New Stores Coming to SouthPark

SouthPark, North Carolina’s premier shopping destination, is pleased to announce the addition of four new stores to its retail roster this season. From clothing and accessories to nutritional supplements, the brands offer a wide variety of products. The new stores include GNC, Pandora, Tory Burch and Vera Bradley.

GNC opened the doors of its SouthPark store in May with special visits from Panthers star DeAngelo Williams and Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin. At more than 2,500 square feet, the new store is the largest GNC store in the Charlotte area. The unique floor layout is divided into four sections that showcase distinct product categories including health and diet, vitamins, as well as fitness and sports nutrition.

Pandora, an international jewelry company based in Denmark, plans to open its 804 square foot retail location between Godiva and Wentworth Gallery in July. Pandora is best known for its popular charm bracelets, customizable from a selection of over 800 handcrafted silver and 14-kt gold charms. The SouthPark location will carry the entire line of Pandora jewelry featuring a range of products from $25 sterling silver charms to 18-kt pave rings, which retail for more than $1,600.

Tory Burch, a women’s wear company best known for its sophisticated American aesthetic at an accessible price point, is scheduled to open its first store in the Carolinas in July. The store will occupy a 2,149 square foot retail space in the Neiman Marcus wing. Tory Burch was launched in February 2004 as a lifestyle concept with multiple product categories, including ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and jewelry. The SouthPark store will carry the full clothing line as well as shoes, handbags and accessories.

Founded in 1982, the Vera Bradley concept and line of products was developed by two friends as they sat in the airport and noticed a distinct lack of feminine luggage. Fast-forward nearly thirty years and the Indiana-based company continues to remain steadfast in its commitment to excellent quality, exclusive designs and dependable customer service. The SouthPark Vera Bradley store will occupy 1,789 square feet of space between Guess and Cache. The store, which will carry the full line of Vera Bradley quilted luggage, handbags and accessories, is expected to open in late July.
