CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Management at SouthPark Mall announced Thursday the addition of several new retailers.
David Yurman, a fine jewelry and luxury timepiece designer, will open a 1,800 square foot store in the Nordstrom wing in October of this year.
Ann Taylor, a high-quality women's clothing brand, will be reopening their doors in a 4,300 square foot, newly renovated space next to Sephora. Ann Taylor's doors are expected to open sometime this Spring.
These new additions come on the heels of newly-opened stores like the German-based luxury brand, Porsche Design, Tara Grinna Swimwear and Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
The July 20, 2012 collapse shut down at least a dozen stores in the mall, Banana Republic and GAP suffering the brunt of the damage. The GAP reopened in a new location within the shopping center just two weeks later.
Eight months after torrential rains caused part of the roof to collapse, flooding SouthPark Mall, crews are still working to get things back to normal.
What else is happening at SouthPark Mall? Banana Republic has not yet reopened their doors since the July roof collapse, but SouthPark Mall General Manager Randy Thomas says the brand plans to open a new concept store in its place.
By the end of the first quarter of 2013, SouthPark mall will be home to at least one other businesses. The first: Hanna Anderson, a high-end baby and children's clothing store. Hanna Anderson boasts supersoft eco-friendly fabrics and prides themselves on their 'legendary' kids pajamas. The opening of the newest Hanna Anderson store is actually delayed because of the cave-in, but Thomas promises the doors will be open by the end of the first quarter.
Girls clothing store, Justice, will not be returning to the mall, nor will Bakers Shoes or Wolf Camera.
