Haag Brown Commercial is eager to announce that Barnes & Noble Booksellers has found a permanent spot back in Jonesboro.
Barnes & Noble will be stationed at the fastest-growing retail corner in Jonesboro, the intersection of Caraway Road and E. Highland Drive. The beloved bookseller will occupy the former Pier One space within the Crossroads Shopping Center, which is anchored by national credit tenant Office Max.
This long-anticipated event comes on the heels of Jeremy Gamble’s acquisition of the multimillion-dollar asset. Plans are in place to revitalize and rebrand the Crossroads center, making it an extension of The Uptown, the former Sears building renovated by Ted Herget and Jeremy’s brother, Chris.
Zac Qualls, who leads Haag Brown’s leasing team, and Joshua Brown, who leads its development division, worked closely with Jeremy to cast and sell their vision to the former Mall at Turtle Creek tenant who has been missed by the community for nearly three years.
This new business will officially launch the redevelopment of the Crossroads center into “The Uptown at Crossroads.” Under new ownership, the 45,000-square-foot complex will undergo numerous aesthetic changes to complement the surrounding growth, including a new color scheme, modern exterior lighting, and improved signage.
Flanked by substantial market growth, The Uptown at Crossroads will be surrounded by numerous new businesses including Guthrie’s, Chipotle, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Ross, Maurices, The Joint Chiropractic, Tuesday Morning, Elite Eyecare, and many more. Haag Brown feels the addition of Barnes & Noble will be a catalyst for bringing more of the former mall tenants back to Jonesboro.
