A store that sells clothing made of recycled materials has opened its doors at Tysons Corner Center, kicking off what appears to be a fashion-focused year for the region’s largest mall.
Rothy’s opened a 1,815-square-foot store on the mall’s second level, near Macy’s, last Thursday (Jan. 25), Tysons Corner Center announced Friday (Jan. 26).
Originally launched in 2016, the San Francisco-based brand began as an online-only retailer focused on women’s shoes — specifically ballet flats — manufactured out of single-use plastic bottles. The company has since expanded into other types of shoes for men, women and kids as well as handbags and other accessories.
With the Tysons opening, Rothy’s also assembled 18 brick-and-mortar stores around the U.S., including one in Georgetown.
“We’re delighted to expand the Rothy’s retail portfolio to include Tysons Corner and grow our community in the greater DMV market,” Rothy’s Vice President of Retail Shaheen Mufti said. “Our newest store will serve as a platform to share our brand story and mission, offering comfortable, washable, sustainable footwear alongside thoughtfully designed handbags and accessories.”
In addition to announcing Rothy’s arrival, Tysons Corner Center confirmed two incoming tenants, both of them clothing retailers.
As previously reported, the Pakistani fashion brand Khaadi will open its first U.S. store at the mall this year, occupying 5,491 square feet on the second floor near Barnes & Noble. Mango, a fashion company based in Barcelona, Spain, will open near Macy’s this summer.
Khaadi is on track to open around the third week of February, a company spokesperson told FFXnow.
Other changes at the mall include a new location for Foot Locker, which has combined its existing regular Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker stores into a new “Power Store” on the first floor near Wasabi.
According to Tysons Corner Center’s press release, the shoe company’s Power Stores offer customers “the largest product selection of any of the retail chain’s store concepts,” including “sneaker and apparel trends specific to the community where the stores operate.”
“Following a number of notable openings in 2023, we are thrilled to welcome a large number of new high-performing and well-known brands to our roster of tenants in 2024,” Jesse Benites, director of property management for Tysons Corner Center owner Macerich, said in the release. “As the #1 shopping destination in the region, and one of the nation’s top-performing centers, Tyson Corner Center continues to attract top brands with the high-volume productivity that retailers are seeking.”
A two-story outlet for the fast-fashion company Primark is also still under construction in the former L.L. Bean space near Bloomingdale’s. Macerich announced the deal back in 2021, and Primark said last August that the store — its 22nd in the U.S. — will open in 2024.
