“Easton Town Center has changed the game for shopping in Columbus, and we know that it will be a wonderful home for the Free People brand.”
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Specialty clothing brand, Free People, will be opening its 87th boutique at Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio on November 22nd, 2013. The 3,300 square foot store will open its doors just in time for the holiday season, joining the center’s recently opened district, Fenlon Square.
Among the holiday product, shoppers will find an assortment of specialty gifts, including gluten free and vegan cookies, henna-design candles, and patchwork holiday stockings. Free People’s apparel assortment will be filled with knits and uniquely patterned sweaters alongside scarves, ponchos, beanies, and socks. For Holiday, the boutique will offer a beautiful range of holiday dresses and skirts with touches of sparkle and embellishment, in addition to a collection of tomboy-inspired black and white wovens, knits, and embellished pants and denim. To pair back with the party attire an assortment of brilliant necklaces and bags will top it all off.
The new location has been designed with the brand’s ‘Boho Bungalo’ concept. The look and feel represents Free People’s globe traveling girl and the collections that she curates and displays within her environment. Immediately upon entering, a Bhutti glass lantern sets the tone while an eye-catching pitched wood ceiling designed and created especially for this boutique makes the space feel cozy and inviting. The rustic feel is continued with accents of natural carving and rough sawn wood, glitter adorned walls, and an elevated dressing room area.
“We are excited to be joining such an incredibly successful lifestyle center within Columbus, as well as a premier shopping destination throughout the Midwest,” says Beth Wehagen, Free People Director of Stores. “Easton Town Center has changed the game for shopping in Columbus, and we know that it will be a wonderful home for the Free People brand.”

Customers can also get inspiration online with FP Me, Free People’s brand new style Community that offers fans a way to share their personal style, create looks, curate collections, and interact with one another.
