Sephora to move into one section of the vacant Abercrombie and Fitch store

Edited to change the status of the NorthTown Mall store.

There's progress at last in filling the second-floor space last used by retailer Abercrombie and Fitch inside downtown Spokane's River Park Square.

Sephora, a retailer of beauty care products, will take about half of the 8,000 square feet in the vacant space, the RPS Facebook page noted.

Sephora looks to open in the spring. Without an official Sephora announcement, this looks to be a relocation from the former Sephora in NorthTown Mall. That location is no longer there, according the the NorthTown Mall site.

The usual disclaimer: Cowles Co. operates the Spokesman-Review, and is also the company that owns and runs the River Park Square mall.

No word yet on who else might use the remaining part of the former Abercrombie store. Abercrombie didn't renew its lease back in January 2011. Since then occasional short-term tenants have used part of the large space directly opposite the Verizon store.
