It’s official: Tacoma’s getting an Apple store.
Tacoma Mall spokeswoman Sarah Bonds just told me that the old Nordstrom space will be divided into three spaces: One for Apple, one for beauty retailer Sephora and one for a retailer she can’t announce yet.
The old Nordstrom is two stories and about 106,000 square feet. Bonds said the un-named retailer will take up most of the space and have the outside entrances, and that all three tenants will have mall entrances.
Apple and Sephora plan to open in late spring or early summer of next year. The third will open sometime next year, too, though Bonds couldn’t be more specific.
I’m trying to get in touch with spokespeople for Apple and Sephora, and will post more details as I learn them.
