There was great sadness in the Cooper house when Borders Books & Music closed in Winchester, VA. We're all veracious readers, and Borders was one of our favorites suppliers for our addiction. But, the Internet has come to our rescue and everyone continues to indulge in the addition.
The Border's building sat empty since early 2011, but that's about to end. Two retailers have decided to split the space and open in Winchester. Five Below, is a retailer that caters to teenagers with low-cost items is taking up part of the space. Their own description is, "Five Below is the leading retailer of trend-right, extreme-value merchandise to the teen and pre-teen market – all for $1.00 to $5.00."
Five Below was the brainchild of former Zany Brainy CEO, Tom Vellios. Five Below has 205 stores in 17 states. They anticipate climbing to 212 stores before the end of 2012. For anyone looking for a job in a trendy retail store should contact Five Below @ Five Below Jobs.
The second tenant of the Borders space will be Ulta, a beauty supply store. Ulta has 467
locations throughout the U.S. They call themselves a "one stop shop" because of their 20,000 products that covers all aspects of beauty, skin care and grooming supplies, and those supplies are for women and men. The company has been around since 1990, and the are known for building in high traffic areas. The former Borders site is perfect for Ulta.
Ulta will also be looking for new employees to work at this new store. They have not released the number of employees needed, but they have an application process on their website. Interested people can apply at Ulta Jobs. Winchester, VA welcomes Five Below and Ulta to the community. We're glad you're here.
