Two big name retailers are coming to Fort Collins.  In midtown Fort Collins, The Square shopping center will be welcoming Sierra Trading Post & Trader Joe's!

Both stores are expecting to open near the fall, as Sierra Trading post hopes to open by Sept 1. on the center's southwest corner. Trader Joe's is hoping for an Oct. 1 opening on The Square's northwest corner.

It's not just the construction you see while passing by, these two retailers' set the stage for a larger change ahead for 3500 S. College Ave. By this time next year, a lot more big name tenants, could join existing stores in an expanded and "de-malled" center.
