Free People store is the first Free People store in the Princeton, NJ market, and, on May 5, the public is invited to attend the grand opening celebration. The all-day grand opening will feature a $500 shopping spree giveaway. The opening of Free People is the culmination of Madison Marquette’s master redevelopment plan to reposition the already successful center intoone of the area’s most dynamic destinations. Free People is a sought-after brand with designs that portray intelligence, creativity and individuality. The store, which features a trendy assortment of apparel and accessories, will be located between BoConcept and the recently renovated Sunglass Hut.

“Madison Marquette has successfully transformed MarketFair into a dynamic and exceptional shopping destination in the Princeton, NJ area for retailers and restaurateurs alike,” said John-David Franklin, CRX, CLS, senior vice president of leasing for Madison Marquette. “MarketFair’s renovation enables the center to remain the true luxury shopping, dining and entertainment destination in the marketplace.”

Some of MarkeFair’s renovation highlights include a new AMC Stadium Theater, featuring 10 screens, and new leather reclined seating. Madison Marquette made the decision to move the Barnes & Noble to the north end of the center in order to build out a new 28,041 square-foot flagship. The former Barnes & Noble space was creatively filled with Seasons 52 (9,300 square-feet), Bahama Breeze (8,500 square-feet) and a newly expanded Eastern Mountain Sports.
