(Updates at the bottom.)
As expected, Williams-Sonoma indeed plans to leave its current location at 281 King Street and search for a new spot on King and a second location in Mount Pleasant, but also moving is high-end fashion shop Biton, who plans to close their 15,000-square-foot location at 275 King.
The Post and Courier has a brief on both announcements (read here, paywall).
Also, for those curious if H&M will set up shop in Charleston — as we wrote before, there is no hard information on those rumors yet, but given past word that the Williams-Sonoma spot was eyed, I can't help but wonder if Biton's departure will line up well, with H&M able to offer separate Men and Women stores.
Update December 26: In an update, The Post and Courier notes that Williams-Sonoma should be in its new downtown home at 359 King Street by March.
The paper also says that the Puma store at 285 King Street is due to close at the end of the year.
