Crabtree Valley Mall has found a big-name tenant to fill its vacant Crate & Barrel space.
Designer furniture retailer Arhaus has leased 20,000 square feet, including the entire Crate & Barrel store, the Foot Action space and part of the Deb store. The Deb store is going to be smaller and Foot Action will move near Belk in June.
Crate & Barrel left the mall early this year when it relocated its Triangle store to the Streets at Southpoint in Durham.
It will be the first store in the Carolinas for Arhaus. The company is looking at a January 2012 opening, though it may open before the holiday.
