HomeGoods intends to replace Bed Bath & Beyond at River City Marketplace in North Jacksonville as the city reviews a permit application for the store to build-out there.

MLM Construction Co. Inc. of Leasburg, North Carolina, is the contractor for the estimated $850,000 remodeling of the 23,186-square-foot space at 13221 City Station Drive.

Kirk F. Hobson-Garcia of Southwest Ranches, near Pembroke Pines, is the civil engineer.

Site plans by landlord RPT Realty show HomeGoods in the 25,000-square-foot space.

Bed Bath & Beyond stores closed in River City Marketplace and at 6001-24 Argyle Forest Blvd. in West Jacksonville. Those were part of the company’s 87 stores nationwide it announced Jan. 30 it would close.

The company has since liquidated under Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It had four additional stores in the area – three Bed Bath & Beyond locations and one buybuy Baby.

River City Marketplace comprises 580,661 square feet of space at 13221 City Center Blvd.

Homesense, one of The TJX Companies Inc. off-price retail banners, is expected to open in the former Stein Mart space in Riverplace Shopping Center in Mandarin. 

RPT Realty and Kimco Realty, both based in New York state, announced a merger agreement Aug. 28 for Kimco to buy RPT for about $2 billion in an all-stock transaction, combining two shopping center owners that together have six properties in Jacksonville.

The transaction is expected to close in early in 2024, subject to RPT shareholder approval and other customary closing conditions.
