SouthPark Mall, 4400 Sharon Road
Over in South Park, INDOCHINO is a made-to-measure spot to score men's clothing. The franchise has showrooms from Toronto and Vancouver to New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Beverly Hills and Boston.
Need specific help? This location offers appointments for garment adjustments and both suit and wedding consultations.
With a five-star rating out of two reviews on Yelp, INDOCHINO has been getting positive attention.
Yelper Sang-Keun K. wrote, "Got measured for and ordered two suits from the friendly folks here. Took one round of tailoring, but what struck me the most was how willing the staff were to take the suits a second time if there was anything I was concerned with."
Phillip H. noted, "Great place to start if you're looking for a custom suit for a fraction of the price of other retailers. From walking in the store to receiving your final hand-picked product at home, each step is handled with the absolute care. The associates there are very knowledgeable and easy to work with."
INDOCHINO is open from 10 a.m.–9 p.m. from Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
4400 Sharon Road, Suite G06
Also in South Park is Sugarfina, a gourmet candy store franchise with boutiques from coast to coast. It specializes in "candy for adults," with tongue-in-cheek choices like Champagne Bears, Single Malt Scotch Cordials and Rosé All Day Bears.
Check out hundreds of candies displayed in modern Lucite cubes, and international influences from Japan's Kyoto Blossoms to Greece's interlocking chocolate wedding rings.
Sugarfina currently has four stars from one reviewer, Yelper Rebekah M.
She wrote, "I've tried the Champagne bubbles, the sour gummies and some wonderful hard rose candies. They were absolutely delightful! Everything I tasted was good and sweet (but not too sugary). These items seem very well-suited to party favors for both kids and grown-ups, bachelorette parties, bridal and baby showers, etc. It offers a classy twist on classic sweets!"
Sugarfina is open from 10 a.m.–9 p.m. from Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
