BUFORD — Mall of Georgia has announced the future opening of two new stores and renovations to one of its existing businesses.

Later this year, Forever 21 Inc. will debut its newly-renovated 18,258-square-foot space in a new location with entrances on both the upper and lower level of the mall near Belk. Forever 21 sells men’s and women’s fashions and accessories at affordable prices.

Tilly’s, which sells an assortment of brands and merchandise from top players in the surf, skate, motocross and lifestyle apparel industry, is set to open in late 2014 and will offer a variety of items for men and women with active lifestyles. The 6,445-square-foot space, which will be located in Forever 21’s previous space adjacent Charlotte Russe on the lower level of the mall, will include clothing, shoes and accessories.

Opening in April, the 1,354-square-foot boutique fab’rik will sell a fashion-forward selection of women’s apparel, shoes and accessories. Every fab’rik employee doubles as a personal stylist, so shoppers can look forward to a customized experience.

“We are thrilled to welcome these leading fashion brands,” said Carol Cox, director of marketing and business development at Mall of Georgia. “The addition of a newly renovated Forever 21, Tilly’s and fab’rik helps Mall of Georgia continue our commitment to better serve the Gwinnett community with an enhanced and ever-growing roster of retailers.”
