Scottsdale Quarter is adding four more stores to its ever-expanding elite lineup of tenants. Albion Fit, Amazon Books and MIXT are a part of the newly constructed L Block of Phase III, located on the east end of the mall between 73rd Place and 73rd Street. Candle Chemistry is located on the north end of the mall, on North Street. Albion Fit, Amazon Books and Candle Chemistry each recently opened in November and MIXT is slated to open in spring of 2020.
Husband-wife duo, Liz and Dave Findlay started Albion Fit in 2012 with their background in manufacturing and design. The company makes high-end, luxe swimsuits for every BODY and lifestyle and fitness apparel for the mom, the professional and the woman on the go. Albion Fit relocated their store from the south end of the property to the new storefront on 73rd Place in mid-November.
After 20 years of being an online retailer that is dedicated to customer service, Amazon has moved into the brick-and-mortar side of business. The store combines the benefits of online and offline shopping by providing books, devices, toys, games and more that are either rated 4 stars and above, are bestsellers, or are new releases. Amazon Books is open to everyone, but Amazon Prime members pay Amazon.com prices in store. Amazon Books opened in mid-November.
Earlier this year, twins, Laurie Guidi and Ron Jones, and their spouses, Chris and Salina, combined their unique industry backgrounds to start a candle-making company, Candle Chemistry. The concept of Candle Chemistry is to create personalized scents in-store that are perfect as signature scents, as gifts to loved ones, or as just a fun experience customers can take home with them. The family-run business opened their first store at Scottsdale Quarter in early November.
