The Shops at Kenilworth Announces that Iconic Baltimore Fashion Retailer Ruth Shaw will Join Shopping Center as Part of $20 Million Renovation
(April 11, 2017) — Greenberg Gibbons announced today that Ruth Shaw has signed a lease for 3,100 square feet at The Shops at Kenilworth, the landmark shopping destination in Towson, Md. that is currently undergoing a $20 million renovation.
Ruth Shaw has been a well-noted resource for luxury fashion in the Baltimore area for more than 40 years. The boutique sells women’s apparel from a variety of today’s most sought-after European and American designers, including Alexander Wang, Rag and Bone, The Row, Self Portrait, Max Mara and more. The store is also known for its knowledgeable staff members, who can help style outfits for any occasion.
Ruth Shaw will be moving to The Shops at Kenilworth from its longtime location at the Village of Cross Keys in September. It will join an established mix of fashion and beauty retailers from the Baltimore area, including South Moon Under, Jos. A. Bank and About Faces Day Spa and Salon. Several new stylish stores are also celebrating openings at The Shops at Kenilworth this spring, including Amaryllis, Quiet Storm, Zen Life and Liza Byrd.
“Ruth Shaw’s unique selection of high-end fashion apparel and accessories make it a Baltimore area icon,” said Brian Gibbons, Chairman and CEO of Greenberg Gibbons. “The store will add to the vibrant new energy of this revitalized community gem.”
“The revamped mix of specialty stores, convenient Towson location and longstanding community tradition at The Shops at Kenilworth make it a perfect fit,” said Ray Mitchener, owner of Ruth Shaw. “We’re excited to serve our current and future customers in this dynamic new location over the next 40 years.”
The new store, designed by Baltimore favorite Jay Jenkins of Jenkins Baer Associates, will be located across from the newly opened Trader Joes on the second level of The Shops at Kenilworth. The mall is undergoing a transformation that includes updating the exterior and interior into a more contemporary and welcoming specialty shopping and community gathering place. Retailers remain open during the renovation, which is taking place in phases to minimize disruptions, and is targeted for completion this fall.
Greenberg Gibbons began managing The Shops at Kenilworth in July 2014 and assumed full ownership of the property in April 2015. For more information about the renovation’s progress, see the press releases and news articles below:
