H&M to open within the mall Sept. 19

HENDERSON, Nev. Earlier this year, the Galleria at Sunset began a mall-wide renovation – its first since the mall opened in 1996. Slated for completion by the end of October, the project is nearly complete, and its economic impact is becoming evident.

With its warm, inviting, spa-like atmosphere, the project itself has brought more than $7 million to Southern Nevada and included improvements to the food court, center court, guest services center and the restrooms. Additional amenities were also added, as was a family restroom equipped with private nursing rooms and family waiting area to cater to the many families that frequent the mall. (Over the past 17 years, the Galleria at Sunset has served as a place for the community, hosting more than 100 community events each year.)

“With sales up nearly every month this year and the mall’s leasing capacity in the mid-to-high 80 percentile, above the national averages, the time was right to move forward with the renovation,” said Heather Valera, director of marketing. “When we opened our doors 17 years ago, the Galleria at Sunset was the premier shopping destination in Southern Nevada. The renovation is allowing us to continue the legacy as Henderson’s community gathering place.”

H&M will open at the Galleria Sept. 19. Known as the hub of Henderson and also the city’s largest indoor shopping mall, the Galleria at Sunset was the perfect location for the worldwide fashion giant.

Express and Bath & Body Works have already opened in their new locations within the mall.

The Galleria at Sunset opened in 1996 and is anchored by Macy’s, JCPenney, Dillard’s, Kohl’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods. It features retailers such as Coach, bebe, Buckle, Forever 21, Abercrombie&Fitch, Victoria’s Secret, Brookstone and more. Owned and operated by Forest City Enterprises, the 1,048,000-square-foot regional shopping center is the only enclosed mall in Henderson and one of the largest in Southern Nevada. In addition to retail, the Galleria at Sunset boasts two full-service and 11 fast food restaurants.
