The nationally popular beauty store Sephora will open May 2 at J.C. Penney in the Columbia Mall. 

The store will host a grand opening May 2, including free gift cards worth up to $100 for the first 100 clients and 750 gift bags.


Since the news leaked about Sephora opening a Grand Forks location earlier this year, J.C. Penney has had several excited customers inquire about the beauty store, said Kevin Flynn, store leader.

Sephora is known for its high-end brands such as Smashbox, Philosophy, Dior and Marc Jacobs.

“We are extremely excited to open up a new Sephora in Grand Forks,” Flynn said. With J.C. Penney’s existing salon, Sephora will make the Columbia Mall store a “one-stop beauty destination,” he said.

Sephora will be open during the normal J.C. Penney hours, Flynn said. On the opening day, a Friday, the hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The Grand Forks Sephora will be the 476th Sephora inside a J.C. Penney store, according to a Sephora news release. The Fargo, Minot and Bismarck J.C. Penneys also have Sephora locations.
