At Home, a Texas-based big box home decor retailer, has plans to open in Geneva in March, according to the broker.

The superstore signed a 104,782-square-foot lease at Fabyan Crossing, taking the place of Gander Mountain, Mid-America officials said Monday.


This will be the company's fourth location in Illinois, joining stores in Schaumburg, Aurora and O'Fallon.

The store has been vacant since August when Gander Mountain declared bankruptcy last spring. Several area Gander Mountain retailers reopened, but the outdoors retailer said Geneva's store was on the underperforming list.

The home decor superstore, offers more than 50,000 products from sofas, dining sets, mattresses and patio furniture to lamps, pillows, kitchenware, rugs and more. The company operates 143 stores in 33 states.

At Home has plans for continued growth, according to its website. Net sales this year are projected at jump from $939 million to $944 million, representing annual growth of 23 percent.

The new store in Geneva joins other national retailers in the shopping center including Best Buy, Burlington Coat Factory, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market and O'Reilly Auto Parts.

Mid-America Principal Dick Spinell and Vice President Paige Schiesser represented the landlord in the transaction. Adam Cody with JLL represented the tenant.
