Four new stores have joined the retail line-up at Westfield UTC, as part of the San Diego mall’s ongoing $180 million renovation.

A May 17 statement from operator Westfield Group said a 2,779-square-foot Ben Bridge/Rolex jewelry and watch store will open this summer, near the mall’s Apple store.

The Art of Shaving, with 706 square feet of upscale grooming products and accessories, is scheduled for a fall opening, between the existing Brighton Collectibles and Chuao Chocolatier.

Those upcoming merchants will join Vans, a 3,139-square-foot store selling action sports footwear and apparel, which recently opened near Macy’s; and Deko Floral, a 150-square-foot store selling high-style floral arrangement and décor items, now open near Starbucks.

Westfield UTC, off La Jolla Village Drive, has announced several new merchants, restaurants and a 14-screen luxury movie theater on the way, as part of a renovation set for completion in 2013.
