Potato Barn, a high-end furniture retailer with ties to Mesa and Gilbert, has recently broken ground on a $7.4 million, 100,000 square foot headquarters and warehouse for their retail chain. The new building is on 8.4 acres north of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport at 7104 E Ray Road, just East of Sossaman. The building will have 50,000 sq ft set aside for retail, with 30,000 sq ft for warehouse space and 20,000 sq ft for an outlet store.
Potato Barn is a family-owned Arizona furniture store featuring unique collection and one-of-a-kind pieces imported from around the world. Potato Barn will close the Gilbert store at 4900 E. Power Rd. and the Gilbert outlet store at 596 E. Germann Rd., as part of the consolidation.
“Sigma Contracting is proud to be working with Potato Barn and its construction management team, Streamline Development, to bring a new ground-up facility to the Southeast Valley,” said Catherine Frendahl, business development specialist at Sigma, who was involved in the land acquisition of the project.
“The City of Mesa has been extremely helpful in pushing this forward and expediting the process for our client. This will be Potato Barn’s largest facility to date. Sigma is thrilled for the owners.”
Perez McGee is the architect of record. Work is expected to be completed in January 2019.
“We are excited to be able to bring new products to our customers from this facility,” said Potato Barn owner Greg Bongiorno. “We have seen an extra push on new designs from our manufacturers. We would like to thank everyone involved since 2002 for putting this together and making it happen.”
