Macy’s, Inc. has announced that Bloomingdale’s plans to open a 150,000-square-foot, three-level location in fall 2018 in an all-new shopping, dining and entertainment center being developed in Norwalk, CT, by General Growth Properties.
The Bloomingdale’s store will include a wide assortment of designer and luxury goods, including women’s apparel, shoes, accessories, beauty, men’s, kids and home. Bloomingdale’s Norwalk store is expected to employ a workforce of approximately 200 associates.
“This spectacular new shopping center will be a distinctive and upscale destination for Fairfield County and surrounding areas, prominently positioned at I-95 and Highway 7,” said Tony Spring, chairman and CEO of Bloomingdale’s. “Our new store will offer an exciting fashion environment and a modern service experience to build upon our strong base of loyal omnichannel customers in the Northeast.”
The Norwalk location will be the 41st Bloomingdale’s store location. In addition to 37 current stores, new Bloomingdale’s stores are expected to open in fall 2015 in Ala Moana in Honolulu, in fall 2017 in the Mall at Miami Worldcenter in Miami, FL, and in Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Center in San Jose, CA.
Bloomingdale’s in Dubai is operated by Al Tayer Group LLC under a license agreement, as will a new Bloomingdale’s to open in Abu Dhabi in 2018.
Bloomingdale’s also operates 13 outlet stores in the U.S., with a 14th opening in fall 2015 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City, as previously announced.
