Nine new retailers and eateries are slated to make their debut in Westfield Old Orchard this year.
The collection includes a mix of projects — some of which are open already — that are gearing up to broaden the range of Skokie’s shopping center, organizers announced Tuesday. On top of the additions, the center will reopen its patios for outdoor seating in the coming months.
"These new retail and restaurant additions are key in engaging our loyal Old Orchard shoppers,” Old Orchard general manager Serge Khalimsky said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome our new partners. The center is reinvesting in customer amenities, overall ambiance and upgrades to infrastructure. As a result, the shopping center will outpace the competition, welcome a whole new generation of customers and continue to deliver the jobs and revenues Skokie needs to thrive."
The following is a roster of the latest establishments:
Alo Yoga produces performance-engineered athletic attire and gear, from leggings and sweatshirts to mats and beauty products for men and women. The Skokie storefront, which will open this spring, will be the yoga and lifestyle brand’s first location in Illinois.
