UPDATED: First Bloomingdale’s Outlets in Texas to open in Dallas and Grand Prairie
The Grand Prairie store opens August 16.
When two new Bloomingdale's Outlets open in Dallas and Grand Prairie in 2012, the stores will become the first of their kind in Texas. The story was first reported by the Dallas Business Journal.
The Dallas store will open at The Shops at Park Lane in spring 2012, Bloomingdale's announced Wednesday. The Grand Prairie store will be at the Paragon Outlets complex and will open this summer.
Just seven Bloomingdale's Outlets exist so far, and five more are slated to open across the country in 2012, including the two North Texas stores. Popular in New York and California, Bloomingdale's is owned by Macy's. No Bloomingdale's non-outlet stores exist in Texas.
Press contacts wouldn't comment on the coming-soon stores in North Texas, but a press release says they will each be about 25,000 square feet and will sell "a range of apparel and accessories, including women's ready-to-wear, men's, children's, women's shoes, fashion accessories, jewelry, handbags and intimate apparel."
The arrival of Bloomingdale's comes relatively quickly after Swedish retailer H&M made its debut into North Texas, first at NorthPark Center. Outside of fashion, In-N-Out Burger and Trader Joe's are also big-name companies coming to Texas. What other businesses are we missing in North Texas?
UPDATE: Bloomingdale's at The Shops at Park Lane in Dallas is hosting a job fair from 1-8 p.m. on Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24; from 2-8 p.m. on Thursday, March 29; and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday, March 30. Find available jobs here.
UPDATE x2: The Bloomingdale's Outlet in Grand Prairie opens August 16.
