The Shops at Village Grove Plaza features a freestanding, six-tenant, 9,200-square-foot retail pad building and a two-tenant, 2,400-square-foot shop building adjacent Stater Bros. Markets.
Totaling 11,600-square-feet, the buildings were constructed in 1976 on 0.93 acres at 1240-1282 Border Avenue in Corona and are part of the 56,100-square-foot Village Grove Plaza shopping center anchored by Stater Bros. Markets and Crunch Fitness.
The two buildings included a local tenant mix consisting of dental care, dry cleaners, laundromat, florist, donuts, liquor store, plus hair and nail salons. Village Grove Plaza shopping center sits between two signalized hard corners at Via del Rio and Border Avenue and Via Santiago and Border Avenue. Via del Rio is a connector road to the 91 Freeway, which has 257,000 cars per day.
“We generated multiple offers including two from local buyers that bid up the sales price during one of the most challenging macro-economic environments in the last 10 years due to COVID-19,” said Fryman. “The high level of competitive interest was a testament to the location, grocery anchor and internet-resistant and daily-needs tenant mix. We were able to structure a mutually beneficial closing for both buyer and seller including closing escrow on the 180th day of the buyer’s extended 1031 exchange deadline.”
Fryman continues, “Stater Bros. Markets has operated at this location since 1976 and completing a recent remodel to enhance the store with interior upgrades and updated exterior signage featuring the company’s new logo, were important factors that attracted the buyer to the property. Stater Bros. creates more frequent trips to the center and cross-shopping and visits with the local tenant mix within the shop portion of the property.”
