Bend’s Old Mill District is excited to announce that Anthropologie will be opening in the riverfront shopping district later this year.
Anthropologie, which is best known for its creative fashions and home decor, opened its first store in Wayne, Pennsylvania in 1992. Part of the URBN brand portfolio that includes Urban Outfitters and Free People, Anthropologie now operates more than 200 stores across the globe. The Old Mill District store will be Anthropologie’s third operation in Oregon and the first in the state outside of the Portland metro area.
“They’re going to be an amazing addition to the district,” said Beau Eastes, marketing director for the Old Mill District. “Anthropologie is one of those iconic retail brands that will elevate everyone around them.”
Over the course of three decades, Anthropologie has evolved from women’s clothing to a full lifestyle shopping experience. The brand’s offerings now include shoes, accessories, beauty, furniture, home décor, garden and bridal.
Anthropologie will have a significant presence in the Old Mill District, occupying approximately 7,500 square feet at 325 SW Powerhouse Dr., Suite 110. A leader and trendsetter in immersive and experiential retail settings, Anthropologie will replace Chico’s and White House Black Market, combining those two spaces into one to create a new anchor tenant in the north end of the district.
“We’re thrilled to see that north end continue to evolve,” Eastes said, noting the success of Lady Bird Cultural Society, the Old Mill District’s new Mediterranean-influenced fine dining concept, which went into the north end of the district in January.
Renovations at Anthropologie’s new space are set to start in the spring with an open date expected for later this fall.
