Madewell, a contemporary women's clothing and accessories chain, will open its second area location.
The retailer is taking a 3,313-square-foot space at 309 Nichols Road on the Country Club Plaza for an August opening. Ann Taylor formerly occupied the space.
Madewell was introduced in 2006 as a “modern-day interpretation” of an American denim label founded in 1937. It specializes in denim and relaxed-casual looks.
A March 18 financial report by parent-company J. Crew Group Inc. said Madewell’s sales increased 35 percent to $245.3 million in the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2015. It has 85 stores, including one in Leawood’s Town Center Plaza.
