PALO ALTO, CA (April, 2016) — Simon, a global leader in retail real estate, announced this Spring that the transformation of the center and the addition of numerous new stores is nearly completed, further elevating the shopping experience at this well-loved Palo Alto shopping destination.
Catering to some of the most exclusive luxury brands, Simon has significantly enhanced the retail environment of Stanford Shopping Center to reflect the Bay Area’s upscale and outdoor lifestyle. The enhancement of the property has remained true to the center’s history of casual elegance in a spectacular garden setting that has captivated Northern California residents and visitors alike for nearly sixty years.
As part of Stanford Shopping Center’s transformation, Bloomingdale’s has relocated into a new, two-level, 120,000 square-foot store. The former Bloomingdale’s store was demolished and is being replaced with a roster of new retailers. In addition to Japanese lifestyle brand, MUJI; trendy girls’ retailer, Brandy Melville; and premium electric vehicle designer and manufacturer, Tesla, all of which opened last year, the following retailers will be rolling out their grand openings over the Spring and Summer seasons of 2016:
Stores that opened in March of 2016 include Everything But Water, the premier destination for designer swim and resort fashion all year long, as well as LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, a pioneer in creating unique beauty products such as the fizzing bath bomb, shower jellies and solid shampoo bars. Vineyard Vines, which offers clothing, accessories and gifts for men, women and children, as well as the brand’s signature neckties, also joined the center’s impressive retail offering along with lululemon athletica, which features yoga-inspired athletic apparel designed for men and women, and inspires people to live an active and stress-free lifestyle.
Existing retailers BCBGMAXAZRIA, glassybaby, Hugo Boss, J.Crew, Solstice, Tommy Bahama and Victoria’s Secret have also reopened in newly designed spaces.
“Stanford Shopping Center is celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2016,” said David Contis, President of Simon Malls. “While the center’s patrons are rooted in tradition, they seek the innovation that continues to buzz throughout the Silicon Valley region. We couldn’t think of a more exciting time to enhance this beloved outdoor center for the community.”
Visitors to the center can also stroll the beautiful gardens, stretch out on the lawn and enjoy The Plaza during special events. Highlights of the new space include a water feature with infinity edges, utilizing reclaimed water and the seasonal rotation of blooming flowers.
