The Carolina Mall announced the results of its inaugural search for Concord’s Next Great Pop-Up Shop naming two winners — Concord’s Best Dressed Kids and Lovely Lines Boutique — that will each be awarded a six-week pop-up shop in the mall this holiday season.

“We received many great applications from businesses and entrepreneurs here in the Concord area. It was difficult to choose just one winner, so we are thrilled to work with both Concord’s Best Dress Kids and Lovely Lines Boutique. We are inspired by their passion and vision for their business and can’t wait for the community to visit their new shops,” said Coles Doyle, Marketing Director for Hull Property Group. “This has been such a fun project and we hope to continue the pop-up concept throughout the year finding new opportunities to work with local businesses.”

Started by Rob and Lenna Stevenson in 2018, Concord’s Best Dressed Kids is a unique local shopping opportunity for high-end children’s clothing, accessories and gifts featuring sought after brands such as: Burt’s Bees, Rare Editions, Rugged Butts, Mud Pie and more.

“This is an amazing and very unique opportunity! We’re very honored and thankful to have been selected as the winner for The American Dream Project at Carolina Mall. We believe it will be beneficial to all involved; our store, Carolina Mall and holiday shoppers in Cabarrus County,” said Lenna Stevenson, Owner of Concord’s Best Dressed Kids.

Lovely Lines Boutique started by Erica Earnhardt-Wilson and Jessica Eudy in 2017, is a fast-growing women’s boutique focused on clothing for women with curves. In addition to clothing, the store offers accessories, handbags, hand-made jewelry and custom shirts.

“We are so appreciative of this opportunity! God laid this store on our hearts in 2017 and he has continued to bless us on this journey. This is just another example! We look forward to making Carolina Mall our second home throughout the holiday season”, said Jessica and Erica, owners of Lovely Lines Boutique.

The search for Concord’s Next Great Pop-Up is a partnership with the American Dream Project, an initiative that connects entrepreneurs with brick and mortar spaces. Each winner was awarded a space in the Mall and a cash prize to be used for the build-out of their dream space. The shops will open on November 18th and remain open throughout the holiday season.
