Anthropologie May Be Coming to Old Blockbuster Site
The women's clothing store could be moving into the vacant space at 412 Washington St.
This article has been corrected to show that the lease to 412 Washington St. has not yet been signed. It is not yet certain that women's clothing store Anthropologie will occupy the space.
The lease at the old Blockbuster site, where women's clothing store Anthropologie may come next, hasn't been signed yet, said realtor Karina Abad, from RE/MAX Gold Coast in a phone interview on Monday night.
Blockbuster Video, the previous tenant, closed in March 2011.
In the first version of her blog post, Abad said Anthropologie is leasing the approximatly 7,000 square foot space for $50 per square foot, but terms for the lease may have changed, Abad said. Abad is not the agent assigned to this deal.
Abad said she does not yet know when the new store will open but expects it to be sometime after completing renovation work.
Anthropologie sells clothes for several different occasions, seasons and locations, plus shoes, accessories, gifts and home décor. The chain, which has been in business since 1992, has more than 160 stores across the United States.
