China-based value retailer Miniso is expanding its footprint at 13 malls across the country.

CBL Properties has partnered with Miniso to open stores in 12 new U.S. markets. The first wave of store openings started in November 2023 at Valley View Mall in Roanoke, Va., and Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem, N.C., followed by the January 2024 opening at Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
