Pier 1 Imports will soon call Victoria home.
The company recently signed a lease agreement for Victoria retail space and plans to open the store in late 2011, said Jennifer Engstrand, a spokeswoman with Pier 1 Imports. Plans are subject to change, she added.
The 8,962-square-foot store will go in at 7903 N. Navarro St., in the same strip center as Buffalo Wild Wings, according to city permits.
It's too early in the process to have many details, Engstrand said, but the stores typically employ 12 to 15 associates. That's a mixture of full-time and part-time employees, and can vary depending on the season.
"We're definitely excited to be bringing Pier 1 to Victoria," she said.
