Ocean State Job Lot coming to Nashua
Ocean State Job Lot is in the process of updating the interior of the former Bradlees discount department store at 300 Main St., according to Roger Houston, planning director for the city.
“This will be a great asset to that area,” Houston said. “This should serve as an anchor for the shopping plaza, and certainly will bring in more shoppers.”
Ocean State Job Lot previously received a building permit to begin interior renovations at the site. It was not necessary for the company to approach the Nashua City Planning Board since the building was already a permitted retail use, he said.
Ocean State Job Lot has more than 100 stores operating throughout New England.
“The floor was a little uneven. It was built on an old mill pond that was filled in, and there was settlement with the shopping plaza,” he said. “They are trying to stabilize the floor.”
The city’s building department is now working with Ocean State Job Lot as it continues interior renovations at the new Nashua facility, scheduling necessary inspections and preparing the store for its grand opening.
