Some of the first stores in the Baker Katz shopping center in Brenham will soon be opening.
The Burkes Outlet website lists a grand opening for its new location in Brenham, at 918 Highway 290 East, on February 10th.
Brenham | Washington County Economic Development Director Susan Cates confirmed that Burkes Outlet pulled its final certificate of occupancy earlier this week. She said the store is being stocked in preparation for its opening.
Cates noted the banner currently outside the store says it is now open, but that is not the case.
Cates did not have a timeline for the opening of other stores. There is a banner outside the Five Below store that says a grand opening is planned for April 15th, but no online information for a Brenham location is listed on the Five Below website.
Other confirmed businesses in the shopping center include Hobby Lobby, Marshalls, PetSmart and Aspen Dental.
Construction is ongoing, and other stores are expected to open this spring.
