A new tenant is right at home in the former JCPenney store at Gulf Coast Town Center.
At Home, which brands itself as a home décor superstore, opened today at 10083 Gulf Center Drive. The store is between Costco and SuperTarget in the East Village area of the regional outdoor mall.
Based in Plano, Texas, At Home operates 225 stores in 40 states. Its products include furniture, mirrors, rugs, art, housewares and seasonal decor.
The new store in the Fort Myers area is the first in this region. Until today, the nearest At Home stores were in North Miami, Palm Beach Gardens, Ellenton and Clearwater. The Gulf Coast Town Center store is open 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
The JCPenney store at Gulf Coast Town Center closed in October 2020 when the department store chain shuttered more than 130 locations nationwide.
