Marshalls plans to open Inner Harbor store in early 2013

Discount retailer Marshalls plans to open in the former Filene's Basement spot at the Inner Harbor early next year.

The national chain, known for selling brand-name apparel at a discount, signed a lease for more than 31,000 square feet at Lockwood Place on East Pratt Street, David S. Brown Enterprises Ltd., the center's manager, said Tuesday.

National retailer Filene's filed for bankruptcy protection last year and closed all of its stores. The Inner Harbor Filene's closed in January.

Marshalls, part of TJX Cos. Inc., will open on the second floor of the three-story, 90,000-square-foot Lockwood Place, also home to restaurants P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse and Panera Bread. Best Buy closed a store at Lockwood and another in Hunt Valley in May as part of a move to shut 50 locations across the country.

Marshalls runs nearly 900 stores in the United States, including Baltimore-area locations at Towson Marketplace, Snowden Square in Columbia, Annapolis Plaza and the Village at Waugh Chapel.

"Marshalls is a widely recognized and highly regarded retailer with a proven concept that brings tremendous affordability to brand-name fashions," Howard Brown, chairman of Owings Mills developer David S. Brown, said in a statement. The company is developing Metro Centre at Owings Mills and also built the Symphony Center luxury apartments in Baltimore.

Brown said he expected Marshalls to become a "destination retailer," attracting office workers and residents in downtown neighborhoods.
