The Children’s Place is coming to the SkyView Center.

The store will open next month in a 3,799-square-foot space on Level B in the Flushing mall, at 40-24 College Point Blvd., a spokeswoman for the mall said.

North America’s largest children’s specialty apparel retailer will join a growing list of businesses targeting children in the mall, including Chuck E. Cheese’s and Carter’s Babies & Kids.

“The Children’s Place is an ideal addition to our existing group of retailers catering specifically to children,” said Michael Dana, president of Onex Real Estate Partners, the mall’s developers. “We have developed a child-centric level of the center to improve the shopping experience for parents and children, while offering national brand favorites and high quality, affordable retail options.”

I thought they were closing down some stores because they do most of their sales online?
