COSTA MESA — Carter's will open its first location in the city by the end of this month, a spokeswoman for the children's clothier said.

The 4,100-square-foot retail space will open in the Costa Mesa Courtyards shopping center, across from Triangle Square, with a mix of clothing, sleepwear and accessories suitable for infants and children up to size 6X for girls and 7 for boys.

The clothing is bright, fun, colorful and designed to engage children, said Carter's spokeswoman Miriam Pechar.

"We have a passion for children," Pechar said. "We believe childhood to be a celebration."

Additionally, Carter's has a large selection of infant clothing suitable for premature sizes, she said.

The store is also laid out to make shopping less stressful for busy parents, with sections marked by gender and age group.

"We aim to make it easy from a shopping standpoint," Pechar said.

Most clothing items fall in the $7 to $20 range, she said.


The store will fill about 17 new positions, from entry-level to management, in the coming weeks.
