Whole Foods, T.J. Maxx to anchor new retail center in Cheshire

Officials with Florida-based Regency Centers announced the first two tenants of the complex’s retail portion, ending months of speculation. The retail portion of the complex, which will be a 152,000 square foot shopping center located near the intersection of Route 10 and I-691, will be know as Cheshire Crossing. Whole Foods currently has 11 stores in Connecticut and is nearing completion of another supermarket in Stamford. The Cheshire Whole Foods store is one of two in the development pipeline, with the other being proposed in Old Saybrook. Andrew Martelli, Cheshire’s director of economic development and grants, said Regency Centers officials have told the town they hope to have the new stores open by late 2025, in advance of the holiday season. Eric Davidson, a Regency Centers spokesman, said he expects both Whole Foods and T.J. Maxx to be open by the spring of 2026, with the remainder of retailers opening during a 12-month period after that.
