Turlock residents can soon expect several new businesses, as Monte Vista Crossings begins construction on the second phase of development next month.

With the project’s construction set to break ground on Feb. 15, the now vacant 19-acre parcel will soon be home to a number of new businesses and retailers.

Businesses slated for Monte Vista Crossings South so far include: Dick’s Sporting Goods, a national sports retailer offering gear, equipment, apparel and footwear; Justice and Brothers , a ‘tween’ girls and boys clothing store, also selling backpacks and school supplies; Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores , one of the nation’s largest craft stores offering fabric, sewing, quilting, and other hobby supplies; Kirkland’s, a home décor chain retailer specializing in furnishings and gifts; Tilly’s, a popular surf and skate retailer offering apparel, equipment and sports-branded products; Sprint, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the nation, offering wireless services and cell phones; and Maurice’s, a retail chain focusing on women’s clothing, accessories and apparel.

“We’re very excited about the expansion at Monte Vista Crossings,” said Rebecca Hall of Hall Equities Group.

The 19-acre parcel set for Phase II of the Monte Vista Crossings project owned by Hall Equities Group is just south of the existing Kohl’s and Olive Garden, off of Countryside Drive.

There is a 7-acre north expansion area between Golden State Boulevard and Countryside that remains vacant and no plans have been announced for that area.

The Olive Garden, which opened in September 2012, was the most recent development project at Monte Vista Crossings.

Monte Vista Crossings is now leasing shop space for interested businesses. More information can be found by visiting
