“There is an existing store at the 60 and Greenfield Road,”Pitts tells GlobeSt.com. “But Garden Ridge wantedto serve Tempe, Chandler and Ahwatukee. The new location at the 60and I-10 has that ability to reach those customers—it's asuper-regional draw.”

Pitts says finding such a large space on the I-10 was not aneasy task. “Over the past 10 years, only three big box spaces havebeen available directly on the I-10,” says Pitts. The location wasoriginally a JC Penney Home Store. “This exciting as well becauseit is the first At Home store that wasn't a converted Garden Ridgelocation.”
