Dry Goods and Lovesac plan to open locations at The Village of Rochester Hills, according to Birmingham-based developer Robert B. Aikens and Associates. Grand opening dates and events have yet to be announced.
Dry Goods is a boutique owned by Von Maur, which is opening a 120,000-square-foot department store at The Village in the fall. Dry Goods has an ever-changing selection of apparel, accessories, and gifts and is expected to open in time for the fall fashion season. It has 60 retail locations in the U.S.
“We are pleased to expand our presence within Michigan and look forward to joining a great mix of retailers at The Village of Rochester Hills,” says Lindsay Caltagirone, vice president of Dry Goods. “We are confident that area shoppers will appreciate our beautiful store, exciting merchandise, and excellent customer service.”
Lovesac, a direct-to-consumer specialty furniture brand, will open its newest brick and mortar showroom this summer. Lovesac “Sactionals” are eco-friendly and designed to provide comfort and adaptability for most spaces and styles. The pieces also have changeable covers. Lovesac repurposes an average of 600 water bottles to create the base upholstery fabric of each configuration. This year, the company will repurpose more than 25 million plastic water bottles. The company has about 90 retail showrooms and is based in Connecticut.
“We are excited to be opening our showroom at The Village of Rochester Hills as we continue to expand our showroom footprint and grow the Lovesac brand,” says Shawn Nelson, CEO and founder of Lovesac. “We look forward to continuing to help people reduce their ecological footprint by creating products that are built to last a lifetime, designed to evolve with the customer, provide long-term utility, and ultimately reduce the amount of furniture discarded into landfills.”
The addition of the two stores comes on the heels of recently announced additions including Von Maur, YogaSix, and Robert Redford’s Sundance Catalogue, all set to open this year. Sephora, [solidcore], and Barnes and Noble recently opened.
“The addition of Dry Goods and Lovesac to The Village of Rochester Hills is part of our commitment to providing an enjoyable, refreshed retail experience for our shoppers,” says Margaux Keusch, senior leasing director for The Village. “As we continue to enhance our dynamic retail line-up, we look forward to welcoming even more exciting new stores to the center.”
