From Richmond BizSense:
After an eight-year hiatus, a Brooklyn-based retailer has re-entered the Richmond market.
West Elm, a furniture and home goods shop that’s a subsidiary of Williams-Sonoma, the publicly traded kitchenware company, opened Thursday at 3117 W. Cary St. in the former W. Hirsch Oriental Rugs building in Carytown. It currently has over 85 stores nationwide.
The chain snatched up a lease on the 17,000-square-foot space from the Hirsch family, which owns the building and closed its shop in the spring. It gives West Elm its first store in the region since its run at Short Pump Town Center from 2004 to 2010.
