According to this story by Sue Schultz in the Baltimore Business Journal, The Mall in Columbia has recently signed leases for seven new stores.
Four of the new businesses are food court tenant’s including Chipotle which is premiering the first food court unit for the chain. The other food court tenants are the previously mentioned Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Arby’s, and Ruby Thai.
The other three new stores are Bare Escentuals, Vans and Monica Jewelry.
It is interesting to note that this leasing activity comes in advance of next months annual ICSC spring convention in Las Vegas when the lions share of new retail leasing is conducted.
