Ralph Lauren is closing its store in SouthPark mall, according to a letter the company sent to its loyal Charlotte clients this week.
The letter, forwarded to me by an alert reader, says the store's last day open at the mall will be May 17. There apparently aren't any plans to replace the SouthPark location with a local store soon: The letter directs clients to visit the closest Ralph Lauren location in Atlanta or shop online. The company is offering its loyal clients free shipping on online orders for a month.
"Thank you for being part of the world of Ralph Lauren and shopping with us at our Charlotte store. It has been our pleasure to assist you and your family," read the letter. It was signed by Robert Norton, a Ralph Lauren vice president.
No word yet on what will replace the store. Stay tuned, however. And as always, send me any tips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
