The chic, modern, home decor store, Z Gallerie is gone at The Village in Meridian, but someone else is moving in! Here's who it is!

Columbia Sportswear is getting ready to set up shop in the now vacant spot near Big Al's at The Village.

Construction to the existing space begins next week to remodel the store for Columbia Sportswear, which should be open sometime in the Spring.

According to boisedev.com, Columbia Sportswear said back in August that they were going to be located near Cafe Zupas, but as it turns out Z Gallerie came to an agreement to terminate their lease allowing Columbia Sportswear to move in.

If you aren't familiar with Columbia Sportswear, it should be a perfect fit for all of our Idaho outdoor enthusiasts. They have 11 stores across the country and dozens of outlet stores but until now they haven't been in Idaho. The closest store is in Portland.

So it is, out with the old and in with the new! Welcome, Columbia Sportswear!
