A third popular national retailer is coming to Trenholm Plaza in Forest Acres.
Bath & Body Works, known for its soaps, lotions, fragrances and candles, will be the third store to go into retail space vacated by Stein Mart in 2020, according to Lynnsey Baker, public information director for the city of Forest Acres.
The two others moving into the space are home furnishings and accessories retailer Home Goods and Sephora, which specializes in beauty products. Construction is underway on those projects.
Baker said construction plans for Bath & Body Works have been filed with the city, but there is currently no specific time table for when construction will begin.
The company has three other locations in the Midlands: Columbia Place Mall on Two Notch Road, Columbiana Centre Mall in Harbison and the Village at Sandhills in Northeast Columbia.
Ohio-based Bath & Body Works was founded in 1990 and has since become a staple at shopping malls, with 1,700 stores in North America and 300 more worldwide.
