LA's shopping centers are having a real makeover movement these days. Down in the South Bay (which will soon have another retail therapy option), Del Amo Fashion Center is also enjoying its own directory upgrade that promises a slew of new shops this fall.
In addition to nabbing South Bay Galleria's Nordstrom and consolidating its three Macy's shops into two locations, the open-air Torrance mall has scored a two-story, 25,000-square-foot Zara and a massive Victoria's Secret flagship that'll clock in at 15,000 square feet, about three times the size of the lingerie stalwart's other stores. Other upgrades include a renovated H&M (it'll be the same size as Zara), a 2,000-space parking garage, and more beauty and fashion retailers, like skincare brand Kiehl's, Steve Madden, Express, Cotton On, and American Eagle, among others. (Phew!)
The additions are expected to debut as part of the mall's second phase of renovations this October; take a peek at the construction progress here.
