Floor & Decor, a multi-channel specialty retailer of hard surface flooring and accessories, Wednesday selected North Plaza Shopping Center in Parkville as the site for its first location in the greater Baltimore metropolitan region.
The Atlanta-based company, which operates nearly 160 stores across 31 states, has signed a lease with Continental Realty Corporation (CRC) for 85,794 square feet of space in the 340,000-square-foot retail center, at 8980 Waltham Woods Road.
Floor & Decor intends to employ more than 60 full- and part-time workers in the space formerly occupied by Kmart and is planning a mid-2022 opening. The lease brings North Plaza Shopping Center to 100% occupancy. Blake Dickinson and Cherene Keenan of Continental Realty Corporation represented the landlord and John Meyer and Brian Finkelstein of KLNB represented the tenant in this transaction.
This Parkville store represents the second Maryland location for Floor & Decor, which also operates a store in Gaithersburg.
Floor & Decor offers tile, wood, stone, laminate and vinyl flooring materials, as well as related tools and accessories. The retailer utilizes a warehouse-format that averages approximately 80,000 square feet of space and enables the instant availability of a large inventory of products suitable for kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor areas. The company also stocks decoratives and fixtures, including backsplashes, vanities and vanity tops, shower doors, sinks and shower doors. The store, which also provides installation services, is suitable for general contractors and consumers.
