An opening date for one new Emporia store has been confirmed. An open date for another store is still pending.
Officials with the Emporia Pavilions’ Shoe Department Encore say they will open Nov. 23, following the opening of Ross Dress for Less last month and just in time for the peak holiday shopping season. Encore becomes the third store to open at the Pavilions since it officially opened in 2017 with Hobby Lobby.
The grand opening for the fourth store, Marshalls, is officially on hold. Developer Spencer Thomson says the Marshalls project has been beset by supply issues all year.
With these projects near the finish line, Thomson has been working to add more retail stores and the first restaurants to the Pavilions project. Announcements are pending.
