Two New Stores Opening in Bowie Town Center

Francesca's Collections and Fashion to Figure are both set to open this spring.

Although the recent closing of the Old Navy at Bowie Town Center has dismayed many residents, two new tenants will open up storefronts in the shopping center this spring.

Francesca’s Collections, a women’s clothing, jewelry and accessory store, is slated to up a 1,500 square foot store in Bowie Town Center in April, according to a press release. The store will sit at the corner of Emerald Way and Town Center Boulevard, just across from the food court.  

The second new retailer, Fashion to Figure is also set to open in early spring. This store specializes in selling “up-to-the-minute fashion trends at the best prices” in plus sizes, according to a press release. The 3,100 square foot store will be located near Macy’s.

Francesca's Collections is new to Prince George's County. Fashion to Figure also has a store in the Mall at Prince George's.

What do you thinkg of these two new stores coming to Bowie Town Center? Will you shop there?

Francesca's is a great store, much better quality of clothing than the other stores at BTC like Wet Seal and Gussini, so it'll be a definite step in the right direction!

I do go to Annapolis to their Francesca's. The store is unique and I will be happy to support the one in Bowie.

I went to Francesca's Saturday and Sunday -- very nice store!!! Like Angela said above, it is very unique and is a nice addition, MUCH better than "Trendsetter" (which is next door) or Wet Seal. I hope it stays. One of the Manager's there said Francesca's had a lot of foot traffic on Sat, but not much in the way of sales. I also hope American Eagle doesn't leave BTC, b/c I LOVE their store. Ann Taylor Loft is leaving BTC in January.

They're hardly "taking out big name stores." That is if the "they" you referred to is Bowie Town Center. The stores are leaving of their own accord because they don't make enough money in BTS. If more residents would shop there -- and if the local paper would be bothered to highlight this issue -- we could keep quality businesses!

If the owners of the BTC were willing to negotiate thier lease prices the big names like Old Navy and Bed, Bath, and Beyond would have stayed in place. They were not willing to negotiate and because of that more stores are planning to leave in the very near future.
