Stein Mart to open stores in Citrus Heights, Rocklin

Discount clothing retailer Stein Mart announced Wednesday that it will open two new Sacramento-area stores on Oct. 2.

The stores will open in shopping complexes at 6130 Birdcage Center Drive in Citrus Heights and at 5116 Commons Drive, at Interstate 80 and Sierra College Blvd., in Rocklin.

The new 34,000-square-foot Citrus Heights store will open in a space previously occupied by Linens ‘N Things. The 32,000-square-foot Rocklin store is a relocation from the nearby Blue Oaks Town Center to the newly constructed Rocklin Commons center.

“Sacramento is one of the key areas our management team has focused on to increase our store count,” said Jay Stein, CEO of Stein Mart.

Stein Mart also has stores in Folsom and Elk Grove.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based Stein Mart has more than 250 stores nationwide. Besides clothing, in-store merchandise includes home accessories/décor items, linens and shoes.
