Completion of the final details to put Petco and OfficeMax into Nugget Mall could be just around the corner.
Ted Tollefson of the mall’s management partners said they are working very closely with the two retail chains. While the leases still need to be signed, he said he is confident this will be done shortly.
Juneau Community Development Director Dale Pernula said the city issued a building permit for Petco. He said OfficeMax has submitted its plans and the department is now waiting for some additional information. He expects the final permit will be issued soon.
Tollefson said Staples had previously looked at Nugget Mall, but no deal could be reached.
Representatives for Petco and OfficeMax could not be reached for comment.
