Apparel, linens store to open at new Harundale Plaza


The rebirth of Harundale Mall will take a major step forward tomorrow with the opening of A. J. Wright, a discount apparel and linens store launched last year by a national retail chain.

Harundale, the first enclosed shopping mall on the East Coast, had been in decline for a decade before it was largely demolished earlier this year -- leaving only the Value City discount department store.

The demolition made way for a $20 million project by Manekin Corp., to replace the old mall with a retail strip center, Harundale Plaza. When it is completed, occupants will also include a new Super Fresh supermarket.

Wright -- a creation of the TJX Companies Inc., the retailer that also operates T. J. Maxx and Marshalls stores -- says the 25,000-square-foot store will carry home fashions, such as bed and bath linens, giftware and kitchen accessories, and apparel and footwear.

Another A. J. Wright store also opens tomorrow in Woodlawn.
