Bi-Lo Grocery Store in Chester Sold


TNP Strategic Retail Trust, Inc. (the “Company”), a public non-traded REIT that invests in grocery and drug-store anchored, multitenant necessity retail properties and other real estate–related assets, announced today the acquisition of a BI-LO grocery store, a 45,817 square foot freestanding building, located within the Chester Plaza Shopping Center in Chester, South Carolina.

Originally constructed in 1991, BI-LO remodeled and expanded the property by more than 15,000 square feet in 1999, adding a bakery, cafe and pharmacy. BI-LO will implement its “Clean and Bright” store modernization and upgrade program, spending approximately $1.5 million at the Chester location, including exterior paint, new signage, installing new wood flooring in the produce department and increasing marketing and coupon programs. These upgrades are anticipated to increase sales by approximately 20 to 25 percent. BI-LO has occupied this center for more than 19 years and has a long term lease in place through 2019 with options through 2039.
