Five facts you probably didn’t know about Citrus Heights

Sunrise MarketPlace Executive Director Kathilynn Carpenter referred questions about the signage to the Gerrity Group, a Solana Beach-based company that specializes in owning and managing retail properties. A representative of the company said in a March 9 email that the project was not yet completed and declined to comment further.

Carpenter said the project did not receive funding from Sunrise MarketPlace, which is the business improvement district made up of several hundred businesses in the Sunrise-Greenback commercial corridor.

Businesses in the Marketplace at Birdcage include a Walmart neighborhood market along with Old Navy, Coldstone Creamery, Off Broadway Shoes, Inferno Chicken, and others. The center most recently welcomed a new Chuze Fitness, which took up a building formerly home to Sports Authority.
