Several newcomers have arrived recently in Tysons Corner Center, while a few spots are now vacant.
Here’s an update on the latest store changes at the mall:
Beeboy, a plush toy company, is now open in the former spot of candy store Sugarfina on the first level by Macy’s.
Colombian Jeans Store has closed on the second level next to Blessed, according to the spokesperson. A new tenant is expected to be expected in a few weeks, the spokesperson said.
Dabke Lebanese Cuisine is no longer on the third level of the mall.
Rent the Runway will have a pop-up show starting on Thursday (Jan. 16) inside of the mall near parking Terrace E.
Permits indicate that Cotton On, an Australian retailer, is coming to the mall. No word yet on the exact location or expected opening date.
A kids’ clothing store in D.C. is expanding to Tysons.
The store first opened in Georgetown in 2014, according to the store’s website. Little Birdies Boutique announced the expansion to Tysons on Instagram last week.
The store “takes a southern approach to childrenswear offering nostalgic traditional clothing mixed in with fun playful styles,” the website says.
Shoppers can expect the new Tysons location to open sometime in March, according to the store’s Instagram.
A store where shoppers can try out the latest tech products is coming to Tysons Corner Center.
Signs indicate that B8TA will open a store at the mall. The retail-as-a-service company has chains that present various consumer electronics and devices.
The store is coming to the first level of the mall near Bloomingdales. The wrap-around at the storefront says that B8TA is hiring.
Shoppers can find a B8TA kiosk with about 30 products on the second level by Bloomingdales.
A new Tysons Corner Center store is selling hand-crafted furniture and accessories for people decorating in a French Regency-style.
Tradition de France opened in November on the first level of the mall by Lord & Taylor and is the second location for the Alexandria-based, family-owned business, an employee told Tysons Reporter.
Raphael Botbol, the store’s manager, told Tysons Reporter that Tysons Corner Center has a broader range of shoppers and more foot traffic than nearby Tysons Galleria.
Botbol said he hopes that shoppers at Tysons Galleria’s high-end stores will come over to Tysons Corner Center to browse their selection of furniture and accessories.
Ultimately, the store hopes to cater to people who are looking for a “taste of luxury” offered at a variety of price points.
Accessories range from $30-$1,000, while the furniture ranges from $500-$8,000, the employee said. The store also sells paintings for $700-$1,000.
Some of the items shoppers can find in the store include a gilded sofa selling for $4,160, a 10-foot-long dining table for $7,590 that seats up to 12 people (chairs are sold separately) and colorful balloon accessories — one of them costs $30. There’s also a globe with an old map for $325.
Most of the furniture comes from Asia and Europe, Botbol said.
While it’s a small store, Botbol said that Tradition de France offers a larger selection of furniture — especially small tables — online. The website is currently getting updated and is expected to be back up in a few weeks, he added.
For shoppers interested in stopping by, the store is open during the mall’s regular business hours.
Black Dog Beer Shop, a craft beer store inspired by the owner’s dog, is gearing up to open next year in Avenir Place.
Owner Tyler Cohen told Tysons Reporter that the shop is planning to open in early February — about a year after Cohen started work on the new store.
“We’re here to support the local scene,” Cohen said.
Cohen, who lives in the Mosaic District, said that he originally picked a location that was closer to his residence, but that his idea didn’t fit the landlord’s vision of a bar or restaurant.
“That fell through, but I’m glad it did,” he said.
Even though the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro station and other Orange Line stations in NoVa are set to close temporarily next summer, Cohen said he still thinks the spot he nabbed at 2672M Avenir Place will add to the restaurants and townhouse already there.
Cohen is also happy about the discounted rent on the spot “because it had a column in it.”
“The goal of Black Dog Beer Shop is to provide a craft beer store with a large variety of local craft beers,” according to the beer shop’s website. People can expect to find local brews, including Port City Brewing, Aslin Beer Co. and Ornery Beer Company, along with taps for growler fill-ups.
The website says that he is opening the store because “I wanted a place to grab a beer with my dog.”
“I think they just, like, go together,” he said. “Dogs and beer is the thing.”
Ash is a fan of beer and will go “snout first into my thing of beer,” Cohen said, adding that his dog’s German ancestry must be influencing the pup’s taste buds.
To gear up for his opening, Cohen has been visiting breweries across Virginia and detailing the tours on the website’s blog. Recently, he’s been to Port City Brewing Company and Settle Down Easy Brewing Co.
“I’ve met so many cool people,” Cohen said.
Cohen has also hired a store manager and assistant store manager, both of whom are “beer sommeliers,” Cohen said.
Ultimately, Cohen said that he hopes to grow the store and expand to North Carolina and Maryland.
But for now, he’s aiming for a “walkable neighborhood beer store” that will attract craft brew lovers and newcomers.
“I see the main customers as two types of people — serious beer lovers who want to try all sorts of different stuff, the “beer explorer” — and the other type we want to capture is those just starting off drinking macro-brews and want to explore micro-breweries but don’t know where to start.”

Known for its clothing and stationery brands, Cotton On has a global presence with thousands of stores.

Longtime Vienna furniture retailer Posh! has reopened in Vienna after closing its Maple Avenue location.
The store moved in September to 200 Dominion Road NE — just a short drive from its previous location (419 E. Maple Avenue). Owner Mary Anne Antonides is also considering expanding to another location in McLean, although she wasn’t sure when that might happen.
The new spot previously was a design studio for Antonides, but was not always open to the public, like it is today.
Posh! has resided in the building for 27 years in one capacity or another, Antonides said, adding that repurposing the location allows them to expand their “entrepreneurial opportunities.”
Currently, the shop is running a pre-Christmas sale that gives customers a 20% discount on Christmas items and custom floral arrangement and 30% off everything else in the store as a “thank you” to customers who followed Posh! to its new location.
The hours of operation are Mondays-Tuesdays from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Thursday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The shop is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Shoppers at The Boro in Tysons can now browse furniture and home goods in the new Ethan Allen store.
An employee said the store opened earlier this week. The store is the latest of several store and restaurant openings at the mixed-use development by the Greensboro Metro station.
The furniture chain relocated from a Route 7 location to a 11,500-square-foot spot at the corner of Boro Place and Westpark Drive. The store is right across the street from the newly opened Whole Foods.
Located at 1622 Boro Place, the store is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-5 p.m. on Sunday — or after 6 p.m. by appointment only.
