Copper Penny to open SouthPark boutique Aug. 1

It looks like the upscale women’s boutique Copper Penny will be opening in Charlotte much sooner than anticipated.

On its Facebook page this week, the Charleston-based store said its new Phillips Place location will be open at 10 a.m. Aug. 1 through its grand opening, which runs from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.

During that time, the shop will be serving champagne and other treats as well as giving away raffle prizes including gift cards to Phillips Place restaurants, accessories from some of the owner’s favorite lines and concert tickets.

The boutique had originally planned for a fall opening.

Copper Penny sells designer clothing, jewelry and footwear. It is located at 6800-C Phillips Place Court, between Paper Source and Orvis.

The new Phillips Place boutique will be open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday.

The company has several locations in the Charleston area, as well as in Columbia, Hilton Head Island and Greenville, S.C., and Savannah, Ga. It’s also opening a shop in Brentwood, Tenn., according to its website.
