Town Center at Boca Raton

BY CSA STAFF

Town Center at Boca Raton, in Boca Raton, Fla., has launched a redesign of its food court that will see it re-emerge as The Cafes at Boca.

The Simon Property Group-owned mall’s upgraded food court will include a new contemporary design integrating modern elements already present in the common areas of the mall. The fabric roof structure will be replaced with a sloping architecture featuring clerestory windows to allow more natural light. Old fixtures will be replaced with the latest lighting technology. Flooring will include new porcelain tiles in three different neutral shades, and banquette and reupholstered seating arrangements will create a café feel.

The design and renovation process was initiated by Simon and is being overseen by CSO Architects of Indianapolis. Construction is slated for completion in October.

Town Center at Boca Raton features 220 luxury stores, including Coach, Tiffany & Co., Bvlgari, Cartier, Ulysse Nardin, Michael Kors, Williams-Sonoma, Intermix, Pottery Barn, Ann Taylor, Louis Vuitton, Origins, Juicy Couture, Godiva Chocolatier, abercrombie, anne fontaine and Brookstone, as well as anchor stores Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Sears.

Toys’R’Us plays down poor 1Q comps performance

BY CSA STAFF

WAYNE, N.J.— Toys“R”Us reported that domestic comparable-store sales were down 2.1% for its fiscal first quarter. Total sales were up 1.1% tp $2.6 billion.

According to the company, sales were strongest in the learning and core toy categories, while the entertainment and seasonal categories struggled.

Jerry Storch, chairman and CEO of Toys“R”Us, stated, “In the first quarter, we made important investments, including preparations to open a new west coast distribution center to support the continued strong growth of our e-commerce operations, the additional conversions of our stores to an integrated format offering both toy and juvenile products, and the implementation of other key strategic initiatives. Planned increases associated with investments made during this smaller, off-peak quarter for our business will position the company well for the balance of the year and for the future. At the same time, the team focused on product differentiation and margin improvement, delivering strong gross margin growth.” Storch added, “As we continue to look for ways to improve the customer shopping experience, we are committed to strengthening our multichannel capabilities, allowing consumers to shop with us anytime from anywhere.”
