Bigg's Place Mall location sold in Union Township to lead way for new Jungle Jim's

UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Bigg's Place Mall in Union Township was sold on Wednesday, making way for the planned second location for Jungle Jim's.

The property, located on Eastgate Blvd, was sold for $7.5 million to Union Township. The site used to be the site of a bigg's in the area, but closed when the chain was bought by Remke. Union Township has structured a long term lease & purchase option with the locally-owned Jungle Jim's to lease the former biggs Hypermarket space.

The new Jungle Jim's is scheduled to be open in February 2012. This is the second Cincinnati-area Jungle Jim's store location. The original store is located in Fairfield and offers a unique variety of ethnic foods and beverages from around the world.

The property was sold by Colliers International.
