NORTHBOROUGH – New businesses will soon be heading to Northborough Crossing.

According to Northborough officials, HomeGoods, Marshalls and Sierra will be coming to the mall.

Town Administrator John Coderre mentioned the new businesses during the Board of Selectmen’s tax classification hearing on Nov. 21.

“We’ve seen turnover [at Northborough Crossing], and we’ve actually seen a lot of reuse,” Coderre said. “…We’ve been able to maintain occupancy up in the main part of the mall – that’s very positive for us.”

According to Inspector of Buildings and Zoning Enforcement Officer Bob Frederico, the former Toys-R-Us will be divided into two. In that location, there will soon be a HomeGoods and Marshalls.

Currently, there is a HomeGoods in Westborough, and there’s a Marshalls located in both Marlborough and Westborough. Frederico noted that both stores were under construction with plans to open in the spring.

Additionally, a few spaces to the left of the T.J. Maxx will be the home of Sierra, which is an outdoor recreation store. According to its website, there are also Sierra locations in Framingham and Newton.

“Sierra Trading is currently in planning and permitting stages,” Frederico said.

Sierra, HomeGoods and T.J. Maxx are all TJX Companies along with HomeSense, which is also located in Northborough Crossing.

According to Coderre’s presentation, Northborough Crossing is the top taxpayer in the town with a property value of $104.5 million and proposed fiscal year 2023 tax of $1.5 million.

Also at the top five of Northborough’s taxpayers were Avalon Bay, Amazon, Iron Mountain and FedEx SmartPost.

Northborough Crossing is located off Route 20, and these new businesses will join several other businesses and restaurants, including Wegmans, BJs Wholesale Club, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Old Navy, Kohl’s and PetSmart.
