Stars and Strikes Leases 50,000 SF at Ackerman’s Woodstock Square Shopping Center


ATLANTA, August 6, 2014 – Georgia-based Stars and Strikes has signed a new 50,000-square-foot, 15-year lease at Ackerman’s Woodstock Square Shopping Center in Woodstock, Ga. Stars and Strikes, a family entertainment center, will use their new space to house state-of-the-art bowling lanes, a two-story laser tag arena, a laser maze, bumper cars, multiple private event spaces, and more. The new center marks their sixth location in Metro Atlanta and will bring nearly 100 locally filled jobs to Woodstock.

“Stars and Strikes has seen and heard demand from the residents of Cherokee County and the surrounding area for a while now,” said Jack Canouse, managing partner and co-founder of Stars and Strikes. Woodstock Square Shopping Center allows the company to bring a family-focused entertainment center to the Woodstock-Marietta-Canton-Kennesaw area that guests of any age can enjoy.

“We are excited to have Stars and Strikes as the new anchor tenant of Woodstock Square,” said Jeff Rosenthal, the property’s asset manager. “It is wonderful to partner with a local company to bring jobs and family entertainment to the community. We are equally pleased to have been able to meet their business goals which included a highly visible location with easy access, excellent egress and ingress, a signalized intersection and abundant free parking in Woodstock,” he added. Ackerman Leasing Agent Angela Chapman represented the landlord in this transaction.

Woodstock Square Shopping Center, located on Highway 92 and less than a mile off Interstate 575, is a 79,969-square-foot neighborhood shopping center featuring two buildings and two outparcels. Long-term tenants include Subway, Goodyear, Edward Jones and Stevie B’s Pizza. Ackerman purchased the property in the late 90’s and has since sold one of the three original outparcels to Taco Bell. Following the opening of Stars and Strikes in the spring of 2015, Ackerman plans to freshen up the look of the shopping center to further enhance consumer shopping and dining experience.
