Progress on ULTA Beauty in Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

In the beginning of the year we learned that ULTA Beauty would be coming to the Downtown Pleasant Hill shopping center and the signage is now up as they get closer to opening. They opened several years ago in the Willows shopping center in Concord; I wonder if that location will remain open. Check out their online shop here.
