GLENDALE, Calif.–Macy’s, Inc. plans to open a new full-line Bloomingdale’s store in Glendale Galleria here in fall 2013.
The 120,000-square-foot store on two levels will headline an upscale redevelopment of the center being planned by its owner, General Growth Properties. The top two floors of the former Mervyn’s location will be entirely remodeled by Bloomingdale’s into “a sophisticated upscale shopping experience,” the company said, with construction expected to begin in 2012. The Bloomingdale’s store workforce is projected to include 175 associates.
“Bloomingdale’s business in southern California has developed rapidly since we opened our first store in the Los Angeles area in 1996. Glendale Galleria will be our eighth store in the market. Customers love our unique sense of contemporary style and the attentive service that sets Bloomingdale’s apart,” said Michael Gould, chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s. “Much like Bloomingdale’s stores in Soho and Santa Monica, we expect our assortment and shopping experience in Glendale will be carefully edited for the community and customer.”
