CERRITOS, Calif. ― April 21, 2010 ― Just weeks from its anticipated opening date of May 7, 2010, Los Cerritos Center today announced that another new name, Lazy Dog Cafe, will join the line-up for the center's new expansion.
When the expansion opens on May 7, Los Cerritos Center will introduce a new, 139,000-square foot Nordstrom store and 36,400 square feet of new in-line stores, including already announced retailers, True Religion, M.A.C Cosmetics, Foreign Exchange, Love Culture, Carlton Hair and Vision Shoes. Lazy Dog Cafe plans to open in 2011.
"Our expansion at Los Cerritos Center is about more – more fashion, more dining, more brands – in response to strong demand from this market. Lazy Dog Cafe will help us offer a more complete experience for shoppers and another great dining option," said Ken Kraus, property manager for Los Cerritos Center.
The Lazy Dog Cafe at Los Cerritos Center will be the eighth location of the Southern California concept that combines a comfortable, contemporary atmosphere with an internationally-inspired menu.
Los Cerritos Center continues to demonstrate a strong draw for new retailers. Most recently, Forever 21 chose Los Cerritos Center for one of its largest stores to date, a new, 86,000-square foot department-store concept that opened in January 2010 in the former Mervyns space. Once Nordstrom opens in its new location, the original Nordstrom building at the shopping center also will offer new opportunities for additional retail uses.
The new stores will open at 10 a.m. Friday, May 7. The shopping center will celebrate the new expansion with a "Light Up Cerritos" event at 7 p.m. on Friday to introduce a new sculpture by Brian Tolle, a well known creator of public art who is a faculty member at the New School in New York City. Shoppers may also enter a $10,000 sweepstakes at www.InspireYourStyle.com through May 24, and enjoy gift-with-purchase offers and a special Spring Essentials Savings Guide
May 7 - 9.
