And it's a fairly small store, one heavy on stemware but short on sofas and other home furnishings.
The N&O reports that that will change come 2011, when C&B will close its Crabtree Valley Mall haunts and move to a new, 25,000 sq. ft. space under construction next to Urban Outfitters at the Streets of Southpoint Mall.
The new Crate & Barrel Home Store will be one of a series of new, larger stores from the retailer, with more space to emphasize furniture and furnishings lines in addition to glasses, silverware and the like.
(By comparison, the C&B Home Store recently opened in the Natick, MA mall in Boston's suburbs stands at 30,000 sq. ft.)
First quarter 2011 is the target opening, according to N&O retail beat writer Sue Stock.
