Lufkin Mall retailers kick off major expansions, construction underway

Construction throughout Lufkin Mall and the equivalent of store musical chairs is underway as two leading retailers begin work on significant store expansions and other stores move to new locations.

Bath & Body Works is expanding its store to 3,381 square-feet from 2,500 square-feet of space in a new location in center court. The store will move July 24 to a temporary space next to GNC.

Victoria’s Secret is doubling its footprint to take 7,566 square-feet of space, by adding space on one side of its current location. The popular store has moved to a temporary location next to Justice, across the main mall corridor.

Another store moving to a new location is Glitter, which has relocated next to Sears.

“We’re excited that two long time tenants are expanding and remodeling their stores to provide consumers with an enhanced shopping experience,” said Sean Griffin, Lufkin Mall general manger. “The retailers’ investment in Lufkin Mall reinforces the mall’s strong retail position.”

“Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret at Lufkin Mall are destination stores for East Texas consumers, which helps drive the success of these merchants and Lufkin Mall,” he added.

Ramping up their space allows each store to expand their merchandise categories. At Bath & Body Works, shoppers will find an extensive White Barn Candle Company boutique, featuring signature scented candles and upscale home fragrance items. The expanded Victoria’s Secret will include a PINK boutique, its signature sister brand, which offers brightly colored lounge wear, intimates, swim wear and more.

Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret are expected to be in their expanded spaces in time for the holiday season.
