A reader asked me to check if a Charming Charlie store might fill a spot near T.J.Maxx and Target. I inquired with CC’s corporate headquarters, and no, it’s not on the list of stores planned for 2014. The nearest Charming Charlie stores, which specialize in jewelry and other women’s accessories, are in Vacaville and Roseville.
