Ulta Beauty intends to open in Claire Lane Center in Mandarin.
It would be its ninth area store.
It also has shops within two Target stores with plans for a third at 10490 San Jose Blvd., 1.3 miles north of Claire Lane Center.
The city is reviewing a permit application for Target Contractors Inc. to demolish space at 11112 San Jose Blvd., No. 32-34, for Ulta Beauty. The space is next to Mandola’s Italian Kitchen.
Landlord Sleiman Enterprises shows on its Claire Lane Center brochure that Ulta will lease 8,844 square feet.
The Ulta store will take the former Newk’s Eatery and other vacant space.
Ulta Beauty has stores in The Markets at Town Center, Parkway Shops, Ortega Park, OakLeaf Town Center, South Beach Regional in Jacksonville Beach, Yulee, St. Augustine and The Pavilion at Durbin Park.
It operates a distribution center in Park 295 Industrial Park at Interstate 295 and Duval Road in Northwest Jacksonville.
Ulta Beauty Inc., based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, near Chicago, had 1,343 stores as of Oct. 29, the end of its third quarter.
It is publicly traded.
For the first nine months of fiscal 2022, net sales increased 18% to $7 billion compared with $5.9 billion in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, “primarily due to the favorable impact from the continued resilience of the beauty category, retail price increases, the impact of new brands and product innovation, and the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.”
It increased its outlook for 2022 sales to up to $10 billion.
