Maricopans will have more shopping, dining and entertainment choices when the Promenade at Casa Grande opens this fall.

Harkins, Target, Kohl’s, JCPenney, Dillard’s, Best Buy, Shoe Pavilion, Lane Bryant, Michaels and Famous Footwear will open as a part of phase one of the project.

“The Promenade at Casa Grande will feature an open-air, pedestrian-friendly layout designed to promote a sense of community,” said Paul Rypma, Assistant Vice President of Development, Westcor. “The well-designed open spaces and plazas will feature lush landscaping and deliver a relaxing environment for shopping, dining and socializing.”

Westcor announced today that Dillard’s, Famous Footwear, Lane Bryant, Michaels, PetSmart and Shoe Pavilion are the newest editions to the project and that more are on their way.

The Promenade at Casa Grande is the perfect location for us to serve the area’s growing population,” said William Dillard, II, Chief Executive Officer of Dillard’s. “Our Arizona customers know what to expect from us, and this location allows us to present exciting choices in fashion in a convenient, multi-use destination.” The tone of the new store will reflect Dillard’s renewed focus on upscale and contemporary fashion.

Previously announced retailers Best Buy, Staples and Target are expected to open during later phases. The Promenade at Casa Grande’s second phase is expected to open spring 2008.

The Promenade at Casa Grande is located next to Interstate 10 and State Route 287 in Casa Grande.
