Years ago, Bal Harbour Shops reached a point where demand for space far outreached supply, so the Whitmans began closely examining each tenant and analyzing monthly and rolling 12-month volumes and sales per square foot, comparing how each brand stacked up against trends in their category as a whole. Those performing renewed leases, those underperforming are reviewed to see how to improve results, or they close to make room for a newcomer.
Following are stores that have opened or are opening this year, and those that reopened with new store designs.
