ALGONQUIN – Locals will have a new place to shop for clothes, accessories and home goods come October.
Jacksonville, Florida-based Stein Mart announced it will open a 35,000-square-foot store in River Pointe of Algonquin at the intersection of Randall and Algonquin roads, anchored by the Jewel-Osco. The retailer also plans to open a store in Willowbrook, which will bring its total number of Illinois stores to six.
“We like to be in better regional shopping centers with other retailers that appeal to our customer, so these centers were clear choices for us,” chief executive officer Hunt Hawkins said in a statement. “We are grateful for our loyal customers in the Chicago area, and we look forward to serving them with another convenient location to shop.”
Stein Mart sells clothing, jewelry, shoes, home goods and accessories. The company operates 292 stores, and plans to open 10 and close seven in 2017, according to Stein Mart’s first quarter fiscal reports.
