A dog friendly hotel, a bigger store for Trash Pandas merchandise, and a trendy local fashion and jewelry boutique are the latest additions to Bridge Street Town Centre.
The Kendry Collection women’s boutique has opened its first brick and mortar store next to Lucky Brand Jeans, said Haley Buie, Bridge Street’s marketing manager. The store got its start as an online handcrafted jewelry store. At the Bridge Street store, customers will find everything from flirty dresses to eye-catching jumpsuits, as well as handmade jewelry.
“Kendry Collection Boutique has just the piece you’re looking for,” Buie said. It features unique outfits for a night out on the town or fun, one-of-a-kind trendy jewelry pieces.
If sports and the new Rocket City Trash Pandas minor league baseball craze is more your style, then head over to the team’s new official store, the Trash Pandas Emporium.
The Trash Pandas is the Double-A minor league baseball affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. The team’s opening day will be April 15, 2020 at a new stadium located at Town Madison off I-565. The team’s merchandise has reportedly been wildly popular since the mascot name was announced in September 2018.
In July, the store moved from a small location next to the Apple store that netted more than $1.25 million in sales between its opening in November 2018 and its move to the larger location in July, according to Trash Pandas CEO Ralph Nelson in a news release.
Nelson said the new Trash Panda’s Emporium site doubled the store’s size in square footage and is closer to the outdoor mall’s bridge, located next to Sephora. He said a constant comment was that the store was small and always crowded. The new store should alleviate the problem allowing more space and merchandise for shoppers as the holiday season approaches.
Another new addition for Bridge Street is the construction of a new four-story hotel, the Hyatt Place Huntsville/Research Park. It will be located across from Belk at 6860 Governors West NW.
The hotel is now accepting reservations for stays from Dec. 15 and beyond for its 131 rooms, including nine suites. In addition, the Hyatt Place Huntsville/Research Park will feature 1,981 square feet of meeting and ballroom space.
According to its website, the hotel will welcome guests traveling with dogs – one dog up to 50 pounds or two dogs with a total weight of 75 pounds combined. It will also have 24/7 dining, an outdoor swimming pool, along with laundry and business services.
