A beauty store chain has found a new home in College Point.
Construction laborers are working on a new building on the College Point shopping center lot along 20th Avenue that will be home to an Ulta Beauty Store. The work is expected to be completed in June 2018, according to signage posted onsite.
According to filings with the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB), the store at 133-05 20th Ave. will be approximately 9,000 square feet. The site is located near Petco and ShopRite.
Customers can find a selection of makeup, nail, hair and skin products at Ulta Beauty Stores. Ulta locations are also known for offering a variety of beauty services, including nail care and hair blowouts. The chain also has online store.
The College Point location will be Ulta’s third shop in Queens. One is already operating in the Shops at Atlas Park in Glendale and another at the Rego Center on Junction Boulevard.
The shopping center is already home to a number of retailers, including Target, ShopRite and BJ’s Wholesale.
Staples, which operated in a building adjacent to the future Ulta site, closed on Oct. 7. The space is approximately 24,0000 square feet.
The office supply chain still operates at locations in Bayside and Jackson Heights.
Ulta is not the only beauty store chain to expand its presence in the “World’s Borough” lately. Sephora opened up a brand-new location at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center in September.
