Last summer, the evolving Delta Shores shopping complex was being billed as a welcome retail boost to the south Sacramento area.
In September, the first of a projected 70 stores and restaurants started going into the massive, 1 million-square-foot “power center” along Interstate 5 at the Cosumnes River Boulevard interchange. The pace has picked up since then.
A flurry of arrivals popped up since the dawn of 2018, including the Jan. 26 opening of a 170,000-square-foot RC Willey home furnishings store at 8340 Delta Shores Circle South. It employs about 150 and is one of only a dozen “full-service” stores in the Utah-based chain.
The previous week, Comcast opened a new Xfinity store, a 5,052-square-foot suite with 15 employees.
