Real estate notes: Another big name for Opry Mills

Also: Sub chain preps opening of Green Hills store

Children’s clothing retailer OshKosh B’gosh will next month return to Opry Mills, which reopened fully in March after being revamped following the May 2010 flood.

OshKosh B’gosh Outlet is setting up shop near the Tennessee Treasures Children’s Play area at the 1.2 million-square-foot mall and will be the only Middle Tennessee location for the Wisconsin-based chain.

“Our incredible list of market exclusive retailers contributes to the continued success of our return to Music City,” said Jad Murphy, general manager of Opry Mills. “By meeting shopper demand for returning popular retailers as well as noteworthy new additions, Opry Mills furthers its appeal as the top destination for outlet shopping in Tennessee.”

Separately, Opry Mills officials said Nail Trix will open this Saturday near their Rainforest Café location.

Sandwich chain Jersey Mike’s Subs will next week open the doors to its ninth Nashville-area store. Franchisee Chris Herndon, who runs four other local Jersey Mike’s locations, is moving into the former Shintomi space on Bandywood Drive in Green Hills.

Herndon has been working with Jersey Mike’s since late 1998, when he purchased an existing location. He opened two other stores in in 1999 and a fourth in 2009.


On the Green Hills theme, boutique lingerie store Beloved Intimates has opened in the Glendale Shopping Center below Elan Salon. The store's designer intimate apparel, sleepwear and bridal lingerie items represent more than 25 brands, most of which are new to the Nashville market and include Made by Niki, zinke, Fortnight, and Huit. The owner is Emily Tulloh.
