INDIANAPOLIS, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kite Realty Group Trust (NYSE:KRG) ("KRG") announced today that Bluemercury has opened at Rampart Commons in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The luxury beauty retailer joins the lifestyle center's dynamic tenant lineup, including Pottery Barn, Athleta, Williams-Sonoma, Redemption Fitness, Talbots, and Club Champion, along with acclaimed restaurants Honey Salt, North Italia, and Flower Child.  Rampart Commons recently underwent an extensive transformation as part of KRG's 3-R (Redevelopment, Repurpose and Reposition) initiative.  The redevelopment effort created an enhanced consumer experience and has introduced five first-to-market tenants.

"We are excited to open our first Nevada store in Las Vegas and the Rampart Commons shopping center was the obvious choice for us. It has been an exciting challenge to find the exact right location and presence for each new store, as we have transitioned from a best kept secret to an iconic luxury brand and household name. Our mission has always been to bring luxury beauty and skincare to our clients and be the best in the world at giving beauty advice. With this latest Bluemercury store, we bring luxury beauty products to the doorstep of the powerful women of Las Vegas," said Barry Beck, COO & Co-Founder, of Bluemercury.

Rampart Commons is located at the corner of Charleston and Rampart Boulevard in west Las Vegas, within one of the most affluent retail trade areas in the metro area.

"We are thrilled to welcome Bluemercury to Las Vegas," said Mark Jenkins, Senior Vice President of Development at Kite Realty Group Trust.  "It is an excellent addition to the high-quality merchandising mix and compelling shopper experience offered at Rampart Commons."
