Updates on South Shore Plaza

The South Shore Plaza will debut a pet store and several renovated storefronts this month. Pet Express will open on the second floor in the Sears wing. The 18-year-old company has locations in Lynn, Saugus, and Danvers, and this will be the first in the South Shore. “This adds another family-friendly shopping experience for our customers,” said Vicki Bartkiewicz, the mall’s director of marketing. In addition, storefronts have been renovated at The Children’s Place, Victoria’s Secret, Victoria’s Secret’s PINK Collection, The Body Shop, and Aerie by American Eagle. “Many stores renovate storefronts and make improvements after several years to keep their stores fresh and updated,” Bartkiewicz said. “Some have had the same look for 10 years, so it was time to be updated.”
