ATLANTA-Henry County shoppers shortly won’t have to trudge to neighboring counties for good buys. They’ll have them in their own backyard at the McDonough Towne Center, a planned 100-acre, 650,000-sf shopping center being developed by the Sembler Co. of St. Petersburg, FL just off Interstate 75 at Jonesboro Road.

Home Depot already has broken ground on one of nine outparcels for a home improvement outlet. The mall will be anchored by a SuperTarget store. Other big-box tenants, currently negotitating for space, are Belk’s department store, Linens & Things, Marshall’s, Michael’s, an arts and crafts supply store, Office Max, Old Navy and PetsMart.

Henry County political and civic leaders have been behind the project which is expected to create 1,200 jobs and generate sales tax revenues for the county.
