Chop’T to open at New Gotham residential building in Manhattan
New York City Gotham Organization, a New York City-based owner, builder and developer, said it has signed a retail tenant at its New Gotham residential building on West 42nd Street.
Chop’t Creative Salad Co. will open a salad restaurant in 2011, to join its already opened commissary in the space.
Chop’t signed a 10-year lease with the option to renew for an additional five years. The 3,750-sq.-ft. ground floor retail space offers frontage on 42nd Street and access to neighboring residences as well as retailers including CVS and The Food Emporium.
Marketside site gets new branding
BENTONVILLE, Ark. Walmart’s Marketside Web site has been made over to promote the retailer’s line of prepared food.
The site, www.marketside.com, once devoted to Walmart’s pilot chain of Marketside food stores that opened in Phoenix around this time last year, is now being used to inform visitors about its Marketside-branded line of products and to solicit feedback from them.
Though there is no indication of whether the Web site change had anything to do with the performance of the Marketside stores, the site does feature a new Marketside logo, implying that some sort of re-branding is underway.
