Is Home Depot coming?

Last year Home Depot placed 12.7 acres of their lot on the market for sale and many of us assumed they would not be building in San Tan Valley.  Well it looks like Home Depot's plans may be changing.  They have been reaching out to the county to discuss building again.  They are building three new locations in Arizona, as well as remodeling two existing locations.  Will they finally decide to open one of those locations in San Tan Valley? Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Is Costco building in San Tan Valley?

There has been no information released that Costco is considering San Tan Valley.  Costco has very specific requirements and at this time we do not meet those requirements.  As of March 28, 2018 however Costco has opened discussion with a site planner to look into sites in Queen Creek, with the hopes of having a decision made by year end.  Stay tuned for more information!

We'd also like your input

Behind the Urgent Care Extra, located at Gary & Empire (by Circle Cross) there is about 8,000 sq ft available for lease.  

The space will be broken down into smaller units for multiple  ease tenants.  After speaking with the developers, they'd like to hear from YOU!  What you would like to see built there?  Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook here.

Remember the lots will be about 1500-2000 sq ft or so think more along the lines of small retail shops, boutiques, services, etc.
