Correction: A previous version of this story called restaurant Flower Child by the wrong name. It is fixed below.
Two major retailers will be moving within Cherry Creek Shopping Center, freeing up more real estate on the mall’s west end for future development.
Macy’s Furniture Gallery and The Container Store will be moving from the west side of the mall to the east, according to city building permits.
The two stores will move into the building that previously housed Safeway and Rite Aid, which is currently fenced off.
A spokeswoman for The Container Store declined to comment. Macy’s did not respond to requests for comment.
Macy’s Furniture and The Container Store have been the two largest tenants on the west side of the mall since Bed Bath & Beyond closed its store in November, decamping for Glendale.
The pending relocation will leave only Boulder Running Co. and two restaurants – BRIO Tuscan Grille and Elway’s Cherry Creek – on the west side.
One other tenant is scouting a potential spot on the east side of the mall. Several sources familiar with the real estate said Phoenix restaurant Flower Child has been looking at the location.
Flower Child declined to comment. Mall general manager Nick LeMasters declined to comment on plans for the west side.
