CHICAGO, IL (OCT. 19, 2016) – Englewood Construction, one of the country’s leading commercial construction firms, announced its retail group has completed the ground-up construction of a 120,690-square-foot Blain’s Farm & Fleet in Romeoville, Ill.

Located at 451 S. Weber Road, the store opened in October as the national retailer’s 37th location and its nearest to Chicago. Charlotte, N.C.-based Little Diversified Architectural Consulting was the project architect.
“As a national contractor, we pride ourselves on our ability to create a seamless experience for retailers as they expand their geographic footprint,” said William Di Santo, president of Lemont, Ill.-based Englewood Construction. “This project gives Farm & Fleet its first presence in Will County, enabling them to reach a new group of shoppers in Chicago’s popular southwest suburbs.”

Di Santo noted the Farm & Fleet project illustrates a trend in the retail sector of big box retailers opting for out-of-the-ground construction in new locations, allowing them to reimagine their physical space in order to enhance the brand experience for consumers.

 “This project is a prototype Farm & Fleet, so it’s an exciting opportunity for the brand to not only introduce a new store design, but also partner with Romeoville to develop this prime location into a vibrant retail corridor,” said Di Santo.
