Foot Gear Outdoor, Diventi Bella the latest to apply
UNIVERSITY PARK -- Former St. Armands shoe store Foot Gear Outdoor will open a location inside the Mall at University Town Center.
The store filed a building application Monday with Sarasota County for a space inside the two-level, 880,000-square-foot mall. The St. Armands retailer closed this year where Tervis maintains a company shop now on the circle.
Foot Gear will join shoe stores Aldo, Champ's Sports, FootLocker, Johnston & Murphy, Journey's, Stuart Weitzman and The Walking Company at the Mall at UTC. Anchors at the mall include Macy's, Dillard's, Apple, Crate & Barrel, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Also, Diventi Bella Fragrances & Cosmetics filed a building application Monday for space inside the new mall. That store will join other beauty shops including
Kiehl's, Bath & Body Works, L'Occitane En Provence, LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Mac and Sephora.
Saks Fifth Avenue has already turned on its lights, offering a nighttime light show with white, yellow and blue hues.
The mall, which is now updating its Facebook page at Facebook.com/MallatUTC, is expected to open Oct. 16 featuring more than 100 stores and restaurants. The mall is off of Cattlemen Road and University Parkway.
