Anthropologie aiming for November 29th opening in Savannah

Anthropologie appears poised to open on November 29th at the corner of Congress and Montgomery streets on Ellis Square in Savannah.

From a Twitter exchange a little while ago:

I know, I know, some of you object to more chains moving into downtown, but Anthropologie is going to be occupying a space that has been vacant since 606 moved out over a decade ago. It’s a key corner too — with Marc Jacobs, other national retailers, and some excellent locally owned stores around the corner on Broughton Street, with City Market a stone’s throw away, and the bustle of Congress Street restaurants and bars in either direction.

A Black Friday opening will be a huge boost to the entire downtown shopping season.
