Hamilton Place’s Banana Republic store recently shuttered operations, opting not to renew its lease.
Girls clothing store Justice is moving into the spot where Banana Republic had been.
The local closure may be part of a bigger trend: CNN reported in September 2017 that 2,000 Gap and Banana Republic stores worldwide would be closing.
As for additions, Hamilton Place officials announced a new barbecue joint that will open soon.
They also announced that a business called Altar’d State will open a 5,210-square-foot store on the upper level near Belk this fall. The Tennessee-based women’s store has grown to more than 80 boutiques since it launched in 2009.
