Eddie Bauer, New Balance, Chipotle, Island Purveyor coming to Fayette Mall

Work continued on the demolition/conversion of the former Sears store at Fayette Mall, 3401 Nicholasville Rd. in Lexington, Ky., Monday, March 8, 2014.  The 150,000 square foot Sears, which closed in January, was an anchor for the original mall, built in 1971. When the south wing was added in 1993, the store became a pass-through between the original and new sections of the mall. A new covered hallway has been constructed to allow patrons access to the entire mall. Part of the new hallway goes through a section of the old Sears and part goes outside.

Fayette Mall is adding four retailers: Eddie Bauer, New Balance, Chipotle and Island Purveyor Featuring Tommy Bahama.

The additions are part of the mall's middle wing redevelopment, which includes as a centerpiece the wildly popular The Cheesecake Factory, which will open Oct. 28.

For Eddie Bauer, the outdoorsy casual clothing chain, this will be its second time through Fayette Mall. It opened its first store in 1997 but closed in 2008.

The new Eddie Bauer and New Balance stores will open in November as part of the mall's grand opening of its middle wing redevelopment, mall officials announced Friday. New Balance, which sells athletic shoes, will be next to The Cheesecake Factory.

Island Purveyor and Chipotle, a Mexican grill, will open in early 2015, according to a news release from Fayette Mall's owner-manager, CBL & Associates Properties of Chattanooga.

Eddie Bauer and Island Purveyor, which sells upscale casual clothing for men and women, will be in the new middle wing.

Chipotle will be in the front of the middle wing near Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar. Travinia's Fayette Mall restaurant was announced in August. Travinia started in Greenville, S.C., in 2002 and operates 13 restaurants featuring Italian-style food, steaks, chops and seafood, plus an extensive wine list and a gluten-free menu.

The mall also announced in August that the stores Janie and Jack, an upscale children's chain owned by the Gymboree Corp., and Vera Bradley, which sells brightly patterned women's handbags, luggage and gifts, also would open at the mall.

H&M, the "fast fashion" giant, will open Nov. 7.

Fayette Mall is a 1.4 million-square-foot regional mall with more than 150 stores and restaurants.

It is anchored by Dillard's, Macy's, JC Penney and Dick's Sporting Goods.
