This week The Laker reports that efforts are underway for a possible Kohl's department store next to Dillard's at The Shops at Wiregrass mall on SR 56 in Wesley Chapel. Years ago, a Kohl's was announced for the Cypress Creek Town Center to be built by the Richard E. Jacobs Group, but that mall never has been built. Nothing is confirmed at this time for the Wiregrass location, but this would be New Tampa's and Wesley Chapel's only Kohl's, saving shoppers a drive to Lutz or Brandon. (Kohl's has 1,067 stores in 49 states.)
Additionally, I have a report from one of this blog's readers (not confirmed) that RaceTrac purchased property at the BBD and SR 54 intersection across from Walgreen's.
