The jewelry and accessory shop Fornash is now set to re-open in the Ballston Quarter development, after the mall’s redevelopment forced the store to move elsewhere years ago.
Signs posted at a Ballston Quarter storefront indicate that the shop is set to open sometime in spring 2019.
County permit records show that Fornash applied for building permits last spring. It will be located behind the CVS and Punch Bowl Social, in the outdoor section of the mall’s first level.
The store, founded by Stephanie Fornash Kennedy, got its start in Georgetown back in 2002. But Kennedy moved the shop to the old Ballston Common mall in 2012.
Fornash was forced to move out, however, in 2016 as developer Forest City began its extensive rehab work on the mall.
The store joins other businesses like Chick-fil-A, Curious Kids Toys and Refresh Therapeutic Massage in returning to Ballston Quarter now that shops are beginning to open in the development once more.
Fornash offers everything from bracelets, necklaces and earrings to gloves and handbags.
