The first step in "a major renovation project underway for Shoppers Square" has been submitted to the city of Reno, according to an application filed for a special use permit.
According to the permit, Shoppers Square is being rebranded as "The Bottom of Midtown" or "The BOM." Sole owner of the center, Rick Casazza, said the name change matches because "We are literally at the bottom of Midtown."
Shoppers Square - a nearly 53-year-old shopping center - is due for renovations, Casazza said.
The special use permit filed to request a drive-through window for the CVS store. According to the permit, the CVS store will be relocated to the west side of the site.
While Casazza said "major announcements" are in the works for the area.
"Shoppers Square isn't going to look anything like it does right now," he said. "It's time."
