WAUKESHA — Fashion lovers will soon have another store at The Shoppes at Fox River that can serve their needs.

Torrid, the popular plus-size women's clothing store, recently applied for a permit to place a sign at the shopping center, Charlie Griffith, an associate planner for the city of Waukesha, confirmed Thursday.

According to a property plan on The Shoppes at Fox River’s website, the store will open in a 3,200-squarefoot storefront between Target and Maurices. The storefront had previously been home to Famous Footwear.

Griffin said stores that apply for sign permits typically do so a couple months before opening, which could put the store in line for an October opening date.

Currently the closest Torrid stores to Waukesha are located at Brookfield Square Mall and the Mayfair Collection in Wauwatosa.

A nearly 468,000-square foot retail development, The Shoppes at Fox River is already home to roughly 40 stores, including Target, Hobby Lobby, Petco, Pick ‘n Save, Ulta Beauty and others. Old Navy opened just last month at the shopping development and a Bath & Bodyworks is expected to open later this summer.
