Station Park in Farmington has added a few more businesses to its directory, including Columbia Sportswear, which is holding its grand opening and ribbon cutting on June 21.

“We are excited to bring the Columbia Sportswear brand to a city so well connected to the outdoor lifestyle,” said David Lawner, SVP Direct to Consumer in a press release. “Our store at Station Park will offer a great selection of sportswear, outerwear, footwear and accessories for the entire family, so whether you need gear for every day or for your next special adventure, come check it out.”

The grand opening, from 9:30-11 a.m. June 21 and 4-6 p.m. June 22, will include a story slam, food and giveaways.

Other retailers and occupants also listed by Station Park as coming soon include:

Barnes & Noble: The company was purchased in June from a hedge fund after a tumultuous year. According to the New York Times, the company has closed more than 150 locations in the last 10 years.

F45, a fitness training facility that combines high-intensity interval training (HIIT), circuit training and functional training

P.F. Changs restaurant: There are currently only two other locations in Utah, Salt Lake City and Orem

Re/Max Associates

REI also shared plans for its opening in the fall 2019 at Station Park. The business will occupy a 23,000 square feet space, making it the third location in Utah. According to a press release, REI Farmington will offer a specialty bike, ski and snowboard shop for customers to tune or repair their equipment before heading outside.

“We are thrilled to be adding our third location in Utah and continue to serve our more than 314,000 lifetime REI members in the state,” said Janet Hopkins, REI retail director for the mountain district, in a press release. “It’s no secret that Utah is one of the best places in the country to access the outdoors and we look forward to connecting locals and visitors to the many iconic outdoor spaces in the region.”

Most recently, Farmington has been working to draw support for the build out of an arena venue at Station Park. The city’s pitch is contingent on the approval of an extension to an existing Redevelopment Area (RDA) at Station Park, which would pave the way for an arena to be built.

Station Park’s RDA was created with a tax increment cap of $18.5 million, which was set with the promise that Station Park would generate $80 million in tax revenue over the 20-year lifespan of the original RDA. It has instead generated a whopping $350 million in tax revenue thus far.
