October 27, 2017
  • Woodbury Corporation, WPI Enterprises and others Partnered on the Approximately 245,000 Square Foot Expansion Project
  • Ribbon-cutting Ceremony Included Remarks from Spanish Fork Mayor Steve Leifson
  • A Total of 45 Shops, Businesses and Restaurants are Expected to Open by Year’s End

SALT LAKE CITY (October 27, 2017) – Woodbury Corporation, a full-service real estate and development company, in partnership with WPI Enterprises, Scott Hanson, and the Foremaster family, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to welcome 12 new businesses to the Canyon Creek Commercial Center in Spanish Fork City, Utah. The public, city officials, local dignitaries and others attended the event, which was emceed by Seth Perrins, Spanish Fork city manager, and featured remarks from Spanish Fork Mayor Steve Leifson.

The new businesses joining the Canyon Creek Commercial Center represent the completion of the first phase of a previously announced expansion project that will add 245,000 square foot of retail and restaurant space. The newest additions include Ulta Beauty, Downeast Home and Clothing, Famous Footwear, Maurices, TJ Maxx, Petco and Ace Hardware, among others. As part of the grand opening celebration, many of these new stores will be offering customers special ribbon-cutting deals, promotions and giveaways.

During the ribbon cutting, Canyon Creek Commercial Center also unveiled a custom-made bronze statue. The approximately 25-foot long sculpture, of a farmer with a plow horse, was created by local artist Jonathan Bronson and pays homage to the hard-working ancestors who built up the area.

“We love the idea expressed by this statue, because it is a great reminder that we are building on a rich history and what we do here is strengthening the fabric of the community,” said Jeff Woodbury, vice president of development and acquisitions for Woodbury Corporation. “As we continue to expand and bring in new businesses, we will keep our focus on meeting the needs of Spanish Fork and surrounding residents.”

As an approximately 220-acre mixed-use development project, Canyon Creek Commercial Center is one of the largest commercial developments currently underway along the Wasatch Front. The partnership worked closely with a number of elected Spanish Fork officials and staff to create a plan that would benefit local residents by infusing new life into the city’s economy, and developing an otherwise underdeveloped area.

“This Canyon Creek expansion plan is really designed to increase the livability of our community,” said Mayor Leifson.  “We’ve never had such a wide variety of retail opportunities in this area, and we are confident that the residents are really going to respond well to having all these new shopping options.”

Construction will continue on the expansion, and the next wave of businesses that will be opening for business in the upcoming months includes Ross, Olive Garden and a Cinemark luxury theater.
