NorthPark Center has announced store openings for nine new retailers, including six that are market-exclusive. The leases, which add up to 13,200 square feet, give the upscale shopping center more than 75 shops and restaurants that are exclusive to the North Texas market. Two additional exclusives, Arhaus Furniture and Pirch (formerly Fixtures Living), will open in summer 2014 as previously announced.
One of the new nine new retailers, Splendid, opened for business last month. Here are details on the other eight:
• Rolex, to open this fall, in the former Stuart Weitzman space, will sell new and traditional timepieces. The shop will sport Rolex’s newest interior design, which includes a private viewing area.
• J.Crew Men’s Shop, also opening this fall, is the retailer’s first stand-alone men’s shop in Dallas. The 2,800 square foot location will carry the menswear collection and third-party brands.
• Tourbillon Boutique, to open November 2013, is the Haute Horlogerie distribution network for Swatch Group’s prestige brands.
• Tory Burch, to open in April 2014, is an American lifestyle brand launched about 10 years ago. The collection includes ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, accessories, and, coming soon, fragrance and beauty with Estee Lauder.
