New stores open at Lakewood Towne Center

Some of the new stores that were built as part of Phase II construction at the Lakewood Towne Center opened recently, with more set to open this fall.

This past Saturday, Aug. 16, PETSsMART celebrated its grand opening, although the store has been open to the public since Monday, Aug. 11.

Burlington Coat Factory, which has moved from a smaller building into a new, 70,000-square foot structure, opened on Monday, Aug. 18.

A new Office Depot – also to be relocated to an improved facility – and Pier 1 Imports are tentatively set to open in early October, according to Dawn Baerlocher, MBK Northwest project manager.

MBK Northwest is the Portland, Ore.-based developer responsible for transforming the Lakewood Mall into the Lakewood Towne Center.

The Lakewood Towne Center is located at 10509 Gravelly Lake Dr. in Lakewood.
