The closed 28th Street Mega Mall will become the B2 Outlet store

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The former 28th Street Mega Mall has a new tenant with new plans to revive the retail space.

Dykhouse Construction, Inc. last week applied for a municipal permit to convert the facility on the southwest corner of 28th Street and Madison Avenue SE into a B2 Outlets store.

Updates include moving the restroom, adding a wall, installing new polished concrete flooring and painting the 76,000 square foot space. The construction work is expected to cost around $310,000, according to documents submitted to the City.

Duane Smith and his son Matt Smith founded B2 Outlet Stores in Hudsonville about eight years ago as a liquidated stock retailer that donates a portion of profits to nonprofits. Since 2014, B2 Factory Outlets has donated over $1 million to local and global initiatives, indicates the company’s website.

Since then, B2 Outlet Stores has 22 locations throughout Michigan and one in Illinois.

News 8 has contacted B2 Outlet Stores for comment on the project, but has not yet received a response.
