Sorry. Then it probably has most. Who shops at Gucci, Channel, Armani, etc. anyway? My wife and I make over $300k per year, and yet we shop at Belk, TJ Maxx, and Target.

Apparently there will be several changes to the Macy's wing of the mall at SouthPark. I believe H&M will be putting a store there, and Sur la Table is moving to that section also. And now the proposed Bloomingdale's.

H&M is taking the space from Macy's/Bloomingdale's to the food court (on the left). American Girl is taking the spaces from Macy's to The Limited, and The Limited is moving to the location where Body Central is now. Sur la Table is moving to the Dillard's wing, probably in the former Ann Taylor space. I've heard that a full-line Microsoft store is opening too, but I don't know if it is true or where it would go. I know that Lush and Armani will probably be opening sometime this spring, and Gucci and Louis Vuitton (expansion) will probably open by the end of the year.

I had no idea Gucci and Armani were coming.

St John is splitting their space. Gucci is taking part of it and St John will remain in the other. Armani Collezioni is opening in a portion of the former Ralph Lauren space. Louis Vuitton is taking the Lacoste space. Kate Spade is moving next to David Yurman and Lacoste will go in the Kate Spade space. Also, Juicy Couture is closing all of their stores. With Sur La Table moving, that leaves anywhere from 2-5 spaces that luxury retailers could potentially lease. Stores like BOSS, Anne Fontaine, Jimmy Choo, OMEGA, and Salvatore Ferragamo are all feasible for Charlotte. Hermès seems to be more discriminating about where they locate compared to these brands.

Doesn't Hermès already have a SouthPark store?

Yes, and that was my point. Since Hermès already has a SouthPark store and they typically are more discriminatory on where they locate than the others, it seems more likely the others could come. Of course, a lot of these are online orders that determine where they open. Hermes had more Charlotte orders than most other cities, even larger cities.

Ralph Lauren closed last May. I don't believe they were carrying enough Black and Purple Label items in the store. They had too many Polo line items, which were carried at all of the department stores at SouthPark. Since then, Neiman Marcus stopped selling Polo Ralph Lauren for men and now has a vendor space for Women's RL Black Label.

At this point in time I don't know of any plans for an A|X store in Charlotte. Collezioni is their highest end line other than Giorgio and is more traditional.

Also, doing a Google search I found a few items of interest. The first one is years old, but it includes Bloomingdale's as a future store at SouthPark, and other downtown locations were planned before.

Charlotte Electrical Contractor and Engineers | WB Moore Company

Another is after a few pages job listings will come up and will say things such as "View the job posting for Macy%27S Southpark, Charlotte, Nc: Macy%27S Cosmetics Referral at Bloomingdales in Charlotte" from a job listing website, and when you click on any one of these it goes away and it is impossible to find. It seems funny. This with all of the rumors is really to much to make me think it won't happen.
