Fashion retailer J.Crew Group announced plans to open their long awaited 158th store in The Northlake Mall in Charlotte. Located in the center's premier position -- this 5,500 square foot store will open on September 15th, 2005 coinciding with the grand opening of the mall.
"J.Crew loves North Carolina - Between the culture and the natural beauty of the community, The Northlake Mall has enabled J.Crew to become a part of one of North Carolina's most sophisticated and dynamic destinations," states Jeff Pfeifle, President of J.Crew.
This new location will offer strong presentations of both men's and women's full collections, including J.Crew classics, sportswear and accessories. The men's and women's product assortment will include a considerably expanded color palette and beautiful fabrics from the finest mills in Italy.
While all of J.Crew's stores have a flagship feel, the new Northlake location called for a richer store environment, to create a symbiotic relationship and connection to the community. The second floor location enables the brand to embrace the active lifestyle of our J.Crew customer.
The store concept, furniture, and fixturings designed by and manufactured exclusively for J.Crew, utilize sustainable American natural materials such as cherry and walnut woods, as well as beige limestone flooring. While recognizably J.Crew, the new classic design represents a subtle shift towards the more traditional shopping atmosphere.
Nation's recognized fashion retailer J.Crew Group offers men's and women's apparel, shoes and accessories. It operates 158 retail stores and 43 factory outlet stores. J.Crew started in 1983, with plans to open 2 more by the end of 2005.
