Candle lovers rejoice. White Barn Candle Co. has returned to Briarwood Mall along with Bath & Body Works in a shared location. Bath & Body Works has been operating out of a temporary location inside the mall while the renovations were taking place. White Barn Candle Co. once called Briarwood Mall home, but closed its doors in the early 2000s. Both retailers are owned by Limited Brands, Inc. and will offer shoppers fragrance-enhanced personal care products including lotions, perfumes and soaps. “We are excited to welcome back White Barn Candle Co. to our growing list of quality retail- ers,” said Denise Murray, the mall’s director of marketing and business development in a statement. “The stores were renovated and built in order to improve the shopper experience and to bring the latest in design and products to the Ann Arbor market.”

Art is in season all year in the locally-owned Art Is In Market in Briarwood Mall. The market now occupies the 10,000 square foot space where Forever21 used to reside and features art from more than 60 Michigan artists. Items featured include paintings, pottery, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, furniture, photography, and Detroit sports memorabilia. After realizing the strong demand for work from local artists, the former holiday pop-up shop became a year-round retailer with permanent locations throughout Detroit and, now, its fourth location in Ann Arbor. “We’re thrilled that Art Is In Market has chosen Briarwood Mall to expand into Ann Arbor,” said Briarwood Marketing Director Denise Murray. “We know this community is proud to support locally-owned retailers, and Art Is In Market is filled with beautiful, one of a kind works of art.”
