UNIVERSITY PARK -- What would a Florida mall be without a swimsuit store?
Orlando-based Everything But Water will be coming to the new Mall at University Town Center, after it applied for building permits Friday, further continuing a list of upscale retailers committing to the mall.
The chain carries designer swimsuits by Michael Kors, Trina Turk and L*Space and has nearly 100 stores in 26 states including International Plaza in Tampa, a Taubman Centers property. The University Park store would be Everything But Water's 10th Florida location.
The two-level, 880,000-square-foot Mall at UTC is expected to open Oct. 16 with more than 100 stores and restaurants, including Apple, Macy's, Dillard's and Saks Fifth Avenue. Everything But Water will also join other upscale retailers like Omega, Lululemon, Pottery Barn and Sephora in the mall.
