Any person who visits the Midway Square shopping center in Chicago will find an assortment of businesses from retailers like Discovery, GameStop, and Family Dollar to the financial service JPMorgan Chase and restaurants with menus ranging from sub sandwiches to tacos! The diversity among this batch of tenants is unparalleled, and the most recent addition to the bunch, Scrub Depot, means that this center will extend further into the medical apparel industry serving and attracting an even wider audience.
The owner of Scrub Depot initially began his venture into medical apparel and accessories when he opened his first “Scrubs” brick-and-mortar location in the Illinois Medical District of Chicago. This location quickly became a favored destination for medical workers, and the popularity of the store and high demand for scrubs apparel made it evident that an additional location was necessary. The Scrub Depot owner decided the best course of action would be to seek a new location for expansion. An exciting opportunity for any business owner, but a daunting feat to find a new location with a similar demographic, the desired interior layout, and featuring high visibility and foot traffic.
After searching for the perfect new location and space, Matanky Realty Group broker Brandon Nieves facilitated a deal between Midway Square landlord and the Scrub Depot owner in Spring of 2023, resulting in a mutually beneficial deal for both parties. Scrub Depot took over the former Foot Locker space and transformed it into two separate parts, customizing his space to make his business operations more conducive to his needs.
Torres now has a perfect space for his second Scrub Depot location, but equally as important, this store is located on a bustling street in the southwest Chicago neighborhood of Archer Heights. The visibility is great, the foot traffic is booming, and the surrounding demographics are exactly what Torres sought. Congrats to both Midway Square on their fantastic new tenant, and Scrub Depot for the opening of his second Scrub Depot location in Illinois! May you find success in your new business endeavor!
