Spanx will open its first freestanding store at Tysons Corner Center in McLean, Va., today.
The 1,200-square-foot boutique is one of a series of openings in upscale shopping centers scheduled this fall, including King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania in mid-November and Westfield Garden State Plaza in New Jersey. The New Jersey unit is slated to open Nov. 16 but may be delayed because of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
