Calexico Trying To Move Quick On Vacant Retails Stores

July 31, 2018


  Asked if there are any plans find an occupant for the recently closed and now vacant J.C. Penney building downtown on Second Street, city Economic Development Director Miguel Figueroa said it is a matter under discussion. The city is discussing prospects with the owners of that building and the vacant Toys R Us store on Highway 111 that also recently closed.


  With the J.C. Penney location there is a lease between the property owner and the J.C. Penney company that needs to be honored, Figueroa said. The city has lined up parties that can come in and occupy the building, however, he said the ultimate outcome is up to the property owners.


  For the former Toys R Us building Figueroa revealed two concerns have expressed interest in occupying it, but the city will recommend the one that brings in a higher level of revenue. The building has a bond holder and as soon the bond is released, the city will work to make sure it has an occupant, he said.
