St. Peters, MO, 2018-Jan-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — On the heels of the announcement by H&M to open a store at Mid Rivers Mall this fall, the mall is also excited to announce several store relocations to make way for the new store, as well as significant investment and upgrades both inside and outside the property.
Three national retailers have made a commitment to stay at Mid Rivers Mall, despite the need for them to relocate for the new H&M store. Claire’s will move to a new 1,250 square foot space on the lower level in Center Court. Justice will relocate to a new 4,100 square foot space on the lower level near Dillard’s. Lane Bryant will move to a new 5,000 square foot space on the lower level in the Dillard’s wing. All three will open in their new locations by this summer. American Eagle Outfitters is also reinvesting in their store at the mall by completing a remodel of the space in their current location on the lower level in the Dillard’s wing.
Mid Rivers Mall will also be opening a new “Pop-Up Shop” next month, an opportunity for local boutiques to try their business in a mall setting for one week at a time. Additional details are forthcoming in the coming weeks, but small businesses interested in more information about this new leasing opportunity can contact Justine Robinson, Specialty Leasing Manager, at 636.970.2610 ext. 227.
In addition to these retailer moves inside the mall, Mid Rivers Mall is also investing in the interior with several projects. First, the Center Court escalators will be replaced. Second, both elevators will be improved with new finishes and mechanical upgrades. Finally, new digital directories will be installed throughout the mall. All of the interior projects will be complete by this summer.
Finally, several major improvements are being made on the exterior of the mall as well. The parking lot lights will be upgraded to LED, plus 24 more poles will be installed throughout the lot. The majority of the lot will be resurfaced this year, and the remaining portion completed in 2019.
“Between the new H&M, several store relocations and the significant investment both inside and outside the property, a ‘Mid-amorphosis’ at Mid Rivers Mall is taking place,” said the mall’s General Manager, Spencer Dawkins. “These new stores and enhancements prove to our shoppers and the community that Mid Rivers Mall is THE major shopping destination in St. Charles County.”
Mid Rivers Mall completed a full interior renovation program at the end of 2013, which included new flooring, updated interior colors and paint, energy-efficient lighting upgrades, plus new amenities including soft seating areas and holiday décor. In 2016, Mid Rivers Mall made the investment in a brand new HVAC system.
