A new lease for the former Perry Hall Superfresh lot may not be finalized until late January or early February, said Gregory Reed, assistant director of Perry Hall Square Shopping Center's management company, Kimco Realty.
While the new tenant has not yet been finalized, Reed said he expects it to be a grocery store.
Out of 40 possible spaces, the historic shopping center currently holds 24 active businesses, including anchor tenants ACE Hardware, Brunswick Perry Hall Lanes, Rite Aid and the Dollar Tree, according to Kimco's leasing documents.
Former anchor tenant Superfresh closed in July.
The shopping center may reduce its vacancies by 15 to 20 percent after the new year, Reed said.
"We're expecting offices and local chain retailers," he said. "We're working on deals."
