The Fountains location will replace one less than a mile away at the Viscount Village shopping center. Another store which had a location at the center, Best Buy, also relocated to the Fountains. The two large, vacant spaces sandwich a store still open at Viscount Village.

Barnes & Noble’s new store is approximately 27,000 square feet and is located next to Dick’s Sporting Goods on the upper level at the Fountains at Farah. The book retailer has one other location in the city on the west side.

Another retailer, Rack Room Shoes, had a soft opening on October 3, but will celebrate a grand opening on October 19 with promotions and giveaways. The first 100 customers that day will receive unspecified gifts, and a $100 gift card will be raffled away.

The 15,000 square foot store is also located on the upper big-box area. It is the fourth Rack Room Shoes location in El Paso. 

Other Fountains stores and restaurants have had soft openings or will open soon. Ulta Beauty is already open, the third El Paso location. Twin Peaks Restaurant will open this week, according to its Facebook page. And TJ Maxx/HomeGoods opened this past weekend.

Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy, and Stein Mart became the first stores to open at the center last month.
