Another new business rumor has been confirmed. This one surrounds the rumor that Carter's is planning a second area store in Spokane Valley Mall.
We've uncovered building plans that show Carter's coming in a unique fashion. The plans actually show a remodel of a space in the mall into a Carter's / Oshkosh B'gosh co-branded store. Both are similar retailers / clothing brands but Carter's already operates one store in Spokane and Oshkosh B'gosh does not. The other Carter's is a decent sized place in the Northtowne Square shopping center in North Spokane.
The store would be a complete remodel of a few spaces on the ground floor of the mall ( suites 1130-1134 ). This in southeast corner of the center court area of mall, nearby JC Penney and lots of other stores. With the merged suites the store will have a little over 5000 square feet with no mention of how much space would be dedicated to each brand.
Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh are both baby, toddler and childrens clothing companies that we're once competitors until Carter's acquired OshKosh in 2005. Today Carter's has over 650 locations and OshKosh has over 300 including product sales through several other channels.
