TUPELO – Reed’s is expanding its store inside The Mall at Barnes Crossing.
Work has started to add about 1,500 square feet to the apparel store near Belk.
Camille Sloan, executive vice president of Reed’s, said the plan is to knock down the wall to the empty neighboring space and incorporate it into Reed’s.
The store will be about 11,000 square feet when the project is done.
“We’re not buying new merchandise for that store,” Sloan said. “We’re just going to expand and spread out a little bit.”
Sloan said the work will be minimal until after the Christmas shopping season. Sloan said she wasn’t sure of the expected completion date.
“We feel the opportunity at the mall is very strong and we can grow it even more,” she said.
Reed’s has had a store inside the mall since it opened 20 years ago. The original store is on Main Street in downtown Tupelo.
