New Stores Coming to the Empire Mall
The Empire Mall has been undergoing a facelift for the past several months, it’s first major renovation in 37 years. Did you know The Empire Mall is the largest one-story mall in the United States?
The Empire Mall is now owned by Simon Malls. According to their website, some of the renovations include a redevelopment of the center court area, new flooring, new seating areas, modernized restrooms and a completely new Sanford Children’s Play Area. All of the entrances will have automatic doors, too. Plus, you’ll see a fresh new look on the outside with redesigned entrances, lighting, landscaping and signage.
Along with a new look, comes new stores. Teavana will open August 23. It’s a loose-leaf tea boutique that boasts dozens of tea blends, in addition to a wide array of quality tea pots, tea sets, and other accessories. Teavana is located in the JCPenney wing, next to Bare Minerals.
Forget about birthday cake, my favorite treat on my birthday is Great American Cookie Company. The store is re-opening in The Empire Mall this month in a new location. You’ll find it in the Sears wing.
If you’re a Victoria’s Secret shopper, you’ll notice it’s not where it use to be. The store is being completely remodeled and will include a new Pink by Victoria’s Secret. The stores should be open in October.
Another exciting change is the addition of Dick’s Sporting Goods. It will be located in the back of the Mall next to JCPenney. No opening date has been revealed. Here’s a look at progress on Dick’s Sporting Goods according to The Empire Mall’s Facebook page.
