At the end of May, I shared news of the pending renovation of Justice at Briarwood Mall. My daughter had told me that they were adding Brothers to the store as well. When I was at the mall on Monday, I saw that the storefront was blocked off and renovations were progressing and that the barriers were labelled Justice and Brothers. The press release below, confirms the introduction of Brothers to Justice. Bath & Body Works is also adding a White Barn Candle and California Pizza Kitchen is also undergoing a renovation.

ANN ARBOR, June 25, 2014 — Briarwood Mall is excited to announce two retailers are renovating and adding additional concepts to offer more choices for shoppers.
Bath & Body Works is undergoing a redesign of their store that will offer both Bath & Body Works and White Barn Candle Company. This store will continue in its current location next to Von Maur and is expected to re-open in September.
Bath & Body works is a popular brand of luxurious perfumes, lotions, soaps, and other personal care products. Signature scents include Japanese Cherry Blossom, Twilight Woods, and Warm Vanilla Sugar. Bath & Body Works also offers a line of aromatherapy, home spa, and men’s body care specialty products.
White Barn Candle Co. offers home fragrances, including candles, wall plug ins, and room sprays, in a wide range of designs and scents to create a warm, inviting atmosphere in any home. Fragrances from floral and fruity to relaxing and earthy are available, as well as seasonal and holiday-inspired scents.
Justice is expanding and adding Brothers to its current location. The store is expected to reopen early August.
Justice caters to fashion forward tween girls (age 7-14) with trendy clothing, accessories, room décor, beauty supplies, and more. Brothers carries clothing, swimwear, and accessories for tween boys.
In addition to these changes, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is revamping its Briarwood location. CPK is expected to complete renovations by October, but will continue to offer its gourmet pizza and other specialty menu items through both dine-in and Curbside To Go while work is underway.
“The fact that these quality tenants are continuing to invest in Ann Arbor and in the mall speaks volumes,” said Denise Murray, director of marketing and business development. “The renovations they are undergoing will provide our shoppers with an even better experience.”
