The women's accessory boutique hopes to draw new shoppers to the area.
Last week marked the grand opening of Charming Charlie in the Bowie Town Center, the second branch of the women’s accessory boutique to open in Prince George’s County. It’s clear from the moment you enter Charming Charlie that something is visually different about the store, which is filled with handbags, jewelry, scarves and other accessories. “We split things apart into what we call color vignettes,” said Kristin Fitzsimmons, the general store manager for the Bowie location. Many people buy the outfit and then need the matching accessories, said Fitzsimmons.

The store relocated to Gambrills, where it opened on Thursday.
Another storefront in the Bowie Town Center has been left empty with the official relocation of Bed Bath & Beyond to Gambrills. Although the store is still filled with merchandise, make no mistake--Bed Bath & Beyond in Bowie is closed for business. Patch learned last spring that the store was relocating about three miles north with no plans to open another store in Bowie. Workers will be packing up the remaining merchandise over the next several days and sending the goods over to the new store.
