We’ve written over and over again about how the area around Park Road Shopping Center — Montford Park, if you will — is growing like crazy these days. But when you get an Amelie’s in your neighborhood, you know you’ve really made it.

The Charlotte French bakery signed a lease for a new location at Park Road Shopping Center, the Observer’s Ely Portillo reported yesterday.

“It’s a great demographic for us,” Willette told the Observer. “I think it’s some of the premier retail space in the Southeast.”

Details about the space.

– 5,400 square feet.

– Outdoor patio.

– Beer and wine.

– In the shopping center’s back lot, near Rocksalt and the planned Midwood Smokehouse.

– The company plans to start construction in August or September.

– Planned opening this winter, possibly January or February.

Amelie’s continues to spread.

This newest location is Amelie’s sixth. There’s the original NoDa location, Carmel Commons and uptown in Charlotte, plus stores in Rock Hill and Atlanta.

“Every Amelie’s is a little different,” Willette told the Observer. “We think it’s a great fit.”
