Regency's Midtown East Welcomes Four New Star-Studded Merchants

Despite these unprecedented times, four popular, new merchants: Nail Kitchen, The Now, Stretch Lab and Torchy’s Tacos, are calling Regency’s Midtown East ‘home.’ Known for its best-in-class merchandising mix, the bustling Raleigh, NC-based shopping center continues to ‘wow’ its local community with expanding shopping options for every taste, style and budget. 

Read on to learn more about what these retailers bring to Midtown East — from best-in-class fitness and recovery to crowd-favorite food and luxury beauty:

Nail Kitchen | 3,756 SF

This chic, new woman-owned, woman-run nail salon brings luxe style and community to the Raleigh market. Offering waxing and nail enhancement services, Nail Kitchen boasts a skilled staff, environmentally-conscious products and a modern aesthetic. Topped off with an inviting bar where guests can kick back and enjoy champagne during their visit, Nail Kitchen offers a second-to-none pampering experience in a unique atmosphere for all to enjoy.


The Now | 2,708 SF

A trip to The Now is like a step into a relaxing oasis. Founded in Los Angeles, this woman-owned massage therapy boutique has since grown to four brick-and-mortar locations, bringing its first North Carolina-based shop to Midtown East. Offering a range of services from deep tissue massage, herbal heat therapy and scalp renewal to gua sha and prenatal glow, The Now’s space incorporates calming, raw elements and natural materials that create a transformative experience for the mind, body and soul.


Stretchlab | 1,425 SF

A unique wellness concept focused on customized assisted-stretch sessions, Stretchlab believes “no two bodies are the same,” so no two stretches should be the same. Offering one-on-one stretching services to identify individual tightness and imbalance, it creates personalized stretch routines on a client-by-client basis. With core values including freedom, energy, growth, community and caring, Stretchlab brings a unique fitness recovery model to the Raleigh community.


Torchy’s Tacos | 3,803 SF

Torchy’s business mantra begins with three simple words: “damn good tacos''. Boasting more than 75 brick-and-mortar locations (and growing), this tasty taco, queso and margarita mecca is opening its doors to its very first North Carolina location at Midtown East. Offering a delicious menu of high-quality, cooked-to-order ingredients, a full cocktail bar and outdoor patio service, each Torchy’s location boasts a different design and layout, making every location — including Midtown East — one-of-a-kind.

Annie Dlugokecki HeadshotWe are absolutely elated to welcome these four incredible retailers to Midtown East,” said Annie Dlugokecki, Leasing Agent. “Each of these concepts brings heart, soul and second-to-none service and product to the shopping center, and we’ve heard nothing but excitement from our patrons about these additions so far. We look forward to what Nail Kitchen, The Now, Stretchlab and Torchy’s will continue to offer our growing community.
