A sizeable storefront situated along one of Passaic County’s most prominent highways will soon be home to an Indian grocer and market as Subzi Mandi has inked a deal to open inside Clifton Plaza.
Levin Management Corporation has announced a lease agreement with Subzi Mandi to take 16,000 square feet of the property. Situated along Route 46 at the intersection of Van Houten Avenue, the multi-tenant shopping center is estimated to draw about 1.5 million customers per year.
Subzi Mandi currently has ten locations throughout New Jersey, New York and Texas. The supermarket carries a wide selection of produce, dairy, spices, frozen and dry food items, and more.
The upcoming Clifton Plaza store is slated to feature a bakery and kitchen where fresh breads, curries and other dishes will be produced and pre-packaged for sale. A store website, currently under development, will accept online orders.
The commitment brings the 95,000-square-foot Passaic County shopping center to 100% occupancy. Levin’s Senior Leasing Representative Vanessa Kelty arranged the transaction on behalf of property ownership, while Leor Hemo of Vantage Commercial Real Estate represented the tenant.
“Grocery tenants are outstanding traffic drivers and a beneficial component for any shopping center,” said Kelty. “Subzi Mandi serves a niche customer base in this marketplace and was drawn to Clifton Plaza’s strong demographics and visible location.”
An estimated opening date for Subzi Mandi’s newest store has not yet been announced.
Other tenants within the Clifton Plaza property include Big Lots, Blink Fitness, Dollar Tree, Valley National Bank, Work-n-Gear, Dunkin’ Donuts, Verizon, New Jersey Eyes, GameStop, Sally Beauty Supply, Finna Nail Lounge, and Epic Unisex Salon.
