You guys are real serious about your malls down there, to the point where your malls are transforming into something more than just malls.

That's what I use to say untill they opened here... You said nothing about upscale, you said "exclusives" ..and only in Dallas would people consider listing a pop-up shop, a hair salon and stores that aren't even open yet. LOL

The stores listed that Houston offers that Dallas doesn't. Other than Fendi, Zegna and possibly Bally(I wouldnt be surprised to see a Fendi in Dallas, they are expanding their name and opening in Atlanta). Dallas has had those stores and they didnt work out for this market or a location will be opening here. The others aren't a significant loss to the Dallas market and its not like any of those brands aren't available to the public here in the many high end department stores around the area. And possibly these stores can't justify the expense of having more than one location in one state. Which is why I think Dallas has stores that Houston doesn't have as well. It doesn't make one city more cosmopolitan or cooler than the other. Dallas does have a larger variety of upscale shopping its a simple fact that can't be denied.

Frederik Fekkai charges $500 for a haircut at his salon. Dylan's candy bar charges $1000 per Popsicle? lol

Oh how the mighty have fallen,
when Atlanta begins to get stores before Dallas ... Its like red lights flashing. I guess a lot of stores just don't work in Dallas, Bloomingdales, Prada, Armani, Dior, Celine, Porsche Design, and Baccarat are huge and a huge loss for Dallas. Houston has had these shops for years and the only one I can remember closing is Dolce & Gabbana but don't be surprised to see it in Houston again, Bailey Banks vacated a huge location right in the center of the "luxury corridor" in the Galleria.

Wasn't Dolce & Gabbana on the verge of becoming bankrupt? They used to have stores in Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and a lot of other bigger cities.

I believe so, the Atlanta location closed around the same time that the Houston store closed. There's very few Dolce & Gabbana stores in North America now .. there are a couple of D&G though

Miami's Bal hourbour shops has both D&G and Dolce & gabbana in one mall.. Which Houston nor Dallas can compare to Miami. But I would give the nod to Dallas only because there are more upscale destanations Plus they have that Barneys NY.. Its nothing like having more options.. Hey if I cant find my size in one store at least I can have the associate call another store and see if they have my size. verse waiting or having it shipped... and regardless if the stores are open or not they soon will be open. you can count them in because its not like there just proposed openings. I think the proper words should have been. We are currently about to open several stores...
