The city is poised to get another big-box clothing store as early as the fall.
Construction of the Marshalls department store at Sonoran Creek Marketplace is on track for completion by Oct. 1, according to Mike Kelly, construction supervisor for developer Thompson Thrift.
A Marshalls spokesperson declined to give a specific opening date and would only confirm the 22,000-square-foot store will open in Maricopa.
City of Maricopa spokesman Quinn Konold said Marshalls represents city planners’ vision coming to life.
“When Maricopa residents came together to create the 2040 Vision and Strategic Plan, they let City Council and City staff know that economic development is a significant priority,” Konold said. “Now, they are witnessing in real-time the fruition of those goals and it is exciting to see. We continue to hear from an increasing number of developers and retailers how the investments in beautifying the community and a well laid out plan for growth are attracting them to want to learn more about doing business in Maricopa.”
Nathan Steele, the City’s chief economic development officer, said Maricopa will benefit from more than just having another shopping option.
“Maricopans spend $25.9 million on clothing outside of Maricopa. Bringing in more and more options, such as Marshalls, will strengthen the Maricopa economy and keep those dollars here,” Steele said when the arrival of the store was announced.
Marshalls is expected to bring 90-100 jobs to the city, about the same number as Sprouts, which opened in the summer of 2021.
Marshalls is a division of TJX Companies Inc., a leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer in the United States and worldwide. The Maricopa store will be Marshalls’ 16th Arizona location.
