polo jerseys H to debut in Grand Traverse Mall
CADILLAC A little flash. A little pizzazz. A little “Did that really just happen?!?!?” And a whole heckuva lot of Buckley fans and players going wild. Midway into the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Class D regional title bout at Cadillac High School, Buckley’s Denver Cade picked the pocket of Mt. Pleasant Sacred Heart’s Brendan Zeien at the Irish’s 3 point line. The senior Bear took two steps, flung the ball 60 feet to Austin Harris, who skied to snag it above the rim with his arms fully outstretched. The ball’s momentum carried a falling Harris backward out of bounds, but somehow he still managed to tip it back to a trailing Joey Weber for the easy layup. Sure it was just two points, but the play was the dagger that pierced the heart of the Irish (18 6) as the Bears (19 5) went on to a 66 44 win and a second consecutive regional championship.
TRAVERSE CITY Shoppers can expect affordable fashion trends from another global brand to debut inside Grand Traverse Mall next year.
International clothing retailer H announced in a press release that its first location in Traverse City is set to open inside the mall at 3200 W. South Airport Road by fall of 2017.
000 square foot store will join 14 other H locations currently operating in Michigan, according to the press release. It will carry clothing collections for men, women and children up to 14 years old. The location will also include separate in store sections carrying its accessory and beauty products.
Officials at Rouse Properties, parent company to Grand Traverse Mall, declined to comment on the new store’s location within the mall or what vendor it would replace. H does plan to hire roughly 20 local employees to staff the location as part of its commitment to support local economies, the global retailer said in its press release.
H also noted its commitment to environmental sustainability in its press release, citing “long term investments in sustainable development.” The company launched an in store clothing recycle program called Garment Collecting in 2013, which has since collected 78.5 million pounds of clothing globally. H representatives were unavailable for comment on whether that or other sustainability practices will be implemented at the new location.
