KENNER, La — The Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) and the City of Kenner are pleased to celebrate the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony of At Home, the home décor superstore, on Tuesday, July 14. Located in a 90,000 square-foot space at the Pavilion Shopping Center (1000 W. Esplanade Blvd.) in Kenner, this is the first At Home store to open in Louisiana.
The grand opening of At Home marks another victory for retail attraction in Kenner, creating 25 jobs in Jefferson Parish and the surrounding region. JEDCO worked with At Home representatives and the City of Kenner to ensure At Home received a variety of tools and information to aid in the company’s location decision. JEDCO assisted with site selections efforts, supplied demographic and local market data, and offered incentives guidance to the At Home team.
“At Home’s decision to locate its first Louisiana store in Kenner affirms that both Kenner and Jefferson Parish remain preeminent retail destinations in Louisiana,” says Jerry Bologna, JEDCO Executive Director. “We are excited to welcome them and look forward to providing them the resources they need to be successful.”
“This is great news for the city of Kenner and residents and visitors looking for additional shopping opportunities,” says Kenner Mayor Michael S. Yenni. “I also believe this is a strong indication that our 2030 Plan is beginning to gain some real momentum.”
“We’re excited to enter Louisiana and the Kenner market,” said Stacey Sullivan, director of public relations and corporate communications for At Home. “It’s wonderful to see the community so supportive of our entrance into the state.”
Including the new Kenner location, At Home currently operates more than 90 stores across 25 states.
