Grand Rapids’ 28th Street Mega Mall to Reopen as New Outlet Store
Have you missed shopping at the 28th Street Mega Mall? The Grand Rapids' retail center that shuttered last year is set to reopen as a new outlet store.
Wood TV 8 reports that the warehouse at 350 28th St. SE that once housed more than 30 vendors is transforming into a new B2 Outlets bin store.
According to Loopnet, the 76,370 SF building was first erected in 1957.
From posts to the still-active 28th St. Mega Mall Facebook page, it appears the location was in business for the more than 15 years, with different vendors selling clothes, shoes, toys, bedding, and more. There were also Mexican restaurants on site. It closed at the end of January 2021.
According to Wood TV 8, the building is undergoing renovations, costing approximately $310,000, which include moving the restrooms, installing new flooring, and repainting.
Father and son team Duane and Matt Smith founded B2 Outlet Stores in Hudsonville in 2013. Since then, they've grown to more than 20 locations throughout West Michigan. The products they sell come from different big box stores that are liquidating excess, overstock, and seasonal merchandise.
According to their Facebook page the new location will have more than 100 bins to dig through each week,
B2 Bargain Bins is an exciting and innovative concept in discount retail where prices fall each day (Tuesday-Saturday) until everything sells. Items are added and updated weekly.
The grand opening is set for February 22nd at 10a.m.
