News from The Mall at Barnes Crossing

From the Biz Buzz blog on the Mall news:

• Yes, Ulta is going into the old FYE spot. Interestingly, the beauty retailer is opening its first Mississippi store right here in Tupelo, but I think we’ve mentioned that before in other posts.

• And the replacement for Ruby Tuesday: The Varsity Club and Grill, brought to you by the folks at Old Venice Pizza Co. They’re covered up with the lunch crowd right now, but I’m expecting to get more details on the place. BUT, we are told that it is NOT a sports bar. The lunchtime menu will cater to the lighter side with salads, sandwiches and other lighter fare. But we’ll get more from them later, promise.

• As for the “center court” tenant, Lux will replace Pacific Sun. Don’t know much about them either, but we’re asking.

That’s the update for now … we’ll have more in the Daily Journal tomorrow, of course, and we’ll also post something here.

BTW, for you TGIFriday’s fans, sorry, but the space isn’t big enough for them.
