SLIDELL, La. (AP) - Dillard's will open in the Fremaux Town Center development in Slidell in 2015 as part of a second phase of the shopping center, currently under construction along Interstate 10, developers said.

The department store is the first publicly announced tenant for the development's second phase, where plans call for 320,000 square feet of retail space.

Dillard's will take up 126,000 square feet of that space in a single-level store, according to developers Stirling Properties of Covington and CBL & Associates Properties of Chattanooga, Tenn.

The first phase - 330,000 square feet - is scheduled to open in March 2013.

Construction on the second phase will begin early in 2014 and will take about a year, developers said.

Tenants for the first phase include Dick's Sporting Goods, Best Buy, Rack Room Shoes, PetSmart and T.J. Maxx, among other retailers.

More than 70 percent of the space in that phase has been leased out, developers said.

Dillard's already operates a store in Slidell's North Shore Square shopping mall off Interstate 12.

It wasn't clear Friday whether the company intends to keep that store open. A Dillard's spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
