Guam – After 40 years in the Agana Shopping Center the Agana Pay-Less is moving to Maite.
According to a release from Pay-Less markets their Agana store will move into the former Market Wholesale building in Maite in early 2019. They are making the move because they need more space for their flagship store. The current Agana Pay-Less has 18,000 feet of retail space and the new Maite location sits on 3 acres that can fit a 45,000 square foot building with 31,000 square feet of retail space and 106 parking stalls.
Pay-Less Executive Vice-President Kathy Sgro is quoted as saying “Pay-Less markets inc. and Agana Shopping Center have enjoyed a solid relationship over the past 40 years. Unfortunately, the existing Agana Pay-Less location can no longer accommodate the needs of our Pay-Less customers. We have outgrown our store footprint and require additional parking spaces for the convenience of our customers.”
Pay-Less should be out of Agana by February of 2019 and open at its new location in Maite sometime between March and April of that year.
