Kansas City specialty department store Halls will close its existing locations and open a new, 60,000-square-foot store at Crown Center Shops. The new store, which will occupy the entire third floor of Crown Center, represents a $10 million investment in the shopping center located near downtown Kansas City.
The new store will include amenities like a cafe, a 5,000-square-foot beauty department and fitting rooms with custom furniture and designer wall coverings.
The existing Halls stores in Crown Center will close in early 2014 to allow for construction of the new store, and the Halls location on the Country Club Plaza will close in late summer 2014. The stores’ 230 full- and part-time staff members will be reduced by about half.
