Kimco Realty has signed Las Montañas Supermarket to 23,000 square feet at its Creekside Center shopping center in Hayward, California

Kimco Signs Mexican Grocery Chain to Hayward Shopping Center

Kimco Realty said its Creekside Center, an 80,000-square-foot open-air shopping center in Hayward, soon will house Las Montañas Supermarket, a family owned and operated grocery store with Mexican foods and specialty grocery items. The new 23,334-square-foot grocer is expected to open on the northwest side of the shopping center in late summer.  

Additionally, Creekside Center has also undergone a cosmetic transformation that includes the addition of a new façade, metal canopies, a new pylon sign, monument signs and repainting, each designed to give the center a more contemproary look. 

“One of our top priorities at Kimco is to match best-in-class retailers with the right shoppers in top locations, something we’ve certainly achieved at Creekside, where nearly one-third of the center’s target market includes Latino households that will now have a grocer dedicated to their wants and needs right in their backyard,” said Brian Alt, Kimco senior director of real estate.
