SEEKONK, MA-Ann & Hope, the struggling Cumberland, RI-based discount department store chain, has leased 42,000 sf of space here in the Towne Centre shopping plaza. The chain plans to open three outlet stores in the space–Ann & Hope Garden Outlet, Smart Buy Outlet, and Curtain & Bath Outlet–in an effort to revitalize its brand in an increasingly tight discount retail market.

“They decided to reposition themselves because of stores like Target and Kohls,” Aidan Murray, leasing broker for the Grossman Companies, tells GlobeSt.com. The Grossman Companies redeveloped the 108,000-sf plaza, which it acquired as a speculative purchase over a year ago. Price Rite Supermarket is the plaza’s other anchor tenant, with 33,000 sf, and other tenants include the U. S. Post Office, Compass Bank and Family Dollar, a national discount chain. About 23,000 sf are still available.

The plaza is located on 14.7 acres at the intersection of Route 44 and Rte. 114A here about a quarter mile from the Rhode Island border.
