HomeGoods to Occupy Former Borders Location

The company agreed to lease the Bushy Hill retail space in April.

It's been almost a year since the Borders Group closed its Simsbury location and the building has remained empty ever since. Soon, the vacant retail space at 500 Bushy Hill Road will once again be host to consumer activity.

Last month, Charter Realty and Development announced that it has leased the 23,500-square-foot retail space to HomeGoods.

HomeGoods, a TJX Company, is a retail home fashion store introduced in 1992 and operates approximately 336 stores, according to Charter Realty.

Hiram Peck, Director of Planning and Land Use for the town of Simsbury, said the town has not received any applications for signage or floor plans from the company. Before the company moves forward with use of the space it will have to present plans to town officials for approval, Peck said.

TJX and Charter Realty have not responded to inquiries about the proposed store location.

The HomeGoods Simsbury location represents the 31st deal the commercial real estate company has completed with TJX Company, according to a release.

Believe it or not, times change and development happens. Unless you have a "pause" button for time, you better get used to the world changing around you - always has and always will.

When Staples was an A&P there were businesses on RT 44, it is a commercial district, it always has been. Before the A&P it was an apple orchard. It is named Crowley's Corner after the former owner.

I keep watching but it's not yet open. TJX moved out last summer. Home Goods is very different than the other businesses around here. Hopefully it will bring more business to the shopping center and to ALL the businesses there, including my favorite BB&B. I would have liked to see a place like LL Beans, or a decent sports store move into the building. Cabellas, for example.

Yayyyyyy. Home Goods. I can't wait. I am going to be there opening day waiting for the doors to open. LOL
Just don't understand why Home Goods would be the same plaza as BB&B?
