MANY NEW RETAILERS have opened across the city in the past year. In South End, Atherton Mill and Design Center are nearly unrecognizable with the additions of Madewell, Society Social, Sephora, and more. SouthPark Mall welcomed Morphe and Captivate, and Sara Campbell and Tiny opened on Selwyn Avenue. Here are five other stores added to the Charlotte landscape this year:

Marine Layer
1930 Camden Rd., Ste. 237
A branch of San Francisco-based Marine Layer opened in South End’s Design Center in November. The store’s hook is its super-soft shirts, and its commitment to sustainability is extra motivation to shop. Donate old tees here for up to $25 off your purchase ($5 per shirt), and Marine Layer will recycle them into new clothing items.

Charlotte Collective
1222 Central Ave.
Only local vendors occupy this Plaza Midwood shopping co-op. Purchase a house plant from The Cactus Club, a sassy tee from Feminist Goods Co., a soy candle from Pretty Honest Candles, or something from the other 11-plus sellers.

Quad Espresso Jewelry
1026 Jay St.
The name of this locally owned jewelry boutique fits its surroundings inside Not Just Coffee’s Wesley Heights location. Jennifer Falcon’s earrings, necklaces, and more are simple enough to fit any look.

Nic+Zoe
6815-C Phillips Place Ct.
The national women’s clothing retailer opened in SouthPark in June. Expect high-quality material and outfits you can wear to work or for an evening out.

Tabor
421 Providence Rd.
While not a new boutique, Tabor recently launched its first tailored clothing collection this season. All items are made in the United States and can be purchased off the rack from three different silhouettes ($740+) or made to order.
