T-Mobile has powered down its store at Stony Point Fashion Park.
The wireless carrier permanently shuttered its store at the Southside mall in late December. A company spokeswoman didn’t specify what motivated the decision.
“We have a number of stores in this area within just a few miles, so as part of our normal course of business we closed this store on Dec. 27, 2020,” the T-Mobile spokeswoman said in an email last week.
The store opened in 2017.
T-Mobile is among the latest brands to exit the ailing mall, which is now under the control of a special servicer after its previous owner, Starwood Retail Partners, fell behind on loan payments last year.
Other recent departures include Sur La Table, a national cookware chain, sandwich-and-soup shop Panera and clothing retailer H&M. However, there has been at least one recent newcomer in Eggspectation, a breakfast restaurant that opened in the mall this summer.
The future of Stony Point and surrounding areas are among the focal points of the Richmond 300 plan that the City Council adopted in December.
