The Mall of Louisiana is adding two new tenants by mid-March, while another longtime store will undergo an extensive remodeling.
Francesca’s, a women’s clothing boutique, is set to open a location on the first floor of the mall, next to Talbots Petites. This will be the second Francesca’s in Baton Rouge; the Houston-based chain has a location in Perkins Rowe. The store has set a Feb. 7 grand opening, according to its website.
A Vera Bradley store will open in mid-March, mall officials said. The store specializes in handbags, luggage, jewelry and accessories for women. This will be the second Vera Bradley store in the state; there’s currently a location at Lakeside Shopping Center in Metairie. The Vera Bradley store will be located on the first floor of the Mall of Louisiana, next to Michael Kors.
Justice, which carries clothing, shoes and accessories for girls, will undergo an overhaul to fit in with the chain’s new store designs. A temporary location will open near Dillard’s until the work is completed later this spring.
