S.Y.L.K. and Charlie’s Philly Steaks Join Galleria’s Roster


(Glendale, CA) -As Glendale Galleria is preparing for its exciting renovation (Look forward to a new Glendale Galleria: Watch the renovation take place here.) and addition of Bloomingdale’s, the shopping center noted for its consistently new and cutting-edge retail concepts brings on two new retailers: Charlie’s Philly Steaks and S.Y.L.K.


“While Glendale Galleria is going through a fantastic transformation we are thrilled to open new stores and eateries for our shoppers,” says Shoshana Puccia, senior marketing manager, Glendale Galleria.  “Charlie’s Philly Steaks brings a fun sophistication to the classic sandwich that we believe customers will really enjoy and S.Y.L.K.’s opening is great timing as women are thinking about updating their wardrobes for Back-To-School and Fall.”


Charlie’s Philly Steaks (854 sq. ft.) is projected to open in late fall, 2012 in the Glendale Galleria food court.  For upscale fast casual dining, Charley’s Philly Steaks pride themselves on a very classic Philly cheesesteak menu and their eco-friendly green dining-in (ceramic dishes and real silverware) and recycled material for dining out, as well.  The eatery will feature signature cheesesteaks and signature lemonades, along with some new twists.  The rice-based Philly Bowls gives diners the superb taste and quality minus the bread.  Lemonades are made with fresh fruit, and choice of flavors includes strawberry, blueberry and peach.  Rounding out the menu are the Ultimate Fries with cheddar cheese, bacon and ranch or the Philly Funnel Fries with cream cheese icing and powdered sugar.


S.Y.L.K. (2,621 sq. ft ) opened on July 31st and is located on the lower level, across from Banana Republic.  The philosophy behind this women’s contemporary boutique is “S.Y.L.K. is relevant for every woman.”  The one stop shop offers a tremendous range of looks and styles from Concert Edgy to Casual Bohemian to Professional Chic.  Established in 2010, S.Y.L.K. has apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry and accessories.


Glendale Galleria is owned and managed by General Growth Properties, Inc. a fully integrated, self-managed and self-administered real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on owning, managing, leasing and redeveloping regional malls throughout the United States and Brazil.  The Company currently owns, or has an interest in, 150 regional shopping malls comprising approximately 141.7 million square feet of gross leasable area.  The Company is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and publicly traded on the NYSE under the symbol GGP.  For further information please visit
