BIZNOTE: Ulta Beauty grand opening at Westwood Village set for April 14th

(WSB photo, after the sign went up on the front of the store earlier this week)

It’s the new-business question we’ve been asked the most in recent weeks – when is the Westwood Village Ulta Beauty store opening? Today, we finally have the answer. We first reported back in June that Ulta would be taking over the former Pier 1 Imports space, after we found the information in the city permit files; the company wouldn’t confirm at the time, but the store has taken shape in recent months. Finally, they’ve announced the grand opening weekend as Friday, April 14th, through Sunday, April 16th. This is one of about 100 stores the chain expects to open this fiscal year; it has almost 1,000 stores nationwide.

    Thanks for the update! I hope this business may create some others to come in, lots of empty storefronts – and Radio Shack gone soon too.

    ULTA at Westwood is good = one less trip to Southcenter for us. The answer to empty store fronts could be redeveloping half of the existing mall space with housing. I didn’t need Pier 1 and except for the fact that it’s the only grocer on the northern side of Barton, I don’t need an over priced, low quality QFC. A Grocery Outlet, 500 1-2br units and a safe play space would be a boon to the neighborhood.

      There are some grocery shoppers on the South end of West Seattle who prefer organic and gourmet options when they shop. To them, healthy options or quality may be more of a consideration than price. For those shoppers, QFC is the closest thing to a PCC or Met Market. QFC also much better for the commercial success of Westwood Village, than a Grocery Outlet as it attracts a higher spending demographic which will support filling in the rest of the vacant storefronts. For those looking for cheap groceries on the South end, try SAARS on 16th.

    Yessssss! Can’t wait to ween off Sephora so I can shop closer to home at Ulta. Really missed having one close after moving here from Northgate 5 years ago.

    A boon to the neighborhood would be a reimagined WV- with shops- restaurants. Whoever owns/leases WV is – in my view missing a great opportunity to expand- with WS Junction filling up fast- the right businesses could really do well.

    I think the idea of housing should be examined.  Might be a good idea.  

    Also think WV sorely needs a decent restaurant in addition to all the “take-out”  and “fast food” venues there now.  Many years ago there have been – at different times -very nice restaurants at WV where you could get really good food, decent prices, nice, quiet atmosphere.  Miss those days!

    Westwood Village has a lot of space to expand.Hint: the vast parking area. Build up, leaving parking underneath. WV needs a good sit down restaurant with bar where one can enjoy an adult beverage and a good meal while waiting for a bus. How about a movie theatre? WV is an urban gem that is being underutilized. With West Seattle growing so rapidly, we need improvements to this mall more than ever. Anything that can get us out of cars and staying closer to home would be huge.

Sorry, comment time is over.
