Just in time for the holiday shopping bonanza, the first phase of NorthPark Center’s expansion brings a slew (26, to be exact) of new stores to Dallas. In 1965, the family-owned NorthPark opened with Neiman Marcus, JCPenney, and Titche-Goettinger department stores and forever changed the way Dallas shopped. Forty years later, the venerable center is still doing just that, starting with the 200,000-square-foot flagship Nordstrom, where you can browse exclusive labels such as Blumarine, Tuleh, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, and Missoni; relax and rejuvenate at Spa Nordstrom; and dine at Bistro N. Also new to the NorthPark lineup are Juicy Couture (second location in United States), where you’ll find the popular label’s women’s, men’s, and kid’s collections; Custo Barcelona, which carries graphic tees and innovative designs with a Spanish flair for guys and dolls; Ted Baker London, featuring quirky and quintessentially British pieces for both sexes; and St. Tropez’s Vilebrequin, where you’ll flip for stylish and swanky swimwear. Standbys like Ann Taylor, Boss by Hugo Boss, Charles David, Chico’s, Cole Haan, Steve Madden, and White House/Black Market also join the Dallas landmark. Look for David Yurman, and H Hilfiger at the beginning of next year. Phase two will open in spring 2006.
