Hiring in fashion for two new stores in The Valley

PHOENIX – Soft Surroundings, a fashion retailer based in St. Louis, is opening two stores in the Phoenix area and plans to hire 25 for each location. The first store opened earlier this month at Chandler Fashion Park and the second location is scheduled to open at Kierland Commons early next month.

Soft Surroundings provides stylish attire for baby boomer women, in addition to accessories, décor, bedding, furniture and beauty programs. It was founded in 1999 and was initially a catalog and online business.

The retailer opened its first brick-and-mortar location in St. Louis in 2005, and currently operates 25 stores in 15 states. The two locations in The Valley join a third Arizona location already open in Tucson.
