The Kohler Co. plans to open one of its Kohler Signature Stores near Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.
The company recently leased 5,869 square feet of space at 2525 N. Mayfair Road for the store, according to a press release Friday from Waukesha-based Gerald Nell Inc. Alex Kasun of Gerald Nell was the listing and broker and Sandy Golden of CBRE represented Kohler.
The building at 2525 N. Mayfair Road is on the west side of the road, across from Mayfair Mall. U.S. Cellular, Fitness Together and Family Christian Stores have occupied space in the building recently.
“It’s a prime location,” Kasun said. “(The store) is going to stand out on the street. It’s a really nice concept.”
In 2005 Kohler Co. launched Kohler Stores in the Chicago area. Those stores were successful, so in 2012 Kohler Co. launched its Kohler Signature Store concept.
The first Kohler Signature Store was opened in Edina, Minn. Later, Kohler Signature Stores were added in Baltimore; Natick, Mass.; Burlington, Mass.; Portland, Ore. and Bellevue, Wash. Kohler’s three stores in the Chicago area are now Kohler Signature Stores. Kohler also plans to open a Signature Store in Culver City, Calif.
Kohler Co. representatives also could not immediately be reached for comment for this report.
