KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – June 20, 2012 – As the first phase of the Northshore Town Center project launches this summer, the smaller retail shops surrounding Target and Publix are beginning to fill with new occupants. The large anchor tenants’ newest neighbors will include four area businesses, including Barre3, The Nail Spa, Froyoz and Fusion Tanning Studios.
“We’re thrilled to announce the first retailers to surround our anchor tenants in Northshore Town Center,” said Mike McGuffin, a partner with NMI, LLC. “This is an excellent location for any retailer to set-up shop. With Publix and Target as neighbors, the benefits will be huge for those who choose to surround them.”
Barre3 will be launching their second Knoxville location at Northshore Town Center. Founded in 2008, barre3 combines elements of ballet barre, yoga and Pilates, with an emphasis on posture and lengthening. Classes are designed to transform the body to one of equal balance, strength and flexibility.
“We are so excited to bring our second location of barre3 to Tennessee,” said co-owner Whitni Rolfes. “I just know people are going to fall in love with the workout and the community that we our building.”
Fusion Tanning Studios will be unveiling a never-before-seen interior at their new Northshore Town Center location. “This location will mark our tenth store opening in Knoxville and we are excited to share a fresh new look with our clients as soon as they walk through the door,” said Noel Russell, owner of Fusion Tanning Studios.
