Over the next few months, Fashion Valley Mall will get even more fashionable as several new stores open inside the shopping center.
According to mall representatives, the new retailers include lululemon athletica, a standalone PINK store by Victoria’s Secret, Free People and AllSaints.
The AllSaints location, a British fashion house that’s a newcomer to San Diego, will be the first to set up shop at the mall. It’s the first-ever standalone AllSaints store to come to San Diego, joining 107 AllSaints stores that already operate across eight different countries.
In Fashion Valley Mall, this store will open Mar. 28 in a 5,200-square-foot space on the mall’s lower level, next to Michael Kors and near Macy’s. Besides carrying its edgy, cool apparel for men and women, this store will also carry some tech and digital products.
Retail Industry Changing and Upgrading
In July, those who love to lounge in comfy loungewear will rejoice when Victoria’s Secret opens the PINK store. This 5,500-square-foot shop will be located near the children’s play area.
Once that opens, the existing Victoria’s Secret store will expand its retail space, providing an even bigger selection of lingerie, undergarments, sleepwear and other products.
Also this summer, lululemon athletica will open a location on the second level of Fashion Valley Mall, between J. Crew and Sur La Table. There, San Diegans can buy yoga and fitness apparel for both men and women. Mall representatives say the retailer also plans to host various healthy community events, including weekly complimentary yoga classes and fitness goal-setting workshops.
Later in 2014, a Free People store will join the shopping lineup at the mall, boasting its trendy, free-spirited designs. This store will be located on the second level near Neiman Marcus and will specialize in printed tees, thermal tops, unique jackets, shoes and more.
Finally, the mall’s existing women’s activewear label, Lorna Jane, will relocate later this year to a permanent spot on level one between Macy’s and Neiman Marcus.
Currently, Fashion Valley Mall -- located at 7007 Friars Rd. -- houses more than 200 stores and restaurants in its outdoor setting.
