New stores at Northlake, SouthPark and Carolina Place malls

Local malls have been announcing a bevy of new stores, with nine new retailers open now or set to open at SouthPark, Northlake Mall and Carolina Place over the coming months.

At SouthPark mall, the new stores announced Monday tend towards the high end. Hanna Anderson is opening in spring 2013. The store will offer "uniquely styled, Swedish-inspired soft, quality clothing for children and babies," SouthPark says. The 1,625 square foot store will have pure organic cotton and environmentally-friendly clothes.

Porsche Design is opening a 1,250 square foot store later this year."Founded in 1972, Porsche Design offers functional and timeless designs for discerning customers," SouthPark said. It will sell, "women’s & men’s fashion, sportswear, luggage, eyewear, watches and jewelry, writing instruments, cutting-edge electronics such as the Porsche Design Smartphone P’9981 from BlackBerry® and much more."

Tara Grinna Swimwear recently opened a boutique in The Village at SouthPark. The 2,620 square foot store sells designer swimwear, as well as custom-made swimsuits.

And Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa will open in November, in a 2,941 square foot store next to Cowfish, the sushi-burger joint. The spa will offer waxing, facials, and a variety of massages, including Swedish and pre-natal.

At Northlake, Forever 21 is moving to a larger space. The 21,000 square foot, fast-fashion store will open in November, in the mall's Dillard's wing.

White House Black Market is going to open next February. The Northlake boutique store will, of course, carry black and white clothes, along with a "seasonal pop of color."

And Chico's, a women's fashion and accessory store, is also opening in February. The store promises fresh designs every week and knowledgeable style experts in the store.

“We’re excited to add these new and expanded brands to our retail lineup,” says Northlake spokeswoman Nan Gray. “In the past few months we’ve also welcomed Apple, The Limited, Pandora and Teavana, so it’s a great time to come see what’s new at Northlake.”

And at Carolina Place, Deb has opened. The national retailer sells junior- and plus size women's clothing, footwear and accessories. Teavana, Francesca’s Collections, Kids Foot Locker and Nestle Toll House CafĂ© have also opened at Carolina Place this year, and a TCBY is set to open soon.

When emailing them with a direct question, H&M denies that they have current plans to open any stores in the Charlotte area. Guess it was just a happy rumor...
