From purses to technology-- two new retailers at West Town Mall are promising both.

Simon Property announced Monday that Vera Bradley will move into a space later this year across from Abercrombie & Fitch formerly occupied by Helzberg Diamonds.

The popular franchise specializes in colorful, quilted luggage, handbags and accessories, and began 30 years ago.

A new Microsoft kiosk will open May 15th in front of Yankee Candle. They will offer an array of Microsoft products, including Windows mobile phones, Surface tablets, and Xbox game consoles.

"We're excited to announce the arrival of Microsoft and the iconic brand Vera Bradley to our shopping center," said Abbey Harris, director of marketing and business development at West Town Mall. "Our mall is continuing to grow and offer shoppers more variety and options."
