Crazy Boss Finds Fontana a Big Draw for Big Discounts
Crazy Boss Big Discount Store recently signed a new lease for a 103,157-square-foot anchor space (formerly Kmart) at 17099 Valley Blvd. in Fontana, CA. The store is opening soon in the 285,000-square-foot freeway-adjacent Vineyard Valley Center.
The discount store will be prominently featured on the freeway pylon and shopping center monument signage. Crazy Boss will join Food 4 Less, Big Lots, dd’s Discounts and several other shops, restaurants and services at the daily needs community center.
The Fontana store will be its eighth location. The chain features “crazy low prices” on popular brands starting as low as $1 on a wide variety of merchandise including clothing, accessories, shoes, beauty, toys and home decor.
Paul Galmarini of Progressive Real Estate Partners and Justin Altemus of The Altemus Company co-listed the property and represented the landlord in the transaction. Galmarini also represented Crazy Boss.
“The excellent discount retailer co-tenancy, outstanding freeway visibility and strong demographics made this a very attractive location for Crazy Boss to expand,” says Galmarini. “Not only will the local community have a fun new place to shop, it’s also great news for the center gaining a new anchor tenant that will draw more traffic to the property.”
