Retailer set to open late summer 2021; La Palmera welcomes other new businesses

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (July 12, 2021) – Coastal Bend shoppers will soon have another option for women’s intimate and lifestyle apparel as La Palmera today announced the addition of Aerie to the mall’s retail lineup.

Owned by American Eagle, this will be the first Corpus Christi location for the popular Aerie brand known for its line of women’s bras and underwear, swimwear, lifestyle apparel and more. The 4,000-square-foot store will be located on Center Court between Hollister and Oakley. Construction is set to begin immediately with opening slated for early September of this year.

Meanwhile, shoppers are already seeing other new retailers and services on the mall’s upper level, including women’s boutique Rosetta K Fashion, and orthodontic specialists, Smile-Chic. New looks are also in the works for existing tenants including Urban Aesthetix, formerly TDK, providing trendy men’s haircuts and apparel, as well as a soon-to-be expanded MTV Nails.

Construction also continues on Razzoo’s Cajun Kitchen, known for its festive casual atmosphere and made-from-scratch Cajun food, including gumbo and gator tail. Located near the corner of South Padre Island Drive and South Staples St., the new restaurant is scheduled to open fall 2021.
