Former Kmart plaza in Port Charlotte acquiring Whole Wine, Kay Jewelers

The Port Charlotte Marketplace is adding a Total Wine & More and Kay Jewelers.

A Port Charlotte plaza once anchored by a Kmart is getting two new tenants – a main anchor and a retail outlet relocation from the nearby mall.

Port Charlotte Marketplace, at the intersection of Tamiami Path and Cochran Boulevard, is introducing a 28,850-square-foot Full Wine & More in its next-most significant anchor room, and a 2,000-square-foot Kay Jewelers retail retail outlet in a space that fronts Cochran. 

With these new tenants, the retail middle will be just about 100% leased, in accordance to a press release from its Tennessee-based home proprietor, GBT Realty Corporation. The only remaining spots at the Market are two 1,600-square-foot areas. 

Overall Wine is filling the former Kmart space that was most lately leased to Lucky’s Current market. Lucky’s, based mostly in Colorado, signed a lease with GBT in 2018 but sooner or later submitted for bankruptcy and closed most of its outlets after its main trader, Kroger, backed out in 2019.
