Southlake’s acclaimed lifestyle destination continues to draw up-and-coming brands, offering an unprecedented mix of retail offerings to shoppers in the square.
More up-and-coming brands are headed to Southlake Town Square, opening new front doors in the premier lifestyle destination, bringing what is already popular online directly into the hands of shoppers.
“We continue to partner with emerging brands that have a proven track record of online sales that don’t have a physical presence in the surrounding market,” said Jason Kasal, vice president and senior leasing director of Kite Realty Group (NYSE: KRG).
“We strive to offer unique access to a collection of brands that are still new to the shopper. We have a merchandising mix that is unique in the Metroplex. The most successful up-and-coming brands are thoughtfully selecting Southlake Town Square for their newest stores,” Kasal said.
