CHARLOTTE, NC (Katherine Peralta/ The Charlotte Observer) A few stores will open soon at SouthPark Mall.
Teen retailer American Eagle, which closed its SouthPark location in January 2015, will open a 5,000 square-foot store near the Macy's wing this spring, according to a statement Friday from SouthPark owner Simon Property Group.
The old American Eagle, near Urban Outfitters, is now a combined Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie Kids store.
Also opening this spring is an athletic footwear and apparel retailer called The Athlete's Foot. The store will be in a 2,929 square-foot space in the Belk wing.
"It's important that we continue to bring in stores that complement the center's ever-growing roster of coveted brands" said Holly Roberson, director of marketing and business development for SouthPark.
