COURTESY PHOTO Shoppers have a few more excuses for visiting The Gardens Mall, with the opening of five new stores, two restaurants and recent renovations of existing retailers.

“We’re thrilled to see the changes coming to The Gardens Mall,” said Michele Jacobs, corporate director of marketing and operations for The Forbes Company, which owns the mall. “Shoppers now have even more destinations — whether they’re in need of the perfect purse or a beautiful gift to give to a good friend.”

Some of the stores are national chains that deal in fashions and jewelry.

And the Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant has opened a location in the mall, upstairs near Sears.

But look for something local to open downstairs.

Park Avenue BBQ & Grille, Dean Lavallee’s homegrown chain of seven casual restaurants, will expand to include a location at the mall in a space that once was home to Ruby Tuesday and, more recently, The Counter.

Here’s a look at what’s ahead:

Known for its American-made bangles that promote positivity, Alex and Ani will open in September. The 1,000-square-foot shop will be on the mall’s upper level between Marmi Shoes and Tumi.

A 1,062-square-foot Kendra Scott store opens this month, with the designer’s home goods and jewelry.

T-Mobile will open on the upper level of the mall with a 2,373-squarefoot space next to Macy’s.

Kay Jewelers’ 2,017-square-foot store opened this spring on the second floor between GameStop and Lucky Brand Jeans. Fast-Fix Jewelry and Watch Repairs opened a 626-square-foot store in the spring. Located on the first floor next to Zales, it specializes in jewelry and watch repair.

It’s not all new business.

The 2,500-square-foot Coach store reopened in the spring with a new look and a rebranded line of purses, clothes and accessories. It is on the upper level next to David Yurman.

The 718-square-foot Pandora store is being renovated by a Swiss architecture and design company. Work is expected to be completed in early August; a temporary Pandora location has opened on the upper level next to Starbucks.

And about those restaurants:

Park Avenue’s 3,227-square-foot location is set to open later this summer on the lower level of the mall next to Fast- Fix Jewelry and Watch Repairs.

Cooper’s Hawk, which offers seating for wine and dinner and also sells wines by the bottle, opened this spring on the mall’s upper level.

The Gardens Mall is on PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. For more information, call 561-775-7750 or visit www.thegardensmall.com or www.floridaluxuryshopping.com. ¦
