An exciting mix of new shopping and dining options will make its debut in Dawsonville. PetSmart, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, and several new retailers will join the thriving Publix-anchored Dawson Crossroads shopping center this spring.

PetSmart will serve as the center’s 18,000 SF junior anchor, giving the Dawsonville community an expanded selection of not only pet supplies but services. “PetSmart is the country’s largest pet retailer and service provider,” said John Brozovic, a Halpern Regional Leasing Director. “The Dawsonville store features full-service grooming in addition to expert training services.”

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Murphy Oil will also join the center in outparcels facing Georgia 400, neighboring a Chili’s restaurant, Aspen Dental, and AT&T. Murphy Oil will boast 12 pumps and a 1,200 SF convenience store. In a footprint of 3,000 SF, the national fast-casual chain Freddy’s will serve traditional American fare with a unique twist on the burger-and-fries genre that uses steak in its burgers while offering a selection of frozen custards.

Newly-signed tenants The Joint Chiropractic, Tripp & Company Jewelers, the dual-branded Marble Slab Creamery and American Cookie Company, Fit Body Bootcamp, Shanel Nichole Hair Studio, and fashion retailers Ten Point Boutique and Blush Ivey Boutique, will join an already-flourishing roster of tenants that includes Brooklyn Joe’s Pizza Pasta & Grill, La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant, Lee Nails, Great Clips, Totally Running, and Top Cleaners.

Halpern is currently in negotiations with several other national and local tenants. Medical, retail, and restaurant users still have an opportunity to locate their businesses at Dawson Crossroads. The center, which is well-positioned across the street from the North Georgia Premium Outlets and a Walmart Supercenter, is located on the southeast corner of GA 400 and Dawson Forest Road at a high-traffic intersection that sees nearly 33,000 vehicles per day.

Dawson Crossroads is located at 145 Forest Boulevard in Dawsonville, Ga.
