San Francisco-based beauty products retailer Sephora will open a store in March at 289 King St. in downtown Charleston, according to a store clerk.
The space was vacated last year by Bebe clothing and accessories shop.
Sephora specializes in high-end makeup, hair, skincare and other grooming products for women and men.
The full, standalone Sephora retail store will be a first for the Charleston area, though a smaller selection of Sephora products can now be found inside J.C. Penney at Northwoods Mall in North Charleston.
The makeup chain will add to the burgeoning beauty retail landscape in downtown Charleston, joining similar high-end stores Bluemercury and Cos Bar.
