Henri Bendel Coming to Pentagon City Mall

Henri Bendel, an upscale women’s specialty store, is coming to the Pentagon City mall.

The NYC-based retailer currently operates 11 stores nationwide, including its flagship Manhattan store on Fifth Avenue. Founded in 1895, Henri Bendel sells fashion accessories, cosmetics, fragrances, gifts and gourmet foods. It stopped selling clothing in 2009.

The company says it expects the Pentagon City store to open in September 2011. The store itself is located on the second level, next to Victoria’s Secret.
