With the holiday shopping season upon us, the Bay Street Shopping Mall is preparing for the inevitable shopping rush with the opening (and subsequent closing) of stores. Opening in the spot of the former Jody Maroni’s Sausage Kingdom is a French beauty purveyor, L’Occitane. Replacing the shuttered G by Guess is the seasonal calendar & game shop Go!.
NOW OPEN: L’Occitane:
French beauty purveyor, L’Occitane, opened a new store on the south end of the mall, next to the Teacake Bake Shop. The store specialized in selling face, body and home products designed in France. And for readers wondering how the company’s name is properly pronounced, it is: “Lox-ee-tahn.”
NOW OPEN: Go! Calendar, Games & Toys:
Go! Calendar, Games & Toys recently opened to serve the fun-seeking shopper. As the name implies, the store sells items such as board games, 2015 calendars, and more. It’s located on the north end of the mall, in the space previously occupied by “G by Guess” A store employee says that the store will be open through the holiday season, but they hope to become a year-round, permanent store. However, it would be dependent on the volume of business they receive through Christmas.
The AT&T store is undergoing a top-to-bottom remodel. The store will have a new layout with dozens of flat-panel televisions. It will remain open for the time being, as work will be done on one-half of the store at a time. Work is scheduled to be completed on or before the beginning of December.
NOW OPEN: The Christmas Store:
As expected, the Spirit Superstore closed after Halloween passed. Replacing it is ‘The Christmas Store’ which swung open its doors for the Holiday shopping season. This store offers gift wrapping for all of your presents. In addition, they also sell ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree with.
