Hancock Fabrics will open in the Shoppes at the Village in Ashwaubenon this summer.

Hancock is one of a half-dozen new businesses owned by Midwest Expansion of Suamico that are moving into spaces around the metro area.

Shoppes at the Village is between South Oneida Street and Holmgren Way, immediately south of U.S. 172. Hancock Fabrics will be in the middle of the shopping center on the South Oneida Street side.

On the Holmgren Way side, Dalton Carpet Outlet, already a Shoppes tenant, was scheduled to move this weekend to a new space near its current storefront to make way for Pawn America. The 18,000-square-foot pawn store with a large retail component is scheduled to open in spring.

Also in Ashwaubenon, bed and mattress store Sleep Number will open at 2330 S. Oneida St., in the small strip center just north of McDonald's. The Sleep Number opening is planned for summer.

Still in Ashwaubenon, Exquisite Threading/Polished Nails will open this summer at 2674 S. Oneida St., next to Breadsmith, where Schlotzsky's Deli once was located.

In De Pere, Dollar Tree will open an 8,400-square-foot store in the De Pere Crossings shopping center, 1601 Lawrence Drive, near Walmart. Dollar Tree is expected to open in March.

And at Urban Edge shopping center in Suamico, Big Beef City restaurant will open in spring. Big Beef City will feature Chicago-style Italian beef and Chicago dogs.

H.J. Martin recognized

H.J. Martin and Son received two 2012 Build Wisconsin Specialty Contractor Awards from Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin.

One award was for interior finishes in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Union South, which opened in 2011. H.J. Martin was recognized for its floor installation.

The second was for installation of black-glass windows for the Knight Development Building, 1121 W. Main Ave., De Pere, the home of SparkNET. The 17,000-square-foot glass installation was recognized for enhancing the building's look. Also noted was H.J. Martin's environmentally friendly work on the project, with 92 percent of the aluminum used made from recycled materials.

H.J. Martin is a retail and commercial flooring, windows and commercial fixtures contractor. Its headquarters is at 320 Military Ave., Green Bay.

Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin is a professional trade association for the commercial construction industry. Established in 1935, it is one of 96 chapters of the AGC of America.
