Beauty retailer takes Anthropologie space in Westport
Updated 11:43 am, Thursday, July 6, 2017
Ulta Beauty is leasing the former Anthropologie store at 1365 Post Rd. East in Westport, following the latter retailer’s opening its new Anthropologie & Co. store earlier this year at the Bedford Square development in downtown Westport.
Ulta Beauty sells a wide range of cosmetics and salon brands. The Westport opening will be Ulta’s fourth in southwestern Connecticut after locations in Danbury, Norwalk and Milford. The company is on track to open 100 new stores this year.
“New store productivity continues to be very strong, reflecting excellent site selection, growing brand awareness and an increasingly appealing assortment of brand,” said Ulta Beauty CEO Mary Dillon, in a late-May conference call with investment analysts. “(The) notion of ‘all things beauty all in one place’ clearly is resonating.”
