Five Below, whose products are aimed at pre-teen and teen customers and are all priced at $5 and below, is located at 1230 Cullman Shopping Center NW, in the former Hancock Fabrics location.

“Five Below is one of the fastest growing retailers in the country and we are excited about the addition of this merchant to the Cullman Shopping Center and the community,” Susan Eller, project coordinator with the Cullman Economic Development Agency said in June.

Eller continued, “With the closure of Hancock Fabrics, it left a hole in the Cullman Shopping Center and we are pleased that gap was filled so quickly. Five Below caters to teens, pre-teens and their parents. This fills a gap that I’m sure a lot of our younger citizens will enjoy!”

Merchants Retail Partners (MRP), a Birmingham-based real estate investment firm, is opening the store. MRP also brought Publix, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Ross Dress for Less, Ulta Beauty and PetSmart to the Cullman Shopping Center.

“Five Below is a great addition to our lineup.  With Cullman’s low unemployment and strong school system, more and more retailers have identified this trade area as untapped with great potential” said Bill Leitner, managing principal at MRP, last month.

Five Below was founded in 2002, and is headquartered in Philadelphia, with approximately 550 stores in 32 states.  For more information, see www.fivebelow.com.
