MEYER MOVING IN UTAH: Fred Meyer has stepped up its expansion and remodeling plans in Utah. The company, based in Portland, Ore., will open supercenters, including general merchandise and full-service food departments, in West Jordan and downtown Salt Lake City. Each will be 165,000 square feet, and each is slated to open by the end of next year.
In addition, the retailer is modernizing five of its existing stores in Utah and adding full-service food departments to them. This year, remodeling should be completed in Taylorsville and Holladay and, in 1995, in Granger, Ogden and Logan.
The company will end 1994 with a total of five new stores and seven major remodels, and plans six new stores and eight remodels in 1995.
THREE TAPPED AT MAC FRUGAL'S: Mac Frugal's Bargains-Close-outs Inc., Dominguez, Calif., has named Kathie Kaufman, John Johnson and Jim Lehman vice presidents. Kaufman continues over apparel; Johnson retains responsibility for food, health and beauty aids, toys, housewares and domestics, and Lehman remains in charge of imports.
BIG BUSINESS AT SEARS: Sears Shop at Home Services has added a special-sizes catalog to its roster of specialty catalogs
The new book, called Woman's View, offers women's apparel sizes 14 to 52, depending on the item, and footwear in sizes ranging from 6 medium to 14 triple E, again, depending on the style. The catalog will be mailed monthly and range from 72 to 100 pages.
Sears developed the book with Brylane LP, an Indianapolis-based direct marketer of women's special sizes. Brylane was one of the catalog divisions of The Limited, which sold a 60 percent stake in the operation last year.

The show marked the start of Sands Macao Fashion Week, which runs from October 19 to 24 — the city’s first such event.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
