It's official, Teavana and Torrid have been listed on the Miller Hill Mall website as coming soon. The other great thing is that we finally get to know where they will be going... well sort of. Torrid will be moving into the space that currently is occupied by Bristow's (that space is between Hot Topic and Journeys). Whether or not Bristow's will be moving to a new space or not is still up in the air. If you remember their past they have been located in quite a number of spaces in the mall and being that they are a small company with I believe only the Duluth store, it could be likely that their presence at the mall has ended due to the malls increasing rent. However, they very well could move to another space!
There are three possible locations for Teavana. They will be taking space #29 in the mall, which doesn't really isn't much help since they mall rid it's numbering maps from public view a while ago. What we do know is that it easily could take the former space of Trade Secret or that it possibly could go in the former Richard N's space and that the space they will be occupying is 500 square feet. Both are in the center court where it is listed as moving to. The also is another rumor on the front that the Gold Guys may move from their current location to the location where Better Massage (former Knights space) is located and that Teavana would take their space. I myself am not quite sure which space it is, I guess we'll have to wait and see what space gets boxed out first.
Lastly, it appears that the mall has set up the rest of the Great American space a single larger space, probably in hopes of trying to attract a store or restaurant of a little greater size. The space would be perfect for a number of tenants as it is large enough to fit a restaurant almost the size of Applebee's or a store the size of Coldwater Creek. Many retailers and restaurants fall in that larger square footage size. However, the mall could always subdivide it later on.
As far as other vacancies go in the mall. There currently is still the one interior space left in the redevelopment (next to Dress Barn), my hopes still are for a Godiva to locate in there. Yum. There is the space that kind of has held many temp tenants next to Finish Line, a space that really could hold a variety of different stores. Then there is the former North Shore bank space which is so small in size that I could really only see it as a fast food sort of space or another bank, unless the mall takes it over as more offices being their current offices are right next to the space. Obviously there are the two food court spaces (the former Dairy Queen/Orange Julius and the former Chicken Now spaces), both have been boxed out so that gives me hope that something is in the works for both spaces.
And at the moment I do believe those are all the updates I have for the Miller Hill Mall. Let me know if I missed anything.
