Pottery Barn Coming to Bradley Fair
Contact: Amy J. Liebau
(WICHITA, KS) – Laham Development has announced that Pottery Barn will be opening at Bradley Fair this Fall. The announcement was made by Amy Liebau, spokesperson for Laham Development.
Construction will begin on the 11,000sf signature Pottery Barn next week. Bradley Fair relocated Eddie Bauer to the space between J.Jill and White House|Black Market last year so they could roll out their new store model. This relocation allowed for the construction of the new Pottery Barn building the old Eddie Bauer location. Pottery Barn is owned by Williams-Sonoma, Inc. and currently has 198 retail stores in the United States, Canada and Australia. “Williams-Sonoma was one of the first national tenants to come to Bradley Fair and their success has been instrumental to our ability to attract the most sought-after national tenants to Wichita,” said Liebau. “We have had ongoing dialogue with Williams-Sonoma about bringing Pottery Barn to the market and they decided it was the right location in the Center and the right time to come to Wichita.”
