Farmington’s Westfarms mall has debuted eight new seasonal stores for the holiday shopping season.

Westfarms found room for new vendors, ranging from holiday-themed shops to clothing retailers, in the mostly occupied venue, which houses 160 stores and restaurants. A spokeswoman said the mall, managed by the Taubman Co. LLC., is currently 98 percent leased.

The new seasonal stores include the following:

  • The Gingerbread Workshop: a decorate-your-own gingerbread shop located on the lower level;
  • Christmas Treasures: a store dedicated to selling Christmas-themed products in the upper level of the Macy’s wing;
  • Sheepskin Gifts & Alpaca Too: a store selling specialty made sheepskin and alpaca slippers and sweaters, among other items, in the upper level near center court;
  • Harry & David: a shop selling gift baskets, baked goods, fruit and food gifts in the upper level next to Microsoft;
  • See’s Candies: a candy shop located on the lower level by center court;
  • Huskymania: an official retailer of UConn apparel located in the center court;
  • Squishables: a toy retailer in the lower level in center court;
  • Bluprint: an instructional arts/crafts space in a kiosk located on the lower level of the Macy’s Wing.

Visitors entering Westfarms on the JCPenney side will likely notice a sprawling rooftop solar panel array being built.

As previously reported, the $9.2 million, 2.7-megawatt system is nearing completion and expected to begin operating in early 2020. The solar array is projected to save the mall about 20 percent on its utility bill.

In the last year or so, Westfarms has added a number of food and retail vendors. 

That includes fitness-technology retailer Peloton’s first Connecticut showroom, Texas de Brazil steakhouse and New York apparel company UNTUCKit. The mall also added global retailer Kate Spade New York in summer 2018.
