At Home Group has opened its first new stores of the year.

The value home décor retailer opened three stores on Feb. 3: Nanuet, N.Y.; Johnstown, Col.; and Ocean Township, N.J. At Home will also open a store in San Jose, Calif., later this month.  

The new additions will give the retailer a total of 222 locations in 40 states by the end of February. The company plans to open 12 to 15 stores across the country this year.

“We are thrilled to continue toward our long-term potential of operating 600-plus stores in the U.S.,” said Lee Bird, chairman and CEO, At Home. “Our business has never been stronger and there is enormous growth potential for At Home. With the success of the last three quarters, we continue to take significant market share and emerge as a major winner in the home décor space.”

At Home stores average about 100,000 sq. ft. and sell more than 50,000 home décor, from furniture, rugs, wall art and housewares to tabletop, patio and holiday décor.
