New Store Openings
As the retail industry continues to evolve, brick-and-mortar remains the preferred shopping destination, allowing customers to touch, feel and interact with products in real-time. Brookfield Properties' retail group supports more than 2,000 new store openings each year, bringing innovative retail concepts to our properties and helping brands find meaningful ways to connect with shoppers. From fashion to beauty to housewares and beyond, we have the breadth of market knowledge to help brands identify the best locations and expansion strategies. Here's a look at some of the new stores that have opened at our properties over the past year:
Wayfair's first-ever brick and mortar location
On November 1, 2018, Wayfair launched their first-ever brick and mortar shop at Natick Mall in Boston, Massachusetts. The holiday pop-up, open from November 1st — January 2nd, allows customers to gain access to Wayfair's innovative new home solutions, learn how to manage home improvement projects and browse more than 100 fabric swatches.

Zara's opening at Pioneer Place marks the brand's very first store in the state of Oregon and its 100th location in the United States.
