2 retailers sign long-term leases at No. Brunswick center

Ulta Beauty and Sport Clips have signed leases at North Village Shopping Center in North Brunswick, according to managing and leasing agent Levin Management Corp.

Beauty products retailer Ulta Beauty signed for 13,000 square feet, while hair care franchise Sport Clips signed for 1,594 square feet, North Plainfield-based Levin said in a news release.

The commercial real estate services firm’s leasing representative Vanessa Fernandez arranged both long-term agreements at the 128,000-square-foot property along Route 1. David Szabo of BKR Lamar Retail Services represented Ulta, while David Townes of Cushman & Wakefield represented Sport Clips.

Trader Joe’s replaced Barnes & Noble as the anchor of the property in 2016.

“We recognized that carving out a portion of the Barnes & Noble space to accommodate a specialty grocer would better serve the needs of the surrounding community,” Levin President Matthew Harding said in a prepared statement. “We secured a lease with Trader Joe’s, and allocated the balance of the vacant space for additional retail units — at a time of strong demand for well-located, quality retail in the New Jersey marketplace.”
