Retailer Saks Incorporated today announced it has acquired two store locations from Montgomery Ward & Co.

The company has purchased the 91,400 sq ft Apache Mall store in Rochester, Minnesota and the 148,900 sq ft Bay Park Square store in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin (metropolitan Green Bay).

The Apache Mall location will be renovated and opened as a Carson Pirie Scott store in fall 2002. The company will open a Younkers store in the Bay Park Square centre at a date yet to be determined, either in late 2002 or in 2003.

Sak's Carson Pirie Scott and Younkers stores carry a wide selection of fashion apparel, shoes, and accessories, as well as cosmetics, decorative home furnishings, and specialty gift items.
