Below is a link for a job posting for Soma,an intimate apparel store for women. Soma is a subsidiary of Chicos with 190 store and and is usually found only in top tier malls. The buzz is SOMA has an agreement in place to be in the Augusta Mall. Augusta has attracted many of these top brands to the newer section of the mall like William Sonoma, the Apple Store,and many others. SOMA looks to be opening February 2013. They are looking for a store manager. Atlanta Soma jobs - Store Manager Augusta Mall (opens Feb.2013) Soma Augusta Ga Soma Intimates at Chico's FAS, Inc.

The website say it sells women's accessories and other crap, but I swear it looked like a furniture store when I drove by, but I guess that could've been the merchandise fixtures...

And thanks for the name nort, couldn't remember it for anything.

They seem to be doing some exterior work near the Charming Charlie store.

Don't they put some kind of decorations on that fountain for Christmas? Might be what those barrier things are about.

The Abercrombie and Fitch store in the Augusta Mall is closing for good this weekend.

Mall management tells us the store's last day of business is Saturday,saying it was a corporate decision to close the company's stores in smaller markets.

Abercrombie and Fitch's parent company also owns the Hollister brand...which will remain open.

What test scores?

I wouldn't be surprised if we hear about more store closings in the near future. About 80% of the stores there are in the bottom 10% in the company as far as revenue is concerned. Actually, the following are stores located in the Augusta Mall that are the slowest in the companies chain. Williams Sonoma, Forever 21, Banana Republic, The Limited, Apple, and Coldwater Creek. Rumor has it that H&M, a very popular clothing store in larger cities, is moving into the previous space Abercrombie & Fitch had, this may draw traffic from other areas.

And you know this how?

Anyway, the closing of A&F along with f.y.e. were symbols of the financial struggles of the companies as a whole. A&F closed their Columbia, SC store (at Columbiana Centre) early last year, and closed their Savannah location as well. Seems like they are wanting to only be in large cities and major tourist destinations now (the nearest locations are Atlanta or Myrtle Beach).

Was in the mall today, the Hallmark store is closing the 26th of next month. Don't think this is unique to Augusta though, the Aiken Mall store (one of the only stores that had been there since the mall opened) closed last month, so I'm thinking that Hallmark may be having problems company-wide. There is definitely no lack of shoppers at the mall, so I don't see how you can claim 80% of the stores don't make any money...if they didn't they'd close, and there wouldn't be other stores snapping up spaces as soon as they come open.

I know most stores at the mall are in the bottom 10% or the slowest in the chain but unfortunately I can't explain how I know. I do know that if you simply go in and ask how the business of that particular store is compared to other stores nationally, they will usually tell you. H&M is rumored to be two stories just like the Forever 21 on the opposite side of the mall, from what I've heard Hallmark is closing because of that and FinishLine is possibly moving to a smaller location in the mall. Body Central is relocating to where FYE was and Victoria Secret is expanding and adding there "Pink" clothing store. Even though most stores at the mall are in the bottom 10%, I never said they were underperforming. That being said the stores that are the slowest out of the chain, still make profit. Due to my lack of detail in my first post, stores like Pink & Blue, My Story, Etc wont be in the mall for much longer. The Augusta Mall has come a long way in the last several years.
