SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RC Willey, one of America’s top home furnishing retailers, announced today that it will build a new, state-of-the-art retail store in the new Delta Shores development in Sacramento, Calif., and become one of the anchor tenants. The RC Willey showroom will be a full-service retail location featuring furniture, appliances, electronics, mattresses and floor coverings. Grand opening of the new location is targeted for fall 2017.
The announcement comes on the heels of RC Willey opening a new store in Draper, Utah, in April 2014, and the upcoming April 2015 opening of new store in Orem, Utah.
“The Sacramento area has been a great market for RC Willey. The current RC Willey store in Rocklin has been very successful, and we are confident the new store will allow us to serve more customers in the Sacramento area,” Scott Hymas, CEO of RC Willey, said.
Under development by Merlone Geier Partners, Delta Shores is an 800-acre, master-planned, mixed-use development, entitled for 1.3 million square feet of retail space, as well as over 4,900 residential units. The project is located in the southern portion of Sacramento, adjacent to the soon-to-be-completed Cosumnes River Blvd interchange on Interstate 5. In addition to the new interchange, an extension of Cosumnes River Blvd to its current point of termination at Franklin Blvd. is underway, creating the region’s most significant cross-connector between Interstate 5 and Highway 99. Both of these major infrastructure projects are slated to be complete by the end of 2015.
“M&H Realty Partners is thrilled to have RC Willey as one of the anchor tenants for our project. They will be a fantastic addition both for the project, as well as the surrounding community,” Gary Muljat, Vice President for Merlone Geier Partners, said.
This new RC Willey location will total roughly 160,000 square feet with approximately 130 employees. The new store will feature an open, airy and modern design in a two-story building. Glass exterior walls and skylights will allow natural light to fill the space, and the store’s interior will be graced with 14-foot ceilings on the ground floor.
