Tysons Corner, VA

Canadian clothing brand Roots plans to open in November at Tysons Corner Center.

Back in June, Tysons Report spotted a sign outside the former Aldo space on the second level by the Victoria’s Secret, saying that Roots would arrive in October.

The clothing brand has now announced that the store will open on Thursday, Nov. 7, according to a spokesperson for the company.

Started in Toronto in 1973, Roots sells women’s, men’s and kids’ clothing, with a focus on leisurewear and leather goods branded with the beaver logo.

For shoppers who can’t wait until November, Roots has stores in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City and Georgetown.

Fairfax County may reduce its parking requirements for its largest malls — including Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria.

The proposal would affect four malls in the county — the two in Tysons, Fair Oaks and Springfield Town Center.

A review of the parking rates and demand at large regional malls by consulting firm Nelson/Nygaard found that less than 65% of the available spaces were occupied during peak times, according to county documents.

The proposal would alter the requirement from four to 2.5 or three parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of gross floor area — the recommended change from Nelson/Nygaard.

“This is a more realistic parking requirement and, if implemented, would continue to provide an oversupply of parking at peak demand on weekdays and weekends during all times of the year,” according to county documents.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is set to vote on Tuesday (Oct. 15) on authorizing public hearings — a Planning Commission one on Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. and one before the board on Dec. 3 at 4 p.m.

“Overall, the changes will provide Fairfax County’s largest commercial retail centers additional flexibility to react to a changing retail marketplace,” according to county documents.

Expensive parkas and jackets — many costing upwards of $1,000 — will soon be sold at a new pop-up store from Canada Goose in Tysons Galleria.

The Canadian outerwear store for men and women is “coming soon” to the Tysons mall. A spokesperson said that the store will arrive this fall and declined to say how long the store will be open for.

Canada Goose is known for its parkas and winter wear that often runs in the $800-$1,200 range. The luxury apparel brand announced plans earlier this year to open six stores this fall — two in Europe, one in the U.S. and three in Canada.

The store won’t be the only Canadian outerwear store in the mall — Mackage, a Canadian brand known for its jackets, coats and leather goods, opened a pop-up shop that will be open until April.

Tysons Galleria also recently welcomed international clothing brand Ba&sh on level one by Saks Fifth Avenue.

(Updated at 4:30 p.m.) For this weekend only, fashion lovers can check out a pop-up shoe store outside Tysons Corner Center.

Tamara Mellon will stop by with their traveling shoe store from Thursday (Oct. 3) until Sunday (Oct. 6). The 24-foot vehicle will feature women’s shoes in different styles and sizes, a press release said.

“The concept is inspired by the success of the brand’s first brick-and-mortar location at Palisades Village in Los Angeles, which reimagines the luxury retail experience,” the press release said.

Tamara Mellon founded the shop after also co-founding Jimmy Choo in 1996. She wants to make fashion more accessible for women, according to a press release, adding that this pop-up will allow the brand to get to know its customers “face-to-face.”

Tysons is one of 12 stops the shop will make while traveling around the country.

“The TM Closet will replicate the shop’s concept displaying each shoe style in every size, creating Instagram-worthy shoe walls which customers interact with to try on and shop product at their leisure,” the press release said.

Wayfair opened a new pop-up shop at Tysons Corner Center today (Thursday).

No more than 20 feet long by 15 feet wide, the store is on the second level right by the door to The Plaza and offers a small sample of Wayfair’s extensive home goods online inventory. Each corner of the pop-up displays decor for a different room in the home — bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room.

“We want people to come and get inspired,” Molly Delaney, the marketing director for Wayfair, said. She added that the items are “great for hosting or any type of party.”

On a tour of the space, Delaney pointed out a variety of colorful rugs and copper drink tumblers to Tysons Reporter and emphasized the “vibrancy” of the space. She also noted that Wayfair is excited to have the space open in time for the back-to-school shopping season, and customers can expect merchandise to shift several times based on customer input.

Other items found at the store include candles, decorative pillows, wall art, lamps and colorful baskets.

Delaney said that by 11:30 a.m. on opening day dozens of people had already stopped to check out the space.

All of the items at the pop-up store, except for the chairs, are available for purchase on the spot. “We are excited people can grab and go,” she said.

The Tysons location is one of four other Wayfair pop-ups throughout the country, including Schaumburg, Ill.; Durham, N.C.; and King of Prussia, Pa.

Hours of operation are 10 a.m. until the mall closes at 9:30 p.m. every day. The pop-up space will remain open through Oct. 31.

Warby Parker is eyeing an opening in the Mosaic District next week.

The prescription designer eyeglass retailer plans to open on Saturday, Aug. 10, according to a press release.
