Anthem STORIES showcases the return of Waco’s Department Store, and is unlike any other shopping, dining, entertainment, or living experience in Waco.
We’ve not only combined all of these amenities and quality goods under one roof, but raised the roof too, providing breathtaking 360°garden terrace views of the surrounding downtown area.
Inside, every story is unique— each of them leading you to somewhere new—with “Waco’s Department Store” grounding the experience... cradled within 215 linear feet of core city sidewalks.
30 to 40 Exclusive Quality Merchants from near and far will be housed at STORIES to provide the public with a multifaceted, peaceful shopping experience in the Heart of Downtown Waco.
