Stirling Properties Officially Announces Sam’s Club is Coming to River Chase

River Chase Sams MapCOVINGTON, Louisiana —- (AUGUST 16, 2011) Stirling Properties, the developer of River Chase, officially announces that Sam’s Club is coming to River Chase Shopping Center, the largest open-air retail center in St. Tammany Parish.  Sam’s Club closed today on the purchase of a 16.58 acre site for the development of a new, 136,000 square foot store at River Chase.  Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the parent company for Sam’s Club, has committed to build their top of the line prototype building at the River Chase site, which will not resemble any other Sam’s Club in Louisiana.

This new Sam’s Club will be the only one in western St. Tammany and construction on the predominantly stone and brick facade will begin soon as Sam’s has already obtained all the necessary permits to begin.  The anticipated opening is scheduled for fall 2012 and is expected to provide 100+ jobs for the area.

For more information about the Sam’s Club deal or River Chase development contact Townsend Underhill, Vice President of Development for Stirling Properties, at or by phone at (985)-246-3785.

    The deal today is a product of over a year of negotiations and coordination. In the Wal-Mart world this is a quick closing but is a huge milestone for both River Chase and Western St. Tammany Parish. Wal-Mart’s purchase of 16.58 acres at River Chase, to build a Sam’s Club, solidifies a prominent anchor to the next phase of the project with a retailer that appeals to the Covington / Mandeville shopper. Sam’s Club intends to start construction in the next 60 days bringing significant economic impact to Western St. Tammany Parish in the form of 100+ jobs and high anticipated sales figures.

    In addition to Sam’s Club, Stirling is currently under construction with a 50,000 s.f. expansion of the existing shopping center, Favrot and Shane is well underway with the Brewtser Commons apartment project with the first units opening for occupancy in October, and the Holiday Inn developers will be breaking ground in the next 60 days on their hotel site. More development activity at River Chase will be announced in the coming months, so stay tuned.
