A plan to build a BJ’s Wholesale Club store in Mt. Juliet was approved Thursday by the city’s planning commission.
BJ’s Wholesale Club is a membership store headquartered in Westborough, Massachusetts. BJ’s Wholesale Club has 224 stores in 17 states.
Plans are to build a 104,353 square foot store at Adams Lane in Mt. Juliet, in an approved mixed-use development named Providence Central.
A tire center just over 3,400 square feet that will be connected to the main building with its own entrance and a separate 214 square foot service station on the property are also part of the plans.
Several traffic improvements are conditions for development.
Mt. Juliet City and Planning Commissioner Scott Hefner has known BJ’s Wholesale Club from his time in Florida. Hefner described BJ’s Wholesale Club as “the same concept” as Sam’s Club or Costco.
Providence Central Apartments, road works are progressing: Enclave in Providence, an approved 296-unit apartment complex that is part of the Providence Central development is well underway.
The first units are expected to be completed in early 2023 and the entire complex is expected to be completed in early 2024, Cumberland Councilor Mike Murphy said. Cumberland Advisors represents the family that controls the western portion of Providence Central.
The project approval includes a developer-funded extension of Providence Parkway from nearby Creekside at Providence apartments to Central Pike, just south of Interstate 40.
Murphy expects the road to be completed in early April.
Dunkin’ Donuts is about to open at Charlie’s Place: Work is underway on two buildings that are part of the development where The Incredible Christmas Place opened.
Dunkin’ Donuts and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice will occupy the majority of the second building with about 900 square feet remaining, owner Judd Sellars said.
Sellars estimates Dunkin’ Donuts and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice could open around June.
There are discussions with a boutique to use about 1,000 square feet of the third building, which would leave about 2,000 square feet, Sellars said.
Charlie’s Place is now the name of the commercial development named in honor of Charlie Daniels.
The Incredible Christmas Place was the first store to open in Charlie’s Place in 2021.
Third Coast Salt Day Spa: Work is underway on a new building on Sunset Drive, just west of North Mt. Juliet Road, where the Third Coast Salt Day Spa will open.
Third Coast Salt Day Spa is now located in the Smoothie King building further south on North Mt. Juliet Road.
The future building will have an area of 5,000 square feet. The Third Coast Salt Day Spa will occupy approximately 3,500 square feet, with the remainder of the space to be leased to an out-of-Texas wellness company.
Shari Arnold, owner of Third Coast Salt Day Spa, is considering the weather to keep the current 1,100 square foot space in the Smoothie King building as a satellite location.
The new building will expand Third Coast Salt Day Spa from one massage room to three massage rooms and from two skin care rooms to five skin care rooms. Cryotherapy will also be offered and the new location will have a wet spa for women and a wet spa for men, Arnold said.
Late spring or early summer is the target date for finishing the new building.
