It's been more than a month since Tully's filed for bankruptcy and closed its large Bella Bottega location.
Although the storefront's windows remain covered in brown butcher paper, Bella Bottega property manager Brad Merlino said the shopping center is actively seeking a new tenant, specifically a restaurant that could utilize the space's outdoor area.
"We have multiple offers on the space,” Merlino told Patch last week.
Merlino said the 3,000-square-foot space will "definitely not" continue as a coffee shop, adding that Tully's struggled to break even at Bella Bottega, even though it was one of the local chain's highest-grossing locations.
“It’s just too big for a coffee shop to make it there,” he said.
Merlino declined to get into specifics on possible restaurant tenants for the space but said property managers are looking for a business that would offer something not already found at Bella Bottega.
“We’re really careful and really cautious about having synergy in the shopping center and not too much overlap,” he said.
Meanwhile, the smaller Redmond Town Center Tully's location also remains vacant after closing its doors on Oct. 7.
“We don’t have anything new in mind for that yet," said Christina Henning, senior marketing manager for Redmond Town Center. "We have a lot of interest, though. It’s a very popular space.”
