It will open at Easton Town Center which is considered to be Columbus’ premiere shopping destination already. Makes perfect sense!

Sue just sent over this article from the Columbus DispatchAmerican Girl doll store to open next summer at Easton Town Center.

From the article:

The 11,500-square foot “experiential” store will open in early summer 2013.

The store will offer historical and contemporary dolls, along with doll outfits, accessories, girl’s clothing and American Girl books. 

The store also will offer a 24-seat bistro, a doll hair salon and a “Creativi-Tees” boutique that will allow visitors to design a doll-sized T-shirt. 

“Our American Girl stores have been praised as leading models for experiential retail for nearly 14 years, and we’re thrilled to continue this success with our new premium location at Easton Town Center,” said Wade Opland, American Girl’s vice president of retail, in a statement.

“The mall’s upscale mix of retail and restaurants is a great fit for our brand and provides us with an amazing opportunity to debut this exciting retail concept to our American Girl fans in the Columbus area, while introducing a whole new audience of girls and families to our brand.”

More details as they become available.
