LITTLETON, CO-At a time of layoffs, cutbacks and a softening local company, the developers of the 300,000-sf Aspen Grove Lifestyle Center has some good news — it plans to generate 2,000 new jobs. The center, a development by Poag & McEwen Lifestyle Centers and Developers Diversified Realty Corp., is scheduled to open this fall next to a light rail stop at Santa Fe Drive and Mineral Avenue.

To get the word out on the jobs, Aspen Grove’s marketing director Jennifer Stafford will be mailing an employment newsletter weekly to Arapahoe Community College, the City of Littleton and area high schools. The newsletter will contain ongoing job openings for management level to part-time and seasonal sales staff for Aspen Grove retailers.

“We think the newsletter will be a convenient way for people interested in working for Aspen Grove’s new retailers and restaurants to find information, and find the right job opportunity,” Stafford says. “It also assists our retailers in generating staffing heads.”

Other Lifestyle Centers by Poag & McEwen include the Deer Park Town Center, in Deer Park, IL; The Shops of Saddle Creek, in Germantown, TN; and the Town Center Plaza in Leawood, KS.

Developers Diversified Realty owns and manages 265 shopping centers in 41 states.
