Anthropologie has announced the date for its move from The Mall at Lexington Green to The Summit at Fritz Farm. The Lexington Green store will close on Aug. 19, with the new store scheduled to open Sept. 1.

The chain, known for its eclectic mix of home décor, women’s apparel and accessories, opened in 2013 at The Mall at Lexington Green. It joins other former Lexington Green businesses — Whole Foods, and lululemon athletica — that moved to The Summit earlier this year.

Later this month, Anthropologie partners with Liberty London for a new collection of furniture featuring the British company’s iconic floral prints. Look for 40 pieces, including chairs and sofas, plus bedding and accessories, Aug. 14 at and select stores.
