Nadeau, whose tag line is “Furniture with a Soul,” is moving into the old Wolf camera store site at Cameron Village in Raleigh. This will be the 21st store for the Santa Monica, Calif.-based company and their second in North Carolina. The other is in Charlotte.
This is the second home furnishings retailer to announce a move to Cameron Village in recent months. Bassett Custom Shop is planning a late May opening at the Raleigh shopping center. Bassett offers made-to-order custom upholstery pieces (made in North Carolina, that is) in less than 30 days. Nadeau’s handcrafted furniture can be loaded up and taken home the day of purchase.
The two stores will be opening as construction on Crescent Cameron Village, which will have 282 apartment homes, continues. The leasing office for the apartments at Clark Avenue and Oberlin Road will open in June and the first residents are expected in July.
Also opening in mid-June at Cameron Village is the European Wax Center. The family business – Ron Whidby and his daughter Michelle are behind the endeavor, while wife and mom Rachel handles the bookkeeping and payroll – offers nothing but waxes. The signature wax is called the Comfort Wax and is a strip-less wax that promises less irritation. New customers will get a complimentary wax on their first visit.
P.S. from Aéropostale has entered the Triangle market with a store at Triangle Town Center in Raleigh. It’s on the upper level near Barnes & Noble. While Aéropostale sells casual clothing for ages 14 to 17, its P.S. store will target those ages 4 to 14. The retailer currently has 103 P.S. from Aéropostale stores in 22 states.
The P.S. stores host craft events for kids one Saturday a month, and its associates interact with customers using hula hoops, Nerf Frisbees and bubble-makers.
