Sephora, Vans, jewelry, holiday decor stores and more head for Village at Meridian

A slew of new stores will open in the Village at Meridian in coming months.

National cosmetics retailer Sephora applied for a tenant improvement next to The Buckle. The large, previously empty space will house a 5,270 square foot store for Sephora. The retailer features upscale makeup, beauty and skincare products. The chain has more than 400 standalone as well as 600 locations inside JCPenney stores. This will be the fourth location in the Treasure Valley – including two at Boise Towne Square and one at the Nampa Gateway.

After the closure of Charming Charlie this summer, Holiday Nest plans to open its doors in the same spot. The Nest home furnishings store, based in Eagle, will open a holiday decor store. The pop-up location will open its doors next week and welcome shoppers through the holidays.
