New Store Opening in South Hills Village

The popular accessory brand will open in the spring.

Vera Bradley is coming to South Hills Village.

The store known for its quilted handbags will open in the spring on the lower level south wing.

The store will also feature luggage, totes, and desk and cell phone accessories.

Also coming to South Hills Village this year, Bonefish Grill opens on Jan. 14 and Target opens on March 10.

“It is so exciting to begin the new year with the opening of these new shopping and dining attractions for the South Hills community,” stated Jennifer Carroll, South Hills Village marketing director. “These new retailers will be key destinations for our customers and are just the first in 2013 to be added to the already-impressive list of shops and eateries at South Hills Village.”

The new establishments opening at South Hills Village shall enable it to continue as one of the premier shopping destinations in the region. I feel privileged to have such a shopping center with so many appealing offerings close to my home.

Aw, I feel bad for Audrey's Attic - they have expanded their store to sell a very large selection of Vera Bradley items - about half of the store is dedicated to it. When they first started selling it, they only had a small selection but it has expanded to what I would imagine is a large portion of their sales.

I'd love Nordstrom, but they would need a stand-alone building.

I love the new openings but what they going to do with parking? The lost spaces when they expanded the food court and now they'll lose even more with Bonefish Grill. And, speaking of parking, please get rid of what I call "the Macys' Maze" across from the T...I get lost every time I go in there!

South Hills Village upgraded while Century III didn't and the results are evident. SHV is booming while Century III is a shell of what it once was.

You're right. There are less parking spaces. This was discussed during the planning process. You can see the reasoning here - http://patch.com/A-hgW9

Thank you, Becky...I hadn't seen that article. We'll see what happens! Mike

mcgpgh, yes we'll see! It's just always going to be hard to get a parking spot by the food court.

I am thrilled about the new stores! I agree the parking is a little tight and outside Macy's downstairs is a maze. As to Century III not expanding from Ed M, that has everything to do with demographic.

Nordstrom would be great for the area, but I would be surprised if the chain opens another store here at this time. The Ross Park Mall store opened just as the economy was collapsing. I suspect the chain would not have gone forward with a Pittsburgh store had it known what was coming, given comments that were made by corporate officials at the time.

Walk it's Good for ya! Besides if you walk enough you will have extra money from not needing your gym membership and you can buy a new Vera Bradley Bag with that extra savings!

Parking trick, park outside sears, you almost always get a great spot.

I cannot argue with the comment of Mr. or Ms "Angry Dove". Yes, walk! We do not do enough of it. Our bodies were not designed for the sedentary lives that many of us lead. Instead of trying to find the closest parking space to the mall door, park farther away. Not only will you get in a minute or two or exercise, you will have less chance of someone striking your car with their vehicle door if you park in an area that is not filled with vehicles!

Amen on that maze at Macy's. It is a "true Maze" and I avoid it at all cost. When in it you wonder if you will ever get out of it. When you do get out you stay out. I don't understand putting Bonefish Grill in that spot.. parking will be horrible.
