The property is located in the Willowood Subdivision, an elite Oakland County Subdivision nested in the heart of Rochester Hills. Two of the nearby grocery stores to the Willowood Subdivision are Kroger and Whole Foods Market.
Located 0.9 mile via Walton Boulevard, Kroger is the country’s largest supermarket chain by revenue. Kroger uses a three-tiered private label marketing strategy. One private brand emphasizes no-frills products at the lowest possible price, another is intended to be comparable to leading national brands but a better value, and the third is a premium–often organic–brand. Kroger has several sections that grocery shoppers adore, such as Adult Beverage where cocktails, craft beer and great wines are sold, Deli and Bakery where one can find all party platters needs, cakes and Murray's Cheese. Kroger also has Fresh Produce section, Meat and Seafood section, and Natural Foods section. Shoppers prefer Kroger for a lot of reasons but primarily because of the store formats that include supermarkets, superstores, department stores, convenience stores, and mall jewelry stores.
Located 1.8 miles via Walton Boulevard, Whole Foods Market Rochester Hills is a full service, all-natural and organic grocery store, conveniently located at The Village of Rochester Hills on Walton Boulevard just east of Adams Road. This is a store unique in character, philosophy and spirit. For the ones who are curious or unfamiliar with any of the products, the friendly team members provide personalized customer service. They also offer interactive store tours (for adults and children), cooking classes in the fully equipped cooking classroom, and are always happy to help plan a special event. Whole Foods Market Rochester Hills is a one stop shop for all the best things.
Nearby restaurants and fast food chains are just 0.5 mile walking distance, such as, Subway, Rochester Diner and Grill, Bruegger's Bagel, Take Sushi Japanese Restaurant, Pizza Hut, Wendy's, and Lucky's Prime Time.
Rochester Hills doesn't have a downtown, but it has retail hotspots and plenty of activity. Every day, 50,000 vehicles travel Rochester Hills' main thoroughfare, Rochester Road, between M-59 and Auburn Road. That kind of market data is helping drive new construction and redevelopment in the area.
One such development is Rochester & Auburn Shoppe's. The 32,000- square-foot development is on the site of Meadowbrook Dodge, which closed during the recession and became an empty-lot eyesore. It now has one of the highest rental rates in the city, at $38 to $44 per square foot, and it's fully leased. Starbucks Coffee Co. and Qdoba have moved in.
Rochester Hills focuses on its hubs, these include:
Northeast. The corner of Rochester and Tienken, which includes a Papa Joe's Gourmet Market & Catering on the northwest corner and City Walk Plaza on the southeast corner, anchored by the Bar Louie restaurant for just under four years.
Hampton Village Centre. The 455,000-square-foot development at Rochester and Auburn roads is anchored by Target and Best Buy. It could see some redevelopment in the next few years, city officials said, although no specific plans have been presented.
Hampton Plaza. The nine-store plaza, at Rochester and Hamlin roads, stood nearly empty for years. Now it's nearly full, with Dunham's Sports moving in this year and a Fresh Thyme Farmers Market set to open this summer (see box, above right).
The Village of Rochester Hills. The Village, at Walton Boulevard and North Adams Road, has more than 50 stores, restaurants and services, including a Whole Foods Market. Its occupancy rate is 90 percent.
