MAB American reaches milestone at Waynesville Pavilion with grand opening of anchor tenant

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. – February 8, 2019 – MAB American Management, LLC (MAB), the developer of Waynesville Pavilion, will celebrate a major milestone next Wednesday, February 13 when its anchor tenant, Publix, officially opens its doors to the public. Featuring more than 57,000 square feet of total commercial retail space, the shopping center is expected to create more than 200 jobs upon completion.

“For me personally, I have vacationed in Haywood County and Waynesville for more than three decades, so I have witnessed firsthand the area’s continued focus on growth,” said John Argo, President of MAB American Management, LLC. “The development of Waynesville Pavilion is a significant step in the right direction, and the opening of Publix gives us the opportunity to introduce our neighbors to this project. We look forward to completing the entire shopping center later this year and are eager to welcome additional tenants as we move forward with development.”

Situated at the intersection of two primary arteries, US 276 and Smokey Mountain Expressway, Waynesville Pavilion will not only feature the 49,000-square-foot Publix, but also other retail tenants including a nail salon. Additional tenants will be confirmed later this year.
