The Village at Meridian is adding three new retail stores and a restaurant later this year.

Athleta, Bodovino, Hope Ave. and Ulta Beauty are all anticipated to be open by late summer, with some locations opening later this spring.

Hope Ave. is a boutique shop that carries fashionable and functional clothing for women. Started in Salt Lake City, Hope Ave. has since expanded to eight cities. Their new location will be across from Charming Charlie and Gymboree and next to Fleet Feet Sports, officials said.

Athleta is a fitness fashion brand for women who see the importance of being healthy and fit. Athleta will be located across from The Buckle.

Hope Ave. and Athleta will both open in late spring.

Featuring its famous wine-dispensing machines and an expanded food menu, Bodovino will open its second Treasure Valley location in the glass pavilion next to the children’s playground and Kona Grill. Bodovino will offer its customers retracable doors that will give them access to the Village’s popular Fountain Square.

Ulta Beauty offers thousands of salon products from over 500 brands plus a salon featuring hair, skin and brow services. Ulta Beauty is moving into the newly-constructed space next to the Boise Co-op and Michael’s at The Village. This will be its seventh Idaho location, which is anticipated to open in the second half of the year.

“Spring always brings additional excitement and activity to The Village, so we’re excited to add even more shopping and dining options for our guests to enjoy,” said Hugh Crawford, General Manager of The Village at Meridian.

The Village at Meridian sits on approximately 100 acres on Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue, one of the busiest traffic intersections in the state.
