A new Vera BradleyFactory store opened recently at the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets.
The storefront, measuring 3,500 square feet, is located between the Jockey and Arie shops at 11601-108th Street. The store is currently seeking two full-time, and ten part time positions.
Vera Bradley also has two locations in Wisconsin: a full line store at Mayfair Mall, Wauwatosa, and a factory shop at The Outlets of The Dells, Baraboo. Its products can be found at numerous independent retailers throughout the state. Vera Bradley has 145 stores nationwide.
The Fort Wayne, Indiana-based women’s fashion brand carries a large selection of cotton quilted luggage, handbags, accessories, and gifts, featuring the label’s iconic patters and bright colors. Vera Bradley was an iconic brand that had a presence at major U.S. shopping centers. However, as online sales have increased, Vera Bradley has had to reduce its footprint.
The Pleasant Prairie store is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
