Kumon Math & Reading Center of Boulder to Open in Village Shopping Center in Boulder in August

Gart Properties LLC leases space at Folsom and Arapahoe between Play! and Rocky Mountain Kids.

Denver, Colorado – April, 2013 –

Kumon Math & Reading Center of Boulder will be opening on August 1, 2013 next to Rocky Mountain Kids in The Village Shopping Center.  Kumon is the world’s largest after-school learning program with locations in 47 countries and regions on 6 continents.  Kumon of Boulder is the first location in Boulder.

Owner John Redding was looking for a location that was situated in the midst of other child-oriented businesses.  “The proximity to other child-related businesses initially attracted me to The Village but as I explored the possibility my dealings with the leasing director and property manager were so pleasant that I thought working with them in the future would be a great experience.”

This is Redding’s first venture into retail.  He previously had his own engineering business.  “I have a love of teaching, learning and of math & reading.  I’m looking forward to using the Kumon Method to help children empower themselves to love math and reading, too.”

Kumon Math & Reading Center of Boulder will be open Monday through Friday, from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.  The Kumon Method caters to children of all ages and levels, helping them to build the skills to learn on their own, developing a strong academic base that will last a lifetime.

The lease term on the 1,570 square foot space is five years.  The tenant was represented by Peter Mackie with Coldwell Banker.
