PETOSKEY — HomeGoods, a retail chain taking an off-price approach to home decor items, is readying a new location in Petoskey’s Bear Creek Plaza for an opening this fall.
The Massachusetts-based retailer recently announced plans to open the 22,502-square-foot store on Oct. 28 at 1614 Anderson Road. It will be the chain’s first Northern Michigan location.
In a press release, HomeGoods noted that its stores offer “an ever-changing selection of high-quality merchandise at excellent values. With prices significantly less than department or specialty stores, the HomeGoods shopping experience is unlike any other. From top brands and designers to exciting finds from all over the world, HomeGoods offers an inspiring selection in countless styles for every room of the house.”
HomeGoods offers merchandise in departments such as decorative accessories, furniture, rugs, lighting, kitchen and dining, bath, bedding, kids’ décor and toys, pet accessories, storage, workspace, outdoor, gourmet and wellness.
“Our amazing values, brand names, and vast assortment make HomeGoods an exciting destination for shoppers,” HomeGoods president John Ricciuti stated in a press release.
“With a large variety of special merchandise from around the world, customers will always find something thrilling in our treasure hunt environment at great values. We are happy to provide Petoskey with a local HomeGoods.”
The new HomeGoods will be located between The Home Depot and Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts in Bear Creek Plaza, occupying a space formerly used by MC Sports. That sporting goods chain closed all of its stores in 2017 following a bankruptcy filing.
HomeGoods noted that it expects to fill about 65 full- and part-time employment positions associated with the new store.
Regular store hours for the new HomeGoods will be 9:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday. Special hours for the store’s Oct. 28 grand opening day, which falls on a Sunday, will be 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
The new Petoskey store’s phone number is (231) 348-3997. HomeGoods has a website at www.homegoods.com.
With more than 650 stores around the United States, HomeGoods is a division of The TJX Companies, which also operates off-price retailers such as T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and Sierra Trading Post. The company already has a Marshalls location at Bear Creek Plaza.
