ULTA to Join The Shoppes at Parma

Retailer adds new excitement to the PECO Real Estate Partners project

PARMA, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In addition to several recent announcements made, PECO Real Estate
Partners is excited to announce that ULTA will be joining the largest
redevelopment project in Northeast Ohio at The Shoppes at Parma. This
will be ULTA’s first store in Parma. Parma is the 7th largest
city in Ohio, 10-miles to the Southwest of Cleveland.

ULTA is ranked by the National Retail Federation as a Top 100 Retailer
and as one of the industry’s biggest players by domestic retail sales.
As a key retailer in the health and beauty industry, many fashion
retailers look to join a project with ULTA as a co-tenant. Currently the
closest ULTA store is located in Strongsville, more than 8-miles away.
ULTA’s commitment to The Shoppes at Parma demonstrates the strength of
the project’s location within the market place.

As the largest beauty retailer in the United States, ULTA provides
one-stop shopping for prestige, mass and salon products. The new 10,000
square foot store will offer cosmetics, fragrance, haircare products,
skincare, bath and body products and styling tools among other beauty
items. In addition, the store will offer a full-service salon.

“We are thrilled to have ULTA join the redevelopment project,” said
Robyn Hays, Director of Leasing. “ULTA is a nationally recognized brand
that is pivotal to the ongoing successful tenant mix of a redevelopment
this size.”

The addition of ULTA is a major step towards the next phase of the
redevelopment project. The Shoppes at Parma has been successful in
bringing a mix of food and service oriented businesses, as well as
securing long term support from major anchors JCPenney, Dick’s Sporting
Goods, Walmart and Marc’s. Since acquisition, The Shoppes at Parma has
successfully renewed nineteen existing tenants totaling 417,619 square
feet and signed seventeen new leases totaling 127,892 square feet.

“This is an exciting milestone for the project,” said Michelle Devlin,
General Manager. “As a power player in retail, ULTA will become a top
destination for residents of Parma and the surrounding communities.”

“ULTA is one of the stores that our residents have said they wanted to
have here, and I’m glad to see now that we’ll have one here in Parma,”
said Timothy DeGeeter, City of Parma Mayor. “I’m sure this announcement
will be well-received, and we are looking forward to more announcements
that will allow Parma residents to stay closer to home when they shop.”
