FLINT TWP.-C.J. Banks, a plus-size sister store to the popular Christopher & Banks women’s apparel shop, has announced it will open in the Genesee Valley shopping center by mid-October. Brad Tetzloff, the retailer’s marketing coordinator, says a typical store size is 3,100 sf to 3,600 sf with eight to 12 employees.

Lili Donaldson, marketing director for the Flint Township mall, declined comment because the company has not officially signed a lease, she says.

C.J. Banks specializes in women’s clothing sizes 14 and up. The company’s apparel is known for comfort, a trait also found at its parent store, C.J. Banks. Both stores offer work and leisure clothing incolor-coordinated separates.

The Minnesota-based company operates 11 C.J. Banks stores in Michigan and plans to have 140 throughout the northern half of the United States by the end of August, Tetzloff says. Founded in 1956, the retail chain became a public company in 1992.
