Kettering, OH — CASTO, together with joint partner SkilkenGold, two leading real estate development and services firms, announced today that Town & Country Shopping Center will host a Grand Re-Opening celebration on Wednesday, September 14th. The event will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3:30 PM in front of T.J. Maxx.

Town & Country Shopping Center recently went through months of renovations which included a new exterior facade, fresh landscaping and an improved parking lot. Existing tenant improvements include expanded stores for Trader Joes and Tuesday Morning, as well as interior renovations to Buffalo Wild Wings and First Watch. In addition to the property renovations, Town & Country will welcome three new tenants; T.J. Maxx, Chick-fil-A and PetCo.

TJ Maxx will open a 23,000 square foot store later this month, followed by Petcos store opening in November. The construction of Chick-fil-A is slated to begin this fall with an anticipated opening date of spring 2017.

Town & Country has undergone numerous renovations over the years. The center’s grand opening was held in 1951 on 20-acres formerly used for farming. The cost of the original structure was $6 million. In 1960, two additional buildings were added to the Village Shops, along with the area that is now Stein Mart. In 1975, the storefronts were enclosed including five boutique shops and a large gourmet restaurant. In 1986, the former Metropolitan store was remodeled to accommodate 14 shops into what is now known as the Atrium.
