Pop up stores to fill vacant Boise Towne Square storefronts

Ahead of the busy Christmas shopping season, a flurry of new stores – many temporary- are opening at Boise Towne Square.

The mall has seen a recent increase in vacancy and will soon see the closing of anchor store Sears after the fourth quarter shopping is complete.

Here’s what’s new or coming soon:

Hickory Farms

You won’t get to see the sausage being made, but you can see it being purchased. Spiced meats and cheeses will be on sale in the old Best Buy Mobile spot on the second level. It is one of seven temporary locations set to open in Ada and Canyon County. 

Pro Image Sports

As it has done in recent years, Pro Image is opening an additional location in the mall for shoppers looking for team gear. This year’s Pro Image pop-up is in the former Gymboree spot on the lower level.

Farm & Flower Products

The local provider of skincare products is set to take over the former T-Shirts Plus storefront on the upper level near Macy’s. The storefront will sell a line of organic lotions, plus decor and gifts. The location will be open through the holiday season.

Colors Origins

Another empty store will see the lights turned on for the holidays – this time for Colors Origins.  This clothing store will feature “wool and cotton hats, scarves, ponchos, sweaters, hoodies, backpacks, beanies, dresses and skirts” according to an occupancy permit.

Zambalha

This one is set for the former Flip Flop Shop on the second level – and has a variety of unique clothing and other items. The store has operated several other pop ups in the mall in recent years.

Wetzel’s Pretzels

The folded dough provider currently has two locations in the mall, and crews are working to remodel the former Teavana space near the Apple Store. This will be a permanent store location.
