RGB Architects is currently working with the Carpionato Group in design for conversion of a Benny’s Store in Mansfield, MA to become a Dollar General store; this may be the first Benny’s location to reopen.
As PBN reports, Carpionato Group purchased all of the Benny’s Stores locations and is seeking to redevelop these locations:
When can we expect to see some redevelopment on those sites? The first [former] Benny’s will open for Christmas, in early December. Then they’ll be in waves, going forward, over the next 36 months, by the time they’re all fully leased out. Each building is going to be divided into one, two, up to four or five tenants, depending on the size. So, a Benny’s typically was 27,000 square feet. These tenants that I’m discussing are typically in the range of [10,000 square feet].
