for $1.5 million. Construction costs are estimated to be $5 million. Completion is scheduled for March 2015.
Anderson’s Home & Garden Showplace, a family owned business, opened in Newport News in 1954.
The Virginia Beach location will be modeled after the Newport News location with a garden center, café, women’s boutique featuring fashion, handbags, shoes, and fragrances, design/build landscaping services and an extensive collection of seasonal, gift and home-décor items.
The Virginia Beach Development Authority approved an Economic Development Investment Program grant of $75,000 based on the total capital investment for real estate, construction, furniture, equipment and fixtures. The award is subject to City Council approving the rezoning application at its Aug. 19 meeting.
