Garden State Plaza to Add Nine New Retailers

by Harry Sheff


Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J. is adding nine new branded retailers between May and September: Burberry, Ferragamo, Hugo Boss, Longchamp, Michael Kors and Michael Kors Men, The North Face and Versace.

The new stores are in addition to the mall’s Fashion District, a two-level, 55,000 sq. ft. expansion that opened in March 2014 with 23 retailers.

Garden State Plaza, the largest mall in New Jersey, is currently anchored by Macy’s, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. Despite being closed on Sundays because of local blue laws, the mall is among the most profitable per square foot in the country. The mall was originally developed in 1958 by Macy’s; Westfield acquired it from Macy’s in 1986.
