FORT WALTON BEACH — Ulta Beauty is now open in Uptown Station. The national cosmetics store and salon opened last Friday after several months of construction and anticipation.

"We are thrilled to be a part of the Fort Walton community and open our doors here," said an Ulta Beauty spokesperson. "We look forward to inviting guests of Fort Walton to explore the beautiful possibilities in our stores through the more than 20,000 products and 500 brands we carry."

As for the addition to Uptown Station, Allen Gordon, who overseas new tenants for the shopping center, said he looks forward to what Ulta Beauty brings to the Fort Walton Beach area.

“We’re really excited about it, obviously, having them and also recently Five Below,” Gordon said. “We think they are going to bring a lot more people to the shopping center and hopefully help our tenants who are already there.”

Gordon said at least two tenants moved to other vacancies at Uptown Station to make room for the new store.

“As a project, we have been working on it well over a year,” he said. “There were quite a bit of moving parts in order to make that lease work to accommodate both Ulta and Five Below.”
