The new LaSalle Center Plaza expansion has landed its first two tenants.
Benderson Development Co., which is adding the 110,000-square-foot wing to the plaza, confirmed that PetCo and Bed Bath & Beyond have signed long term leases for the shopping center. The plaza is located on the site of the former LaSalle High School in Niagara Falls.
PetCo is leasing 15,000-square-feet while Bed Bath & Beyond has agreed to lease 22,000-square-feet in the plaza. Both stores should be open by early next year.
In other deals:
• Benderson has signed a deal to bring a Checker's Drive-In to the corner of Union and Losson roads in Cheektowaga. Checkers is due to open early next year.
The site will be Checker's first major outlet, although Delaware North Cos. has a Checker's location in the Buffalo Niagara International Airport food court.
• The Vitamin Shoppe has agreed to open in Benderson's Eastgate Plaza on Transit Road in Clarence in next year's first quarter.
