Princeton mall continues to enhance its retail offerings in conjunction with sweeping renovations
PRINCETON, NJ, MAY 21, 2013 – MarketFair announced today that it has signed the popular women’s athletic wear store Athleta. Slated to open in the fall of 2013, Athleta will join several recently opened and forthcoming restaurant and retail tenants at the center including Banana Republic and Season’s 52.
Athleta will occupy 4,010 square feet between Sunglass Hut and Pottery Barn Kids. A member of the Gap Inc. family of stores, Athleta sells women’s yoga apparel, swimwear, work out gear and other accessories. A growing brand, this will be only the second location for Athleta in New Jersey.
