If you like to shop until you drop the mall has new options. See video to the left.
It is not only your plants that will be growing this spring, Colony Square Mall is also welcoming new arrivals.
"We’ve got a busy spring planned. We have 2 new stores opening as well as a current retailer who is remodeling and relocating," said Marketing Director of Colony Square Mall, Kevin Pinson.
Rue 21 chose to remodel. Their new store will be larger and make it easier for shoppers. Also new is The Children’s Place, an affordable store for newborns, toddlers, boys and girls. Pinson looks forward to the new store.
"We see an increase in traffic and in sales. Plus, you know it kind of rekindles the romance with the mall when you get new stores in the mall," he said.
Another store brings a sweet spot to where Mrs. Field’s used to be.
"The cookie store will have everything; if you just want to get your munchies fix while you are here at the mall or if you want the giant cookie for a birthday or other occasion" said Pinson.
72% of the mall is occupied with stores, but with empty spaces there is a chance more stores will be coming in in the future.
"We are always talking to real-tors , but we can’t announce anything until there is a name on that dotted line," said Pinson.
Rue 21 will open at the end of the month, The Children’s Place opens in late April and The Cookie Store will open late spring.
