Westfield Galleria at Roseville officials announced 13 new and more than 30 returning stores plan to open in the rebuilt section of the mall this fall. Most stores will open on Oct. 6, as the Galleria marks the grand re-opening of the closed portion of the shopping center, officials announced in a press release Tuesday. The remaining retailers will join later in the fall. Once finished, the rebuilt section, which spans about 120,000 square feet in the northeast corner of the mall, will boast more than 50 stores and restaurants with an updated look and feel, mall officials said. Mall officials expect construction to be completed well in advance of the upcoming holiday season, in plenty of time for Black Friday shoppers. Alexander Piggee, 24, of Sacramento, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Aug. 2 for setting the blaze that caused more than $55 million in damages. According to court records, Piggee entered the Game Stop in the Galleria Mall on the morning of Oct. 21, 2010. After ordering a store employee to leave, he started a fire in a storeroom in the back of the store, which then spread through the ceiling and duct work and ultimately destroyed a large portion of the mall. ~ Toby Lewis ---------- Stores returning to the Westfield Galleria at Roseville: American Eagle Outfitters, Beauty by Threa, Beb, Brookstone, The Body Shop, DeVon, Disney Store, DownEast Basics, EB Games, Fab Bravo, Finish Line, Galleria Nails, GNC Live Well, GODIVA Chocolatier, ICING, Journeys, LensCrafters, Macy’s (Seasonal), Melt Gelato, Mrs. Field’s Cookies, Naartjie Kids, New York & Company, No Fear, Pacific Sunwear, Parrot (AT&T), Payless Shoesource, Pretzelmaker, Spencer’s, TCBY, Tilly’s, Windsor Fashions Relocating stores: Gymboree, Helzberg Diamonds, Justice, Things Remembered, Victoria’s Secret, Victoria’s Secret Pink New stores to the Westfield Galleria at Roseville: The Art of Shaving, Bose, Buckhorn Grill, Cathy Jean, Champs Sports, Charley’s Grilled, Sub, Laline, Milo’s Greek Food, Noskinny, Porsche Design, Samuels Jewelers, Sanrio, Temptations
