Sep 30, 2012 (Menafn - The Herald-Sun - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Northgate changes: The Mad Burrito location in Northgate Mall's food court has closed, but a spokeswoman for the mall said it is slated to be replaced by a new eatery in the coming months that will serve Mexican food.
The mall's Dressbarn women's clothing location and its Dressbarn Woman plus-size clothing store have closed temporarily to allow for the stores' consolidation into a single location in the mall in a space that previously housed Talbots.
Allison Savicz, a spokeswoman for Northgate, said in an email that the new combined store is expected to open in the next two weeks with more space and merchandise.
Dressbarn is a brand now owned by the Ascena Retail Group, which acquired the women's clothing line in June with the acquisition of the company Charming Shoppes Inc. and its family of retail brands. The company operates stores under the retail brands Justice, Lane Bryant, Maurices, Dressbarn and Catherines.
The company has about 3,800 stores throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada, with annual revenues of more than 4.5 billion on a pro forma basis for the fiscal year that ended July 28.
Fairview Dining Room interior design changes: The Fairview Dining Room at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club on Duke's campus has some new decor, according to a news release.
The changes include the addition of six curved booth arrangements, as well as cherry-finished chairs and tables and accent pieces, including framed, vintage Wedgwood china pieces from the Duke family collection, the release states.
There are also four new large mirrors, each concealing a flat-screen TV.
