PBteen Pop-Up, which offers room décor, furniture and gifts for tweens and teens, will open Saturday at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham. The store, along with Pottery Barn, is part of Williams-Sonoma’s portfolio of brands.
Taqueria del Sol will open Nov. 12 in the Cary Crossroads shopping center at 204 Crossroads Blvd. The restaurant is one of the first franchises for Taqueria del Sol, which operates a number of company-owned stores in Georgia. The Cary franchise owner, CCG Restaurants, plans to develop 10 Taqueria del Sols in North Carolina over the next several years. The brand describes its menu as “the boldness of southwestern (cuisine) and the comfort of southern cuisines.”
Bolt Bistro & Bar is now open in the downtown Raleigh space on Fayetteville Street that was formerly occupied by the white tablecloth restaurant The Mint. The restaurant’s owners are David Sadeghi, who opened three Ruth’s Chris Steak Houses in the Triangle while working for Big Steaks Management, and Adalius Thomas, a retired linebacker who played for the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. The group has brought in celebrity chef Penny Davidi to help develop Bolt’s concept and the menu.
GLITTER opened at Northgate Mall in Durham. The national franchise sells women’s fashion accessories, including belts, scarves, handbags and sunglasses along with jewelry. It has five locations in Canada and 85 across the U.S. Local franchisee Monika Farghaly said GLITTER has been in the Triangle for three years, at Triangle Town Center and Cary Towne Center. The new location at Northgate is in space 118 next to Rainbow and across from Foot Action.
Also open at Northgate is EcoATM, an automated self-serve kiosk that evaluates and buys back old mobile phones from consumers for immediate cash. EcoATM is near Northgate’s food gallery across from Lynn’s Hallmark.
