Norwin Town Square was origionally developed by the Soffer Group in 1963, and is one of the first centers of its kind in the country. Some of the first anchor tenants included Woolworth, Coxes, A&P, Isaly's, Central Drug, and two grocery stores, Foodland and Shop N' Save.
After more than 40 years of prosperity and five phases of expansion, Norwin Town Square fell into disarray and soon was subject to citizen and governmental scrutiny alike.
North Huntingdon Township officials approached Colony Holding Company in early 2011 and inquired what could be done to beautify this blighted property. Colony thereafter undertook an examination of the asset and soon commenced negotiations with Soffer Group.
Immedediatly following closing on the property, Colony began executing the redevelopment plan. Norwin Town Square's west wing was demolished to make way for a new state of the art Toyota dealership and service center. The east leg of the center, that historically housed Scozio's Shop N' Save, was demolished to make way for a new construction Shop N' Save, attached Wooden Nickel restaurant and new parking field.
After 2 and a half years of redevelopment, Colony brought Norwin Town Square back to life with anchor tenants Shop N' Save and Planet Fitness, executing leases between 2013 and 2014. These anchors laid the foundation for secondary users to once again flourish at Norwin Town Square.
In late 2015, Colony executed a lease with Petland to add a junior anchor to the west wing of the center. Currently the 11,576 square foot store is the largest Petland in the world, offering general retail, grooming, boarding, training and shelter adoptions.
