A teen clothing store at Valley View Mall is closing temporarily for a remodel.
Hot Topic, next to Lady Footlocker on the upper level of the mall, will undergo a remodel this spring. The store will reopen in mid-May, said company spokeswoman Jennifer Vides.
The store will have a new brick storefront, a new cash register counter, new slat walls, new LED lamps and new flooring, Vides said.
A building permit filed in Roanoke city valued the remodel to cost about $60,000.
Publicly-held Hot Topic agreed earlier this month to be bought by a New York-based private-equity firm, Sycamore Partners, for $600 million in cash.
Lisa Harper, CEO and chairman of the board of Hot Topic, said in a statement that the agreement will give Hot Topic the resources to grow.
“We are very excited about the future growth for the company and know that Sycamore Partners will provide great resources and expertise to us as we operate as a private company,” Harper said in the statement.
