The furniture store By Design is closing its doors in South End and Pineville.

The company is selling off its inventory before it closes its stores, an employee said. Currently everything in the stores is 15 percent off.

Exact closing dates weren’t immediately known. The lease at 2130 South Blvd. runs out at the end of July, and the Pineville store at 11501 Carolina Pl. Pkwy. is expected to close late July or early August.

It’s unclear what will replace By Design in the two Charlotte-area locations.

Edens, which manages the South End property, said it will have some new tenant names to announce “in coming months.”

By Design sells indoor and outdoor furniture, lighting, rugs, artwork and other accessories.
