Free People will open at Galleria next year. The bohemian chic brand, which is part of the Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters family, will take the space that is about to be vacated by longtime retailer Epitome and Epitome Papers, says Galleria general manager Jerry Cohen.
Free People caters to the younger, aspirational shoppers Galleria has been trying to attract. At its Mall of America store, Free People has hosted many popular local bloggers and artists for lifestyle events. The brand is known for its artfully merchandised spaces. Cohen says Galleria will get Free People's latest design, just debuted at NorthPark Center in Dallas.
