(Filed Under Fashion News). Despite sales drops in recent months, new JCPenney and Macy's stores continue to pop up around the country.
On July 31st, JCPenney will open an 115,000-square-foot store in the Village at Fairview, marking the first department store to open in the mixed-use complex north of Dallas, Tex. According to reports, the Penney store is also the first in the nation designed to meet LEED-certification standards. LEED is a third-party certification program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings. According to the LEED website, in order to meet requirements companies must maintain sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
Also set to open in the Village of Fairview is a 120,000-square-foot Macy's on August 5th. Both stores are hiring, with Macy's planning on adding 150 sales, support and management positions. Dilliards also plans to open a store in the village in 2010.
