In addition to the new Publix and Pooler Stadium Cinemas 12, the 65,200-sq.-ft. Phase I of Pooler Marketplace is 93% leased and includes Seasons of Japan restaurant; AT&T; Little Caesar’s Pizza; Great Clips; David’s Dry Cleaners; Lovin’ Spoons Frozen Yogurt; Spataneous, UPS Store; and Beverage World.
