Women’s clothing and accessories retailer Charlotte Russe Inc., which is based in San Diego, recently opened a new store at Viejas Outlets in Alpine, its 11th in San Diego County.

The 7,562-square-foot store sells clothes, shoes and accessories for women in their teens and early twenties, according to a statement from shopping center operators. The retail center is located across from Viejas Casino off Interstate 8.

The new Charlotte Russe store is near the center of the outlet mall, overlooking the central park area where community events are held.

Charlotte Russe, named for the French dessert, opened in 1975 with its first store in Carlsbad. The company now operates more than 500 stores in the United States and Puerto Rico.
