The Porterville Marketplace will be home to a couple of new retail stores in the early months of 2020. Bath and Body Works and The White Barn have posted signs up at the former Payless Shoe Source location, neighboring Don Roberto Jewelers, announcing their arrival in February 2020.

So the Porterville Marketplace which features Target, Kohl’s and Marshalls will also feature Bath and Body Works and The White Barn.

Bath and Body Works, proudly labels itself as America’s Favorite Fragrance shop and will bring all of its famous fragrances to the city. Located in the same location will be The White Barn, which features home fragrance collections with candles and concentrated room sprays.

Both of the stores will be at the former Payless location but will have separate entrances. Once inside the store, customers will be able to browse through both stores without having to exit either of them.

“The city is pleased to have Bath and Body Works and its very popular selection of bath, body and home fragrance products come to Porterville Marketplace shopping center, and is appreciative of Paynter Realty as the developer for their consistent efforts to provide the community brand retail options,” Porterville City Manager John Lollis said. “The city is continuously engaged in proactive retail recruitment with local developers in expanding our community’s retail choices, and is especially proud of its award-winning collaboration and partnership with Paynter Realty.”
