Anthropologie, an upscale women's retailer, is coming to Utica Square.

Officials of the shopping center have been working for months on the deal and received a signed lease Friday, said Jessica Judd, a property manager for Helmerich & Payne Inc., which owns the property.

"We're so excited about Anthropologie joining the Utica Square family," Judd said. "We can't convey how proud we are for them to have picked us."

The store will be located in a 7,500-square-foot space formerly occupied by Harold's, next to Pottery Barn. It is expected to open this fall.

The Utica Square location will be the first store in Oklahoma for Anthropologie, a subsidiary of Philadelphia-based Urban Outfitters Inc., which owns retailers Urban Outfitters and Free People.

Anthropologie sells clothing and accessories, catering to women 30 to 45, according to the company's Web site. It also carries some home furnishings, gifts and decor.

The retailer has been working on hiring a staff for the Tulsa store and conducted interviews this week for management positions, according to job postings on its Web site. Anthropologie officials did not return phone calls to the Tulsa World this week.

Harold's, an apparel retailer from Norman, closed its Utica Square store when the 60-year-old company filed for bankruptcy in 2008.
