The new J.Crew Mercantile store in the Park Road Shopping Center will open Wednesday.
The retailer will host an opening-day event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. featuring treats from Suarez Bakery, which is also in the Park Road Shopping Center. Ten percent of the day’s proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Charlotte.
J.Crew Mercantile is a concept launched in 2015 that offers the same clothing, accessories and shoes as J.Crew Factory stores. This is the first of its kind in Charlotte.
The new store in Park Road Shopping Center will be in the space next to Blackhawk Hardware that was previously occupied by Toys & Co., which closed at that location last February.
Park Road Shopping Center, which is owned by Columbia-based Edens, has been adding more national retailers to its lineup recently. Some include Chopt Creative Salad Co., which opened in the fall, and Burton’s Grill and Urban Cookhouse, which will open this spring in the former Monkey Joe’s spot.
