The renovation will come in early 2017 and provide a “cleaner, more contemporary scheme” that will include new, angular awnings and European stone on the columns for texture, according to the center.

Laurelwood also will add Babcock Gifts and J. McLaughlin to its tenant mix.

Babcock Gifts is a well-known family businesses in Memphis and consistently rated one of the best gift stores in the city. Named as one of USA Today’s 10 Best, Babcock was described as “a Memphis go-to for fine gifts. With fine lines of china, silver and crystal, every bride in town registers here, but the offerings go way beyond bridal.” Babcock offers everything from regional pottery to the finest china and silverware. Babcock will open in Laurelwood Shopping Center in January 2017 at 4538 Poplar Ave., next to Baer’s Den.

J. McLaughlin, the New York-based retailer of women’s and men’s clothing, follows basic concepts for customers: classic clothes with current relevance, sold in a friendly environment that has a neighborhood feel. It will be a new-to-market retailer in Memphis.

J. McLaughlin, which has more than 100 stores in the U.S., plans to be an active member of the community, following its business approach to being a good neighbor. Its addition will add to the impressive list of fashion retailers already operating in Laurelwood. J McLaughlin will open in spring 2017 at 4554 Poplar Ave., next to Dinstuhl’s.

John Reed and Danny Buring with The Shopping Center Group handled the lease negotiations.
