The Impeccable Pig is coming to Cameron Village.
The store, which features clothing and accessories for women, comes from the mother-daughter team of Laura Robbins and Jenny Correa of Dallas.
The first store opened in Texas in 2002. After opening six Pigs in the Lone Star state, they decided to expand their range adding a store in Charleston and then last fall in Charlotte.
The Cameron Village store, scheduled to open in early April, will be near Uniquities and Sugarland.
But the Pig is only a small piece of the changes ahead at the Raleigh shopping center.

Café de los Muertos, a coffee roaster that specializes in serving responsibly sourced beans, signed a 6-year lease for space in the Hue apartment building on West Hargett Street in downtown Raleigh.
