National chains moving in on Barre-Montpelier Road

BERLIN — The redevelopment of a Barre-Montpelier Road strip mall is coming into sharper focus as two chain stores have sought regulatory approval to open in the complex that is anchored by Price Chopper supermarket.

One — Petco — would be new to Berlin and central Vermont, while the other — Staples — is planning to move from Paine Turnpike to the Barre-Montpelier Road.

Petco has long been rumored as a potential tenant for some of the remaining space in a shopping center that added TJ Maxx nearly two years ago as part of a redevelopment that involved a major expansion of Price Chopper and the relocation and modest expansion of The Dollar Tree.
