Opening of a Nike store in Bellevue Square
Nike will open a storefront in Bellevue Square. It will be located on the first level, between Chanel and Madewell.
The store will offer footwear, apparel and accessories. The new space will be 8,883 square feet.
There are currently 250 Nike stores in the United States. This will be the first storefront to open on the Eastside. In recent years, a Nike factory store has opened in Factoria, which offers products from previous seasons or with minor defects.
Chanel is also expected to open adjacent to this location, in fall 2022. The store will focus on fragrances and beauty products like perfume, makeup and sunglasses.
Although vacant since March 2020, this location was previously the Microsoft Store. Microsoft announced in June 2020 that it would close its 83 Microsoft Store outlets. The store opened in Bellevue Square in November 2010.
Microsoft explained that they focused on their online retail store, largely due to the need to adapt during COVID-19. The company said it will continue to invest in digital innovations across software and hardware.
