New children's store at the mall

— Crazy 8 is coming to Plattsburgh.

The children’s clothing store, which was launched to compete with other successful children’s retail stores, should open in Champlain Centre this spring.

Officials at Champlain Centre, operated by Pyramid Management Group, LLC, said they are excited about the new addition and eager for Crazy 8 to open.

Crazy 8 is part of the Gymboree Corporation family of brands.

The Gymboree Corporation is a San Francisco-based corporation that operates a chain of about 900 specialty retail stores of children’s apparel in the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Canada.

Bain acquired the company in 2010.

Gymboree stores offer coordinating children’s clothing with sizes that range from birth to age 12.

Gymboree has reorganized several times and operates 630 Gymboree Retail stores, 150 Gymboree Outlet stores, 120 Janie and Jack stores and started Crazy 8 in 2007.

Crazy 8 features cheaper clothing and is the corporation’s competitor for The Children’s Place and Old Navy.

There are roughly 300 Crazy 8 stores nationwide that offer fashionable outfits and accessories for boys and girls. They are billed as designed for every minute of a child’s busy schedule, including at and after school, bedtime and on the weekends.

Crazy 8 says its clothing is designed with “colorful, high-quality fabrics and detailed touches throughout.”

The brand carries sizes from newborn to 14.

Construction on the new store is expected to begin this November, with an opening planned for the spring.

Crazy 8 will be located near the food court and next to FYE.
