Rock Hill Galleria, Rock Hill, S. C.
Rock Hill Galleria has unveiled plans for a number of large-scale developments slated for the 470,000-sq.-ft. regional mall.
Entertainment destination Revolutions will open a 66,640-sq.-ft. location at Rock Hill Galleria, featuring 30 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, a lazer maze and arena, bumper cars, arcade, restaurant and bar, sports theatre, plus live music and dancing. Opening is anticipated for winter 2012.
As well, Belk is investing $6 million on a total remodeling and 20,000-sq.-ft. expansion of its fashion department store. Construction will begin early next year with a grand re-opening slated for fall 2013. The project will allow the store to expand merchandise assortments and offer new brands and styles of fashion apparel, shoes, accessories and home merchandise. The store will remain open throughout the expansion and renovation.
“We’re completely updating our store to give it an exciting modern look and feel that will enhance our customers’ shopping experience,” said Bill Roberts, chair of the Belk Northern Division based in Raleigh, N.C.
J.C. Penney, which has expanded its Rock Hill Galleria store size from 51,600 sq. ft. to more than 83,000 sq. ft., celebrated the grand opening of its Sephora store-within-a-store, added as part of the retailer’s latest prototypical update. Penney is scheduled to host a grand reopening celebration later in the year.
“The addition of Revolutions, along with the expansions of the Belk and J.C. Penney department stores, are positive steps in re-energizing the retail and entertainment offerings at the tri-county’s only enclosed shopping center,” said Chris Maguire, CEO of Cypress Equities, the Galleria’s developer and managing agent.
