Carter’s Inc., a chain that sells children’s clothes and items, plans to open two Louisville stores by year’s end, one at Shelbyville Road Plaza and the other at Springhurst Towne Center.
Business First reported the plans, quoting a release on the company website. Carter’s is the parent company of Osh Kosh B’Gosh and other baby and children’s apparel brands.
The reports said Carter’s expects to open its first Louisville store in July at Shelbyville Road Plaza in St. Matthews. The company has signed a lease for about 5,000 square feet of space formerly occupied by Kiddie Castle Fine Children’s Furniture, which relocated a few months ago to Hurstbourne Parkway.
Carter’s, which currently has a store at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in Simpsonville, plans to open the second local store by October at the Springhurst site at 4141 Town Center Dr. Details have not been disclosed.
Carter’s is based in Atlanta and has more than 600 locations. Its brands include Child of Mine, Just One You and Genuine Kids, in addition to Carter’s and Osh Kosh.
