What’s going on at the mall

Wilton Mall : Home 

Wilton Mall is a busy place these days. Stores are moving, the theater is going up and the lunch crowd is now significant, thanks to Healthy Living Market and Café.

Dick’s Sporting Goods is undergoing renovations, according to Leah Palmer, area senior marketing manager for the Wilton Mall. Lily David Fine Jewelry is moving to a larger space within the mall and doing refurbishment. Super Bounce, run by owner Roger Allan, has moved from the former New York & Company to the former H&M space. Allan promises an added attraction and vending machines, and notes that restrooms are nearby.

“We’re constantly looking for new tenants and figuring out how to best utilize our space,” Palmer said.

Regal Cinemas closed in February, and one day later, Bow Tie Cinemas announced plans to build a new eight-screen theater in Wilton Mall. The mall’s theater is more than two decades old, and Bow Tie is tearing it down completely to build a state-of-the-art facility featuring one large-format screen, Bow Tie Cinemas Chief Operating Officer Joe Masher has said. Work began in March, and the company expects to open the new theater in the fall.

“So many positive things are coming up,” Palmer said. “We’re super-excited.”

People working out at Planet Fitness and shopping at Healthy Living often spend lunchtime in the mall, and this crowd may spend money more freely.

“These businesses are drawing a more diverse, higher-powered clientele. It’s phenomenal,” she said.

On the other client hand, kids are always welcome in the mall, especially during the Kids’ Club monthly meetings. Activities, crafts and games are arranged around a theme such as Insects, and are planned to be both educational and fun. The next club meeting is on Big Cats, July 20 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the food court. See http://www.mallkidsclub.com/wiltonmall/bigcats2013.
