Annapolis Town Center to add national retailers Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma later this year

Annapolis Town Center announced it’s adding about a half dozen new tenants to its roster of stores in the coming months, including Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma.

The two national retailers will open in late fall 2022, said Anthony Henry, general manager of Annapolis Town Center. Warby Parker, an eyewear brand, is slated to open next month, he said.

“We are thrilled by the caliber of specialty brands joining our tenant family, as I imagine many of our guests will be just as excited to check out the unique furnishings, home décor and eyewear that they will have access to among other exciting new restaurants, shops and events this summer,” Henry said in a news release.

Pottery Barn sells home furnishings and Williams Sonoma sells high-end kitchen and home products. The two retailers are owned by the same parent company, Williams-Sonoma Inc. Both currently have locations at the Westfield Annapolis Mall, which is slated to be sold by next year after its owner, European mall operator Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, announced in March it was leaving the United States.

Firm opening dates for both retailers will be announced soon, Henry said.

A spokesperson for Pottery Barn confirmed in an email the retailer would be moving to Annapolis Town Center later this year. Williams Sonoma did not respond to a request for comment.

Other businesses opening locations at Annapolis Town Center include fitness chain Life Time, and two furniture stores, Summer Classics and Gabby Furniture. A Washington, D.C.-area Tex-Mex restaurant, Urbano Mexican Fare, will open in early 2023, Henry said.

Late last year, the town center began renovating parts of the property, including adding green space, a common area, fire pits, a boathouse pavilion and an ice-skating rink in the wintertime. A traffic circle will be removed to make way for the expanded outdoor space that will feature a pavilion for hosting live music and other events. The project is expected to finish in September, Henry said.

The town center has about 600,000 square feet of retail and office space along with more than 500 residential units.

Texas-based Trademark Property Company took over managing the town center in September 2018 when PGIM Real Estate purchased it from Greenberg Gibbons.
