Robert Redford’s Sundance opens Mosaic District store

WASHINGTON — Sundance, the small retail chain specializing in apparel, jewelry, art and home decor founded by actor-director Robert Redford, has opened a store in the Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia.

The store is at 2910 District Ave., in the same building that houses an Anthropologie store.

Sundance began as a catalog business in 1989. In addition to its seasonal catalogs there are now 12 retail stores, including 10 that have opened since 2015.

The Salt Lake City-based company has other stores in the following locations:

  • Corte Madera, California
  • Lone Tree, Colorado
  • Edina, Minnesota
  • Dallas
  • Southlake, Texas
  • Scottsdale, Arizona
  • Tigard, Oregon
  • San Diego
  • Alpharetta, Georgia
  • Leewood, Kansas
  • Nashville
  • Deer Park, Illinois
  • Salt Lake City (outlet store).

“Sundance” is a name used by several of Redford’s endeavors, a nod to his character in the 1969 move with Paul Newman, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

As part of its new Fairfax store, Sundance will donate a portion of proceeds from its grand opening weekend to nonprofit McLean Project for the Arts. This weekend is the grand opening.

There is now a diverse mix of 31 retailers at the Mosaic District, ranging from Target to Alex and Ani, as well as more than 30 fast-casual and formal restaurants.

There is also a multi-screen cinema, apartments, townhomes and a hotel.
