Home furnishings retailer West Elm announced today that it will be opening a new retail location in Tampa, FL. The new 8,792-square-foot store will open on Thursday, September 19th in the Hyde Park Village.

“We are excited to continue to grow the West Elm brand with new locations around the world,” said Jim Brett, president of West Elm. “As in other West Elm locations, the Tampa store will be a creative, community-driven space with products and services designed to help customers discover their personal style at home.”

To celebrate the opening, West Elm has partnered with local designer Vicarious Clothing to create a custom tote bag which will be given away to the first 300 shoppers with a minimum purchase of $50. The company will also be hosting a sweepstakes for Tampa residents offering a chance to win a $2000 gift card.

In the new store, Tampa residents will get a first look at the West Elm Holiday assortment which includes décor and gifts in three diverse collections: Enchanted Forest, Snow Drift and New Heritage. The store will feature a variety of West Elm's mix of furniture, home decor, gifts and artist collaborations.
