The new entrance will help transform the mall “into a more contemporary, welcoming specialty shopping center and community gathering place. The entrance is covered, incorporates domed wood ceilings and canopy lighting, and faces Kenilworth Drive. It sits next to a new Trader Joe’s grocery store under construction, which is opening in early 2017,” the mall said in a statement.


All store at the mall are open during the renovation, which is taking place in phases to minimize disruptions. The center will continue to host community events, including its Holiday Train Garden, which will run from Nov. 19 to Jan. 6 this year.


Construction on the property began last summer. A remodeled Stebbins Anderson store was completed as part of the overall renovation plans last spring.

“I am delighted with the renovations being made at The Shops at Kenilworth, which has been a hometown favorite for shoppers for decades,” Baltimore County Councilman David Marks said in a statement.


Trader Joe’s is set to open at the mall this spring; it is closing its store in downtown Towson.

That mall has long been overdue for a renovation, and I am glad that it seems to be getting a classy one. So much better than allowing the place to rot as a “dead mall.” Also, I’m glad TJ is moving there. Right now, people park in the TJ lot to go to the movies, so it’s impossible to get parking certain times of the day.
