FARMINGTON – The Station Park shopping center already brought big changes for Davis County shoppers, and a gaggle of new stores are slated to open soon, according to CenterCal, the company that owns and operates the development.
The new center has already added a movie theatre, show fountain, playground and housing, and is planning a full-service gym and a150-room boutique-style hotel.
It will all be done by next spring or summer, said Station Park General Manager Debby LaMotte. She spoke before a gathering of the Davis Chamber of Commerce in mid-June.
CenterCal bought the property in 2006, but the project didn’t take off until the grocer Harmon’s decided to become an anchor tenant, LaMotte said.
Now, all the biggest stores are open for business and all the space for them is leased, LaMotte said.
Janette Smith, of Fruit Heights, sees at least two movies at Station Park a month, she said.
“We don’t have to get on the freeway to get in, it’s just right there,” she said. “I don’t know what store we haven’t been to.”
Last week, Smith’s husband was so excited to show a relative the new development that he drove the whole family all around the parking lot to see the different sections, she said.
Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn has only good things to say about the center, and believes it does more than keep Davis County shoppers spending close to home.
“I think it’s done a phenomenal job at bringing folks inside Davis County, and it’s bringing in people outside of Davis County,” he said. “The beautiful thing is the various modes by which you can get there It’s really turning into a tremendous asset and destination for Davis County.”
GoLite and Orange Leaf opened their doors late last week.
