Vans & PlayLive Nation to Open at Briarwood Mall

Any Vans fans? They are opening a new store in Briarwood Mall. Also coming to Briarwood Mall is PlayLive Nation. From their website, all locations offer XBOX One gaming and some locations offers board/card games as well. I’m hoping the Ann Arbor location also offers board/card game.

New store and restaurant openings offer unique options to Briarwood shoppers.

ANN ARBOR, MI March 2, 2017 —Lifestyle brand and action sports footwear company Vans is set to open a store at Briarwood Mall this spring. A fashion and shoe staple amongst all ages, this new 3,000 square-foot storefront marks a 10-year deal between Vans and Briarwood Mall.

“We are eager to kick start this 10-year partnership with Vans,” said Denise Murray, director of marketing and business development at Briarwood Mall. “Vans is a fashion and shoe staple for so many people and we are thrilled to be housing such an iconic brand in Briarwood Mall.” 

A state-of-the-art gaming experience is also set to join Briarwood Mall. PlayLive Nation is a social gaming lounge perfect for competitive gamers and novices alike. Located in the Sears wing of the mall next to Sephora, PlayLive Nation will open in May.

Vans and PlayLive Nation are not the only new offering in Briarwood Mall. Sozo Japanese Grill opened earlier this year next to Tricho Hair Salon. A restaurant specializing in progressive dishes with high quality ingredients, Sozo Japanese Grill has been wildly received by the Ann Arbor community.
