Four new retailers are coming to Blakeney, the south Charlotte shopping center off Rea Road near Ballantyne.

Springfree Trampoline, nutritional supplement store GNC, Waxhaw Candle Company and high-end bike shop NC Velo are all expected to open mid-to-late summer, according to a statement from Blakeney.

Blakeney is the trampoline store’s first Carolinas location. And it’s the first retail location for the artisan-crafted candle company based in Waxhaw.

“As part of the commitment by Northwood Retail to develop destination lifestyle centers, these new experiential retail offerings and distinctive stores complement Blakeney’s existing anchors, boutiques and dining options,” said Ward Kampf, president of Northwood Retail.

Northwood recently opened a Charlotte office to oversee leasing of Blakeney, Blakeney Crossing and Latta Arcade.
