Five Below to Open in the Former Walgreens Space at Southside Marketplace

| January 9, 2023 | 0 Comments

Last year it was announced that Five Below would open at Southside Marketplace in Riverside/Locust Point, but a location was never disclosed by shopping center owner Regency Centers. But, now its official: Five Below will be replacing the recently-closed 9,200 sq. ft. Walgreens as Five Below is listed on Regency Centers’ website in Walgreens’ former Suite 26.

Construction is currently underway on the future Five Below space. Regency Centers did not reply to requests for comments on the store’s opening date.

Five Below is a toy and accessory store where most items are $5 or less. Five Below was started in Philadelphia and has more than 1,000 locations, including one in Canton.

This is the latest change at Southside Marketplace. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty closed at the end of last year in a 6,600 sq. ft. space and Southside Marketplace Cleaners left its 1,500 sq. ft. space in recent weeks as it relocated to McHenry Row and changed its name to McHenry Row Cleaners. Giant recently replaced Shoppers, and Quickway Japanese Hibachi will open at the shopping center in the coming months.

Reflex Functional Fitness relocated last year to Silo Point and PetValu closed in 2020. Both spaces remain vacant. There are now six total vacancies at Southside Marketplace.
