Kate Spade New York, Bath & Body Works Headed to 'Fountains'

A Kate Spade New York store may be headed to the Fountains at Farah in East El Paso. Recently filed construction permits indicate a store will open up at the center. It will be its first location in the Sun City.

Job openings have also been posted at career websites indicating open spots for store managers and "muses," what the company calls its sales associates, all but confirming a store is in the works. No official announcement has been made, and no opening date is available.

It is unclear if the Fountains location will be a regular Kate Spade retail store or if it will be an outlet store. Kate Spade New York was founded in 1993 as a handbag seller but now sells women's clothing, jewelry, shoes, and home goods. It operates over 140 shops across the country.

Additionally, a Bath & Body Works store also appears to be headed to the Fountains. The beauty products retailer has also filed permits with the City of El Paso to occupy a space at the center. No official announcement has been made.

The Fountains at Farah is located at 8999 Gateway West Boulevard in East El Paso.
