INLAND EMPIRE 198 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2017 pire? What opportunities do you see for retailers? UMANSKY : Our marketplace is similar to many markets around the country. We are gravitating toward more food uses and unique grocery concepts. The first 365 by Whole Foods in the market will soon open in Upland. Sprouts and Smart & Final have been very aggressive in opening new stores. We are seeing a lot of meals-to-go and in-store dining from grocery retailers. The Hispanic grocers are also seeking opportunities, although they are in a phase where there are few locations available. These include Carde- nas Markets, Vallarta Supermarkets and Superior Grocers. Likely, they will have to begin doing ground up development if they want to expand. Another catego- ry that is taking off is health related uses and fitness. There is a growing demand by these types of users for retail space. The Inland Empire is a very family oriented region; people are busy with their fami- lies and their jobs. Retail concepts that do well here provide the conveniences those families need, as well as provide enter- tainment. There is a great new entertain- ment retailer in the market called Big Al's, which recently opened in Ontario. It is a cross between Dave & Buster's and Lucky Strike. They have done an amazing job at hitting what this market loves. They chose Haven City Market is a unique new indoor marketplace anchored by a Food Hall and grocer that is planned for a former 75,000-square-foot JC Penney location in Rancho Cucamonga, California. THE CITY OF ONTARIO IS BUILDING A BETTER TOMORROW BY WORKING WITH ITS PARTNERS TO DEVELOP A COMPLETE COMMUNITY. VISIT US AT BOOTH C2228 AT IC SC RECON TO LEARN ABOUT UPCOMING PROJECTS!
