Housewares retailer Crate & Barrel is closing its store in Woodfield Mall next week and opening a larger location nearby in February.
Vicki Lang, a spokeswoman for the Northbrook-based chain, said Crate & Barrel will close its Woodfield store Jan. 24 and open Feb. 11 in a much larger space at 760 N. Martingale Rd., just west of the Streets of Woodfield shopping center.
The new store is 26,000 square feet and can accommodate Crate & Barrel’s furniture collection. The old location was limited to housewares because it wasn’t large enough for Crate & Barrel’s full range of merchandise, Lang said.
“We had an opportunity to open up a new store in that neighborhood, where we’ve had such dedicated customers,” she said. “They’ve been an important part of our Chicago customer base.”
