Kushner Builds Upon Leasing Success Welcoming Three New Tenants to The Shops at Pier Village 

Kushner announces it has signed new retail leases to bring three exciting businesses to the growing tenant roster at Pier Village, the year-round oceanfront residential, retail and recreational destination in Long Branch, N.J. Lifestyle brand, Salt Life, will lease 3,453 square feet marking its first Northeast retail location. Strand Salon will expand its beauty concept opening its fourth location leasing 5,000 square feet while Remedy Realm will open its first permanent location taking 1,729 square feet at The Shops at Pier Village. All three businesses are scheduled to open by the spring of 2023.

Founded in 2003 by four avid watermen from Jacksonville Beach, Fla., Salt Life has become one of the nation’s leading lifestyle brands. Salt Life merchandise can be found in surf shops, specialty stores, department stores and sporting goods retailers across the country as well as in the brand’s 21 retail locations. Its new retail location at The Shops at Pier Village marks Salt Life’s first foray into the northeastern market and highlights the continued four-season appeal of the property’s retail offerings.

Strand Salon is a unique concept that provides beauty professionals with luxurious customizable room rentals curated to meet their needs. Currently operating three locations in with two in Paramus and one in Englewood, N.J., the company will significantly grow its footprint and geographic reach with the opening of its new 5,000-square-foot space at The Shops at Pier Village.

Created by Dr. Avraham Schreiber, Remedy Realm is a healthcare concept offering a range of IV drips, Peptide injections, facial aesthetic treatments and other services designed to help people live and feel their best. Previously operating as a successful pop-up at The Shops at Pier Village, Remedy Realm’s new permanent 1,729-square-foot home will ensure convenient access to all their services for both residents and visitors of the development.

“We have always known that the success of Pier Village has relied upon making it a sought-after destination for retail and service tenants from January to December,” said Nicole Kushner Meyer of Kushner. “These three leases showcase our success in making that vision a reality and we are proud to welcome each of them to our one-of-a-kind community.”
