The Fresh Market's future in Madison is now in doubt, as the company says it has "re-evaluated the timing of its new store opening announcements."
The company released the statement Friday, as it was initially planning to add a Madison location at the former site of Star Market at the North Madison Corners shopping center at the corner of US 72 and Wall Triana Highway. The center is already home to Marshalls, but it has lacked a tenant since the supermarket's departure years ago.
The property owner, Colliers International, still shows a rendering of The Fresh Market in a rendering of the site on its webpage. Colliers did not immediately return our request for comment.
A spokesperson with the City of Madison is not releasing many details about the 66,000 sq ft property, but the city does confirm that the "property owner is continuing to work with prospective tenants."
As far as when or if The Fresh Market will eventually open at the shopping centerm the company remains noncommittal on its future in Madison.
"The Fresh Market is continuously reviewing its investment priorities, which often results in shifting opening dates. As such, the company does not plan on projecting or speculating on specific store opening timing prior to construction start," the company said.
