Bay Street Updates: H&M Men’s Store Opens; Fossil, Aerosoles and Bebe Close; Pandora Jewelry Coming Soon
Some updates to the tenants of the Bay Street Emeryville Shopping Center over the past few months including openings, closings and new stores. The vacant former Pasta Pomodora and Elephant Bar spaces remain up for lease.
H&M Men’s – Expanded
The existing H&M clothing store was, frankly, cramped. Following last year’s closure of Aaron Brothers Art & Framing, H&M expanded their store by separating the men’s and women’s sections into two separate locations. The Men and Women’s locations sandwich the Sephora and It’s Sugar shops.
Aerosoles – Closed
Following its bankruptcy filing last September, Aerosoles closed most of its store locations. The shoe company’s Emeryville location was among the Bay Area closures along with their Santa Rosa and Gilroy stores.
Bebe – Closed
Bebe, a women’s fashion retailer, narrowly avoided bankruptcy amid diminishing sales. Instead, it closed all of its Brick & Mortar stores and became exclusively an online retailer.
Charming Charlie – Closed
After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Charming Charlie closed 100 of it’s 370 locations. The Emeryville location of the women’s jewelry and accessories retailer was one of them. The store in Alameda remains open.
Fossil – Closed / Pandora Jewelry – Opening Soon
Fossil Group announced back in August 2017 that it would be closing 50 stores amid disappointing sales. Among those closures was the Emeryville location. Fossil in Livermore and Vacaville remain open.
Bay Street Mall management has confirmed that the Danish jewelry retailer, Pandora, will be opening a location in the former space sometime this spring.
