Best Buy in the Waterfront in Homestead to close
There will be no Black Friday commotion at the Best Buy in the Waterfront in Homestead.
The store is scheduled to close before the biggest shopping day of the year.
“We had anticipated Best Buy’s announcement that they are leaving our center with an expected close date of November 2,” according to a statement from the Waterfront’s public relations firm WordWrite. “Our plan is to continue the transformation of The Waterfront by replacing Best Buy with a more relevant, exciting concept that’s more in line with our vision for the future.”
The news release points out “several exciting developments happening at our center.”
The changes include a 250-unit luxury apartment complex that is currently in the works on the Mitchell’s Fish Market property. Mitchell’s is open and taking reservations for holiday bookings. In August, it was announced that Siemens and Commonwealth Charter Academy will soon occupy the former Macy’s space, completing an office hub called The Waterfront Technology Center. The center will bring more than 500 full-time employees to The Waterfront, WordWrite said.
