Tiffany & Co. today announced plans to open a store in Tucson, Arizona, in fall 2006. The approximately 4,000 gross-square-foot store will be located at La Encantada, a premier retail center owned by The Macerich Company, parent company of Westcor Shopping Centers.
Tiffany's new store will offer an array of renowned TIFFANY & CO. collections, including the jeweler's celebrated engagement diamonds and jewels of ultimate glamour in platinum and eighteen-karat gold settings; rare and lustrous pearls; fashion jewelry and watches, including the classic Tiffany Mark(TM) that underscores Tiffany's reputation as one of the world's premier watchmakers; the signature designs of Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso and Jean Schlumberger; as well as accessories, china and crystal gifts.
“Tucson, and La Encantada specifically, is a perfect location for us,” said Beth O. Canavan, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “The center is designed in the traditional mission style with indigenous materials and surrounded by the desert's natural beauty, which reflects Tiffany's own design heritage that is rooted in the American landscape. We think residents and the many tourists drawn to Tucson's world-class resorts and outdoor lifestyle will appreciate this heritage, and the quality and craftsmanship that has sustained it for generations.”
“We're delighted to welcome Tiffany & Co. to La Encantada,” said Tracey Gotsis, Senior Vice President of Development Marketing for the Macerich Company. “The only true luxury shopping experience in the region, La Encantada is the perfect home for Tiffany's world-class brand. Our discerning shoppers, including upscale residents, tourists from around the world and elite Mexican Nationals, will be thrilled to add Tiffany to their list of luxury shopping experiences in Tucson.”
