“Our powerful retail line-up continues to expand,” said Lindsay Hermance, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Del Amo Fashion Center, “and there will be more exciting announcements to come as we build towards October.”

Foodies won’t be disappointed either as previously-announced restaurants Great Maple, FRIDA, and a relocated Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que will all appear at Del Amo Fashion Center.
