City of Tracy Promotes Opportunities at Global Real Estate Trade Show

Health food grocers targeted

Location: Tracy, Ca

The City of Tracy’s Economic Development staff attended the world’s largest global gathering of retail real estate professionals at the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) trade show in Las Vegas from May 20-23, 2018. The City of Tracy uses this forum to promote Tracy as the premier destination for expansion opportunities in the Central Valley.

“Tracy’s City Council and Economic Development team are strongly committed to providing our community with a diverse retail mix. Having the highest median income and being the second largest city in San Joaquin County makes Tracy an attractive location for retail expansion. We are very aggressive in our efforts to attract highly desired retailers,” stated Shelley Burcham, Economic Development Manager.

During the recent ICSS trade show, Economic Development staff met with industry professionals representing the following retailers: Sprouts Farmers Market, Whole Foods, Planet Fitness, Burlington Coat Factory, Farmer Boys Restaurant, Lowes, Top Golf, Rockin’ Jump, Sky Zone, Circus Trix, Nordstrom Rack, and Hobby Lobby.

Tracy residents have also communicated an overwhelming desire for healthier, organic grocery options. Within the previous 90 days, the City has presented market opportunities to Sprouts Farmers Market, Aldi Market, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s. Sprouts Farmers Market has expressed high interest in opening a store in Tracy and staff is currently partnering with them in their site selection process. Aldi Market has indicated an interest in opening a Tracy location in the future as the company moves further north. Whole Foods has confirmed a strategy to move towards Tracy and the Central Valley eventually, but are evaluating success in their East Bay stores before committing to further expansion. Trader Joe’s evaluates new opportunity sites annually. City staff has communicated that should they include a Central Valley location in their expansion schedule, Tracy would offer a compelling proposal for development in our community.

Staff also met with executives from Brookfield Properties (owner of West Valley Mall), Phillips Edison (owner of Raley’s Center), Kitchell Development (Raley’s Center Phase II Developer), and potential new retail developers considering locations in south Tracy, Armstrong Development and Fountainhead Development.

With significant growth in all industry sectors, Tracy is a compelling destination for all retail, restaurant, hospitality, and entertainment companies looking to expand into the Central Valley.
