Lots of changes coming to Cameron Village

January 24, 2013 

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.

Opulence of Southern Pines, which sells fine bed and bath linens, opens April 6 in the space now occupied by Wardrobe.

Bassett Custom Shop opens this spring in the space that’s now home to Thompson-Lynch Co. Thompson-Lynch is moving to Whitaker Mill at Atlantic Avenue. The Bassett Custom Shop is a prototype for the Virginia-based furniture maker. The store offers custom upholstery and a design shop. It’s the outgrowth of the company’s partnership with HGTV.

Cameron Spa & Nail Salon has doubled its space by moving into a new location near Baskin Robbins. It opens in its new location in February. It’s former space near Maupin Travel will be taken by European Wax Center last this spring.

Work is also under way to lease some retail in the Gallery, the 300-unit apartment complex opening this spring. One of the first retailers signed is Brixx Pizza.

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. In addition to brewing its own beans, the café will offer goods from other local roasters and food artisans. The café is slated to open this summer.

Majestic Marble and Glass Co., with headquarters in Youngsville, is opening a showroom at Plantation Point Shopping Center in North Raleigh. The grand opening is scheduled for April 1.

Bia, the latest restaurant from the Hibernian Company, opened in December on the first floor of Solas.

It’s hosting its grand opening on Feb. 8 as a charity dinner to benefit the Wake County Chapter of the Firefighters’ Burned Children Fund. Ten percent of the night’s proceeds will go to the fund. The restaurant plans to host a charity dinner every month.

And finally, a closing. After 15 1/2 years in business, Fuquay Sports Shop is closing on Broad Street in Fuquay-Varina. Its owners are retiring to Asheville.
