Carmel Plaza Shopping Center will play host to men's clothing store Khaki's and Homescapes plans a major expansion, while home furnishings shop Jan de Luz, which is currently in business in Carmel Valley will open a new store on Seventh and Dolores.

"My dream, my passion has been to be on Ocean Avenue," says Khaki's owner Jim Ockert, who will move his retail operations downtown from Carmel's Barnyard Shopping Center.  The store is set to open April 1 and Ockert says it will be fitted out with the latest in energy-saving technologies.

Homescapes owners Thompson and Beau  Lange have left their Seventh and Dolores store, and plan a move to a space nearly three times its size just downstairs from Anthropologie this spring.

With  books and magazines for sale , a reading room, an interior design business, and possibly a flower shop, wine tasting room and cafe, Lange hopes Homescapes will turn into a community gathering spot.  The Lange's Barnyard home and garden store will remain open.
