Big Lots, Spirit Halloween take root in Issaquah
September 4, 2012
The closeout retailer Big Lots is coming to Pickering Place, as months of closings, openings and shuffling continues among tenants at the retail center.
Columbus, Ohio-based Big Lots is due to open the space last occupied by Leathers Gallery, a local furniture store. Leathers moved to a space across the parking lot recently, and Big Lots is renovating the former furniture store.
Big Lots executives could not be reached for details about the store opening.
Before Leathers moved into the then-vacant space, Linens-N-Things operated in the 37,500-square-foot storefront.
Elsewhere, Spirit Halloween opened in the former Albertsons along East Lake Sammamish Parkway. The seasonal tenant offers Halloween makeup, costumes and other holiday items.
Albertsons closed in April 2008, and the space has remained vacant since then.
