New retailer coming to Sugarloaf Mills

LAWRENCEVILLE — Later this month, shoppers at Sugarloaf Mills will have the chance to buy from a clothing retailer co-founded by rapper Jay-Z.

Rocawear, founded in 1999, is a "fashion-forward apparel" company that sells footwear, accessories and fragrances for men, women and children. Rocawear is considered a "leading urban clothing retailer," according to a news release.

"Our loyal shoppers continue to appreciate our growing mix of fashionable retailers for the entire family," said Karl Woodard, general manager of Sugarloaf Mills. "This new addition will further brand Sugarloaf Mills as the one-stop shopping destination for Atlanta residents and area visitors alike."

Rocawear hits their target market. Not good in attracting a better customer base for that mall.

It's just not a Gwinnett Daily Post article without some veiled racism in the comments.

Please enlighten us all...what RACISM are you referring to? It doesn't appear he specified any race whatsoever. But make certain you play your RACE Card, and play it often...that's pretty much all you've got there Tortilla!

LOL Taco, you should point that finger at yourself. I do believe the GDP has removed several of your comments for violation of the user agreement.

My comments are fine. Rocawear is street / thug wear. Whites, latinos as well as blacks can be thugs. So sorry that my comment hurt your feelings, must have hit close to the hood.

This started out as a suburban mall. Now they are reaching out to the urban market. That does have a tendency to chase the suburban market away.

Nah, they will still go there. BassPro shop is still there and the biggest retailer there.

Bass Pro, AKA Red Neck World, is about the only store that we go into there. Should Bass Pro leave that mall may become a ghost town,
