Versona opening southwest Charlotte store

Versona, the women's accessory store operated by Cato Inc., is opening a new store in southwest Charlotte at the end of August.

The store is in the Shops at Rivergate South expansion of the Rivergate Shopping Center, next to Pier 1 Imports, off South Tryon Street. This is Versona's second Charlotte location, and employs about 25 people.

Here's how the company describes Versona: "Versona is a women’s specialty retailer of apparel and accessories at exceptional prices every day. Committed to high quality fashions, the store will carry everything needed to complete any outfit including jewelry, handbags, shoes, belts, scarves, hair accessories, sunglasses, gift items and more. Customers will enjoy an upscale shopping environment in an easy-to-shop format with merchandise organized by color and trends."

Cato, which operates women's clothing stores under its own name, has grown the Versona brand rapidly and now has about four dozen stores throughout the Southeast.

The new Charlotte store is set to open August 28.
