Brookfield retail takes another hit

Circuit City will be closing their Brookfield location according to the MJS retail reporter.

This will create a second large retail hole for the Continental Properties complex called Fountain Square. La-z-Boy left an empty space some time ago.

Does it matter to you? Yep. Taxes on these complexes are figured on occupancy. This one happens to be in that TIF district the mayor created to save Brookfield.

Cha ching.


  1. I did not know that Circuit City was in Fountain Square. Last time I was in there, it was near K Mart. Circuit City is going through bankruptcy, that’s been in the news for some time.

  2. The old CC location is a Babies R Us I think.

  3. Yep…it sure is!
