Bath and Body Works, which recently closed its store inside the Mall of the Bluffs, will open a new location at Metro Crossing in the spring.
Pine Tree, the Metro Crossing developer, confirmed to the Nonpareil Friday that the fragrant bath, body and home products retailer will open the new Council Bluffs location. Bath and Body Works will be located next door -- to the south -- to the soon-to-open Old Navy, which is opening in the former Bed, Bath and Beyond.
The store was among the other Mall of the Bluffs tenants who were told to vacate by the end of 2019 after Menard Inc. purchased the mall property.
Menards spokesman Jeff Abbott said in early December that the Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based company would build a “bigger and better store" at the site.
