Instyle is opening a new tile and countertop showroom in South End at the intersection of Tryon and Summit, in the space formerly occupied by The Boulevard at South End, which closed Dec. 30.

The retailer is targeting an early February opening, a store representative said. The South End location at 1440 S. Tryon, suite 100, will be Instyle’s third showroom; the others are in southwest Charlotte and Mooresville.

Instyle was founded locally in 1994 and offers tile, architectural details, fireplaces, countertops, sinks, faucets and permanent roofing, according to its website.

Management of The Boulevard at South End had said the decision to close the South Tryon store came as development unfolds nearby and threatens to change the feel of the neighborhood.

Dimensional Fund Advisors recently said it will build a 250,000-square-foot office at Camden Road and Tryon Street, displacing the Common Market and other shops.
