Two new businesses will be moving into storefronts in the Interstate 205 retail area by the end of the year.

Ulta Beauty plans to open in the 10,000-square-foot property at 2475 N. Naglee Road, adjacent to PetSmart in the Tracy Pavilion Shopping Center on the corner of Grant Line and Naglee roads.

The cosmetics and fragrance store will also feature a full-service salon when it opens some time by the end of June, according to Amie Mendes, an economic development analyst for the city of Tracy.

HomeGoods, a high-end home fashion discounter, has signed a lease to occupy the 24,000-square-foot space at 2960 W. Grant Line Road — which was recently vacated by Staples.

Opening day is scheduled for some time in September or October.

“We’ve seen a spike in retail activity in Tracy over the past year with a re-tenanting of several key locations,” Mendes stated in a recent press release. “I’m confident that shoppers from Tracy and the surrounding region will be thrilled with both of these retailers.”

Both companies also have outlets in Stockton.

backinblack, have you ever shopped there? Sounds like you haven't. TJ's has a variety of things not typically found elsewhere, such as, for St. Patrick Day aficionados, corned beef without nitrates. The home of two-buck Chuck. There might even be some organic stuff there.

Not that you wrong in your assessment ("I don't need it.") But it does confirm TJ's view of Tracy demographics.

I don't get the Trader Joe's thing. I remember years ago when they opened one in Fremont, me and some other guy's from the gym went to check it out and ended up being very disappointed. Bunch of garbage as far as we were concerned.

I guess if people feel like they're getting healthier products at TJ's then more power to them but I get all I need between GNC, Winco, & Save Mart, and oh yea, I have a very healthy diet. The key is know what you're eating, what it does for your body, and when being in touch with daily allowences read labels so you can chart what you are putting in your body - every day. Too much temptation to buy garbage when at stores like Winco? one word, discipline.

People can shop all they want at a place such as TJ's but if one does not work out or get some form of excerise the whole eating healthy thing is just an illusion as far as I'm concerned.

Low sodium, low fat, low cholesterol, high fiber, high potassium, high protein, moderate carbs & calories, there's what people should shoot for.

Tracy is a small town. Ask the guys and gals at Carnegie if MeasureA was the cats meow. You call housing permits on land previously designated by the state of California, as an off road motorcycle park, good for Tracy business? BS!

Ask former leiutenant governor John Garamendi. Was he in Tracy promoting it or was he totally clueless?

Two pretty decent size commercial buildings get what sounds like solid tenants, hmmm, I'd like to hear how much Measure A entered the thinking of the decision makers at HomeGoods & Ulta Beauty.

Measure A is a dinosaur that never accomplished anything. It really doesn't matter. You moved here in 2003, by that time Measure A was only being used as a political tool, to serve political interests of people who do not live here anymore. Measure A never actually limited RGA's to 750 or 650. I don't think Measure A accomplished anything else than to put question marks in the minds of people asking why it's there.

How about a Trader Joe's or Whole foods. Raley's has great produce and a decent section for whole foods. It would be nice to get another store for more whole and less processed foods.

So would I but ya need ta convince th people who own an operate Trader Joe's it would be in thair best financial interests ta engage in such an enterprise. So far, every time I have contacted em, thair reply is th demographics of Tracy ain't right for thair operation. Change that an they'll probably have no problem settin up shop in Tracy.
