For Tucker shoppers, the Meridian Shopping Center at Lavista Road and Northlake Parkway has long been a source of interest. From the excitement of groundbreaking to the announcement of anchor stores and tenants, the project has been watched closely from day one.
This month, Tucker’s newest shopping destination becomes a reality.
Dick’s Sporting Goods and Hobby Lobby will open their doors in May, following the late April openings of Sprouts and DSW. Ross Dress for Less is targeting an opening on June 19.
Along with the five anchor stores, the development will feature casual dining options like Newk’s Eatery, Jimmy John’s and Einstein Bros./Caribou Coffee. There are no announced opening dates for those businesses.
“Meridian is a huge plus for the City of Tucker,” said Community and Economic Development Director John McHenry. “This is the first major development that’s been built out since we became a city. Now to see it come to fruition is really exciting and I think it’s just the start of some great commercial and residential investments that will be happening along Northlake Parkway and in the City of Tucker.”
Tucker Meridian, which sits just feet from I-285, is the biggest, latest example of developers looking to capitalize on the location and demographics of our Tucker community.
