On Wednesday morning the Bellevue Collection announced that Zara will be opening at Bellevue Square this fall. The new store will be located in the South Common area, the site where JCPenney formally was. The new store will be one-level, 26,000 square feet, and will carry trendy finds for women, men and children.
“Bellevue Square is a perfect match with the Zara customer and we are delighted that the Bellevue and entire Eastside community is among such prestigious metropolitan cities from around the country that will welcome their new store,” Kemper Freeman, Chairman and CEO of Kemper Development Company said in a statement.
Zara is the second big retailer to move into JCPenney’s former location. In April, the Bellevue Collection announced that Uniqlo, the Japanese retail giant, will also be opening a store in the South Common area this fall. According to The Bellevue Collection other retailers are in negotiation phases to join Zara and Uniqlo in JCPenney’s old space.
