At Home Opens First West Coast Store

At Home has opened two new stores in January including its first West Coast store in Washington state.

The home décor retailer also opened a new store in the Washington, D.C. market, bringing its nationwide store count to 180. The two new January openings are both second-generation stores located at 209 Kentlands Blvd., Gaithersburg, MD; and 301 37th Ave SE, Puyallup, Washington.

“We remain very methodical about our growth,” said Lee Bird, At Home chairman and CEO. “Our opportunistic real estate strategy is focused on repurposing existing big boxes as well as building new stores from the ground up. Our flexibility, coupled with the increasing productivity of these new stores, gives us the confidence to further expand our footprint from coast to coast.”

At Home said its strategy is to grow the brand domestically, with the long-term potential to expand to at least 600 stores.
