Charlotte Russe coming to Algonquin Commons

ALGONQUIN – Charlotte Russe, a low-cost clothing and accessory retailer for women in their teens and early 20s, plans to open a store this spring in Algonquin Commons.

Charlotte Russe will take over the space formerly occupied by Williams Sonoma. It is scheduled to open in early April, shopping center officials said.

San Francisco-based Charlotte Russe, named after the French dessert, sells “fab, fashion-forward merchandise,” including proprietary Charlotte Russe and Refuge brands, at what it calls “value-oriented prices,” according to its website.

The mall-based chain has more than 500 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, including Illinois locations in West Dundee, Vernon Hills and Schaumburg, among others.
