The Outlets at Silverthorne this week announced it is welcoming its newest store — the teen clothing brand American Eagle Outfitters.
The new store, which opens Wednesday, June 4, is located in the Red Village, across the courtyard from Bath & Body Works. The address is 135-A Stephens Way.
“It’s a great addition to the Red Village, as it marries up beautifully with the tenants already attracting a younger demographic, like the Gap, Columbia Sportswear, Aeropostale and several others,” said Jayne Esser, general manager of the outlets. “It’s one of the fastest growing and most popular brands, and we’re really excited to have them joining some of our other top brands in the Red Village.”
American Eagle just last week finished construction of its space. The atmosphere is being described as laid back, complete with a flat-screen television showcasing the latest trends and music.
But at 7,000 square feet, it’s also one of the largest stores at the outlets. By comparison, Under Armour occupies 6,500 square feet, Calvin Klein has 6,000 and Columbia Sportswear comes in at 7,000.
“Our large, anchor stores tend to be in that 6,000- to 7,000-square-foot range,” Esser said. “It’s definitely going to be an anchor store in the Red Village.”
In addition, Esser said a number of other big-name retailers are interested in coming to the outlets now that American Eagle has moved in. Esser could not identify those retailers, but said she sensed other brands are looking to capitalize on American Eagle’s reputation for attracting a lot of foot traffic.
