Dillard's Department Store will build a new 125,000 square foot store and become an anchor at Pier Park in Panama City Beach.
Developers, Simon Properties, said Thursday the new Dillard's will feature a broad selection of merchandise offering the latest in fashion for the family and home.
Dillard's at Pier Park will reflect the company's renewed focus on an upscale approach to the marketplace both in store design and merchandise selection.
Richard Sokolov, president and chief operating officer of the Simon Property Group said, "The arrival of Dillard’s demonstrates that Pier Park will be Panama City Beach's premier retail destination."
Plus, we have also learned that J.C. Penney will also be another of the main anchor stores at Pier Park. It hasn't been announced yet, but will be in the next few days, possibly as early as Friday.
P.C.B. former Mayor Lee Sullivan says of the news, "That vibrancy along with the construction is something that everybody in the county, but especially Panama City Beach is excited to see."
