A second set of 3 lots of Alewine frontage has been sold on Riverside Drive in Parker, this time to Beachcombers Ski & Sport, which will open next to Spankys RV & Marine on the main drag in town.
According to a press release by the La Paz Economic Development Corporation, which has been handling the development of the property bought by the Town of Parker in 2013, the owners of Beachcombers have entered into an agreement to purchase 3 parcels of the property commonly referred to as the Alewine property in order to develop a second location in addition to the one in Lake Havasu City.
Like a few other well-known Havasu businesses, Beachcombers had its origins in Parker years ago.
“We are looking forward to returning to the town of Parker. This is where it all started,” reads a statement by Gary, Stephanie and Dane Hatch, owners.
The store sells popular brands of flip-flops and sandals like Reef and Rainbow, sunglasses like Oakley and Hoven, scooters by Envy, longboards and other active lifestyle products like GoPro electronics.
Skip Becker of the La Paz Economic Development Corporation said the development was exactly what the Town Council had in mind when it purchased the property.
“Beachcombers Ski & Sport will be a beautiful addition to the Town of Parker redevelopment property. This project will increase sales tax revenue, increase foot traffic to surrounding businesses and create new jobs within the town of Parker.”
Spankys RV & Marine was the first business to commit to opening up at Alewine. After an announcement made in April, groundbreaking commenced later this summer and construction has begun on the new store, which sells boat and RV related gear. The 3 lots purchased by Spankys are located one behind the other, providing room for parking in front.
