Another Reprieve for English Gardens
They'll be at Maple Village through year-end
by Sally Mitani
From the May, 2017 issue
The scorecard for the rapidly evolving Maple Village as of mid-April: Five Below open, Sierra Trading Post and Carter's/Oshkosh almost open, Radio Shack closed, and Sofia's tailoring shop moving. More on most of those next month.
Meanwhile, English Gardens, whose exit date has been a moving target, got a stay of execution through January 2018--a full year after the nursery, part of a small Michigan chain, was originally ordered to vacate. "We like the Ann Arbor market," says marketing director Jennifer Youngquest emphatically. "We want to stay in the Ann Arbor market. We are looking for another location in Ann Arbor."
Despite the delays, landlord Brixmor Property Group seems intent on reclaiming English Gardens' spot. Asked what its future might hold, spokesperson Kristen Moore emails, "No tenant announcements at this time."
English Gardens, 155 N. Maple Road (Maple Village). 332-7900. Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
