New shops, new look coming to Short Pump Town Center

Posted: Updated:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Short Pump Town Center is expanding. 15 new stores are headed to the Henrico mall, which is also getting a multi-million dollar face lift.

The mall has been around for 10 years, and owners decided nothing says happy anniversary like a brand-new look.

"The major transformation will be a pedestrian bridge connecting the second level," said General Manager Kem Blue. "We are bringing in an elevator so we're adding some vertical transportation."

All these upgrades are being made with customers in mind. In fact, people who shop here were asked to weigh in on what could make Short Pump Town Center even better.

"We're creating a great new experience for our shoppers, creating a family-friendly destination, so it's going to be adding to our already great line up of stores," said Blue.

Fifteen new stores and restaurants are headed to the mall...stores like Michael Kors, American Eagle Outfitters, Kate Spade and True Religion. The expansion will fill more than 62,000 square feet of new retail space.

"We want to reinvest in the property to keep it fresh new and exciting," said Blue.

Many of those renovations are already taking place, but there is more to come.

"A lot of new stores will be opening over the next six to nine months," said Blue.

Managers just hope people keep shopping during the transformation.

"Nothing is closing down," said Blue. "We are going to be business as usual. You are going to see some construction going on around the clock, but we will be open. Nothing changes, except for the new look at Short Pump."

All of the renovations are expected to be complete just in time for the holiday season.

Here is the list of stores coming to Short Pump:

- American Eagle Outfitters/aerie
