LOWE’S OPENS AT QUONSET GATEWAY
NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — The grand opening has been held for the new Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, located within The Shops at Quonset in North Kingstown. The retailer will occupy a 117,000-square-foot store and an adjacent garden center. Lowe’s is the second retailer to open in the open-air, mixed-use center, the first being Kohl’s. Both stores will serve as anchors for the development. Local grocery store Dave’s Marketplace is expected to open within the center this spring. At full build-out, The Shops at Quonset will include retail and restaurant space, second-floor office space and a hotel. It is part of the first phase of The Quonset Gateway, a 72.5-acre mixed-use development located at the entry to Quonset Business Park. The $144 million project is being developed by New Boston Fund and is being funded by the company’s Urban Strategy America Fund.
