Two New Stores at Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall, Extended Saturday Hours
New Buckle and LUSH Stores Set to Open In Time for Spring And Summer Season, New Saturday Hours for Increased Consumer Demand
ANCHORAGE, AK (April 24, 2014) – Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall today announced two new tenants expected to open at the property: Buckle, a denim destination and specialty retailer, and LUSH Handmade Cosmetics. The two retailers will be added to the robust line-up of stores the property has added in the past year including Michael Kors, Sephora and Starbucks. In addition to new retailers moving in, there has been a lot of movement at the property. Hallmark, Journeys and Hot Topic have all relocated to the first floor and Wet Seal will be re-opening at the end of this month. In fact, starting May 3, the mall will extend its Saturday hours, remaining open until 9 p.m. to stay consistent with the restaurants and department stores that currently stay open later than the mall.
“We’re always looking to bring new, exciting retailers to the property,” said Kari Skinner, Director of Marketing at Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall. “Buckle and LUSH are two brands our shoppers know well and we can’t wait to welcome them to our mall and the Anchorage community.”
Buckle will be opening its doors at Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall this spring. Known for its unique mix of on-trend clothing, shoes, and accessories, Buckle caters to style-conscious men and women seeking to express their individuality through fashion. Buckle carries a wide selection of fits, styles and finishes from leading denim brands. To help guests complete their looks, Buckle offers tops, footwear and accessories from popular lifestyle labels. In all, Buckle represents more than 200 fashion brands in its stores and online at buckle.com. The store will be interviewing for various positions, including: Assistant Managers, Management Trainees, Sales and Management Interns, Full-time Sales, Part-time Sales, Freight Coordinator and Tailor/Seamstress. Interested applicants should apply online at buckle.jobs.
Also new to the property, LUSH Handmade Cosmetics will open its doors at Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall this summer. It will be the first location in the state of Alaska, joining popular retailers Nordstrom, jcpenney, Apple Store, Banana Republic, bareMinerals, bebe, Coach, Michael Kors and Sephora.
Extended Saturday Hours
In addition to the two new stores, Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall will extend its regular mall hours on Saturdays beginning next month. Effective Saturday, May 3, the mall will stay open until 9 p.m. on Saturdays, an hour later than before. The new mall hours will be:
Monday to Friday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
This slight change is in effort to accommodate local consumer demands, and better align with the department stores and restaurants operating at later hours.
“We’re excited to be open later for our customers taking advantage of all that downtown Anchorage has to offer on a Saturday night,” said Skinner.
