Frontgate to open first AZ store near Scottsdale

Furniture retailer Frontgate, which sells primarily online and through catalogs, plans to open its first Arizona retail store in the Pavilions at Talking Stick near Scottsdale next month.

De Rito Partners, which manages the shopping center near Indian Bend and Pima roads on the Salt River Reservation, announced Frontgate will open a 32,000-square-foot outlet next to Home Depot in June. The store will be one of only four brick-and-mortar Frontgate outlet stores nationwide, with two others in Ohio and one in Georgia, according to De Rito.

Frontgate is part of Cornerstone Brands and HSN, Inc., a $3 billion company which runs the well-known Home Shopping Network television shopping channel.

Anchor tenants at the Pavilions include Target, Burlington Coat Factory, Sports Authority and Hobby Lobby.
