Would you believe this fashionista calls herself "a country bumpkin [originally] from Louisiana." We had quite the opposite reaction when we "glimpsed" Ashley Woolsey celebrating her 21st birthday by taking a quick shopping trip to White Marsh Mall. That, in itself, was quite a treat, because the Rosedale stay-at-home mom finds herself on a rather tight schedule, with a 7-month-old son. "Everything I do, he's the main focus. ... He's my No. 1." Woolsey doesn't believe in following trends.

White Marsh Mall will be getting a Charlotte Russe, Shoe Dept. Encore and Villa Pizza, mall officials said Monday. Villa Pizza will open first, when it joins the Food Court on the upper level later this summer. Charlotte Russe will open a nearly 5,000-square-foot specialty store in September, across from the Food Court. The retailer specializes in trendy but affordable junior apparel, jewelry, shoes and accessories. Shoe Dept. Encore will open in more than 10,000 square feet, also in September, on the lower level near JCPenney, specializing in affordable men's, women's and children's footwear.

At 9:15 a.m., before the stores officially open, White Marsh Mall is quiet and surreal. Little indicates the retailing bedlam that will unfold throughout one of the year's busiest shopping days.Only the mall-walkers are out at this hour. James and Gertrude Armstrong, retirees who live in the White Marsh community, ignore the darkened store windows they pass at breakneck speed in their two-mile trek. But they only walk."We've learned the hard way," Mrs. Armstrong says. "We never come down here to eat or shop during the weekend."

Do they know what they're doing? Construction jobs pretty good money, but then they just end. Retail sales…many low paying, and often dead-end. White Marsh Mall…not exactly packed. It's acres of blacktop with much underused. Look out Chesapeake Bay, more runoff infused. So once in a while we may walk through an aisle of one brick and mortar. But then we look down to check on device how cheap online, and leave for best price.

If having a new Hecht Co. department store at White Marsh Mall means the end of the mall's kiddie train ride, Chris DiGiorgio has a solution."Get rid of Hecht's," offers the father of two.Such is the feeling of many parents visiting White Marsh Mall one day last week. Not one of them had anything good to say about a mutual decision between the mall and the soon-to-open department store to remove the train and restore the original fountain beneath.For more than five years, the tyke-size train has chugged around its little track on the mall's lower level in front of what used to be Hutzler's department store.

Squeezed by competition for middle America's dollars from discounters, May Department Stores Co. said yesterday that it will close 32 unprofitable Lord & Taylor department stores, including one at White Marsh Mall, to focus on locations where it can compete as an upscale retailer. The closing of the Northeastern Baltimore County store marks the second time Lord & Taylor has bailed out of a Baltimore-area mall since it entered the local market in 1998. Its two remaining area stores are in Annapolis and Columbia.

Kim Carey was working behind a cash register at Macy's in White Marsh Mall just after 1 p.m. yesterday when "it just went pitch black," she said. A water main break in the parking lot of the Sears store had knocked out power throughout the mall and in surrounding areas. Traffic signals went dark and roadways were jammed, but some shoppers were unfazed. "Some of them continued to shop, wondering if the lights were going to come back on," Carey said. The lights did not immediately go back on, though, and within 15 minutes, firefighters, police and mall officials were telling people that the mall was being evacuated, said Brian Kolarek, manager of the Ruby Tuesday, "It happened pretty quickly," he said.

Open retail strife has broken out in White Marsh as the owners of the area's mall and other established retail centers foment opposition to a proposed upscale outlet mall along Interstate 95. Paragon Outlet Partners proposed building a 525,000-square-foot center with about 100 outlet stores, including brands such as Calvin Klein, Coach and Kate Spade, that would draw customers from across the region and off I-95. The Baltimore-based firm specializes in such malls, developing centers closer to population centers than outlets historically have located.

Your story regarding a proposed outlet mall in White Marsh quoted Allen Robertson as a representative of a community group in Bowleys Quarters that would be affected by the development ( "Developer eyes outlet mall along I-95 in White Marsh," Jan. 24). Bowleys Quarters is located several miles from the proposed site and is at least a 15-minute drive away. I would urge your reporters and editors to take a look at a map before deciding who you solicit comments from. Had you done so you would have easily determined that Mr. Robertson and his group are no more affected by potential traffic from this project than would be the residents of Towson, Essex, Middle River or other areas within that 15-minute zone.

Hundreds of Baltimore-area shoppers packed into the newly reopened Boscov's on Friday morning, welcoming back the department store as if they were greeting an old friend. "We're so glad you're back," customer after customer told store employees and Boscov family members on hand for the retailer's reopening at White Marsh Mall. The nearly 200,000-square-foot store opened in the same anchor spot the chain vacated four years ago amid the recession. The newly remodeled and restocked Boscov's drew hordes of shoppers Friday, all of whom had bought $5 tickets for the preview day. Proceeds went to local causes.

Boscov's department store returned to its former spot in Baltimore on Friday as an anchor of White Marsh Mall. A newly remodeled store opened at 10 a.m. in the 200,000-square-foot space that Boscov's left nearly four years ago. The regional chain is kicking off its return with a special, ticket-only preview day to benefit local nonprofit groups. The opening also will feature performances by the Academy Award-winning singer and actress Shirley Jones. The family-owned retailer has distributed about 25,000 preview day tickets to local nonprofits, which are selling the $5 stubs and keeping the proceeds, a Boscov's spokeswoman said Thursday.

Managers of White Marsh Mall offered more details today about mall upgrades, a day after announcing that Boscov's department store will return to the shopping center in October. Boscov's had closed its store at the mall nearly four years ago after it filed for bankruptcy, but now is in expansion mode. Besides getting its former anchor back this fall, the mall will get a renovated food court, with construction starting Sunday. New stalls will include  Charley's Grilled Subs and Yolavie Premium Frozen Yogurt, increasing the number of eateries to 13. Some vendors will remodel, including Cajun Café & Grill, G'lato d'Italia and Dairy Queen.

Nearly four years after closing, Boscov's department store will reopen at White Marsh Mall in November, shopping center owner General Growth Properties announced Thursday. Boscov's, a well-known regional retailer, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2008, leading to the closure of stores at Baltimore's three large shopping centers: White Marsh Mall, Owings Mills Mall and Marley Station. The new Boscov's will occupy 197,000 square feet at White Marsh. The department exited bankruptcy protection in late 2009 and is headed by chairman and CEO Albert Boscov, the son of the company's founder.
