Welcome back, Charlotte

A familiar name in women’s fashion is soon returning to Millcreek Mall in Erie, Pennsylvania.  Charlotte Russe will open by late March, in a 7,050 square foot location in the JCPenney Concourse.  Charlotte Russe is a destination for the latest clothing, footwear and accessory trends, with unbeatable pricing every woman can afford.

Named after a delicious French dessert, Charlotte Russe began its sweet journey in 1975 with the first store opening in Carlsbad, California. Putting a spotlight on women in their teens and early twenties, the store offered access to major fashion trends at value-oriented prices.  In 2019, Charlotte Russe took a brief hiatus but is now reopening under new ownership, YM Inc. of Toronto, Ontario.  Details of a Grand Opening Celebration will soon be announced.

The Millcreek Mall Complex is located on upper Peach Street and Interstate 79 in Millcreek Township, near Erie, Pennsylvania.  It has been serving the community since 1975 and has been expanded and renovated numerous times, keeping it up-to-date with current regional mall uses, trends and occupancies. The complex currently comprises more than 2 million square feet of shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment.  For more information, visit  Millcreek Mall Complex is owned and managed in association with Cafaro Company affiliated entities, based in Niles, Ohio.  To learn more about the Cafaro family of companies, go to
