Levin Management Corp. said Wednesday it arranged for grocery chain Lidl to open its newest Garden State location at Brunswick Shopping Center in North Brunswick.
The 288,000-square-foot retail property is exclusively leased and managed by LMC, which arranged the 28,000-square-foot, long-term commitment for the German discount grocer.
The North Brunswick location marks Lidl’s 10th food market in New Jersey and the first in-state Lidl lease secured by LMC, which has a long history as a grocery-anchored retail specialist.
Lidl sells its products in more than 100 stores across nine East Coast states.
“The addition of this growing, sought-after grocer is an exciting win for Brunswick Shopping Center and area residents alike,” said LMC Senior Leasing Representative Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty, who arranged the Lidl lease as landlord representative. “As an essential category – and one that has proven to be Internet-resistant – grocery is a significant element and a tremendous traffic driver for any shopping center. Additionally, Lidl’s value-priced platform makes the brand even more desirable during this challenging time for many consumers.”
Brunswick Shopping Center sits on Milltown Road just off Route 1. Lidl joins a co-tenancy that includes a strong mix of national, regional and local retail, restaurants and service providers such as LA Fitness, Muscle Maker Grill, GNC, Dollar Tree, Sally Beauty, McDonald’s, Sherwin Williams, and Community Dental.
