VALLEY FORGE SHOPPING CENTER
Pigeon Forge, TN
In May 2016, Sevier County became home to a 45,600 square-foot Publix Super Market. The store will serve as the anchor tenant of Valley Forge Shopping Center, located at the intersection of Wears Valley Road and the Parkway in Pigeon Forge (US-321 and US-441).
Developers broke ground at the five-acre Valley Forge Shopping Center site in early 2015. In addition to Publix, the development will lease to other retail tenants, occupying an additional 10,000 square feet.
Knoxville-based development team CHM, LLC is spearheading the project. They have worked with the Florida-based retail giant on other projects in the area, including the redevelopment of Northshore Town Center in West Knoxville, as well as University Commons, Knoxville’s first urban, vertical retail center located adjacent to the University of Tennessee campus. Publix operates more than 1,000 stores across six states in the Southeast.
Principal partners of CHM, LLC include Budd Cullom, Jim Harrison and Mike McGuffin. These three veteran developers bring many years of retail experience to this project. Collectively, they have developed more than 10 million square feet of retail projects throughout the Southeast featuring Publix, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kmart, Best Buy and many others.
