Glad management realized they needed to stop letting anyone in and
only allow leases to spaces that benefit the center's legacy and boost
the "exclusives" they boasts.

Burglars drove minivan into Dallas Highland Park Village’s Chanel Monday morning to steal purses

"Chanel sits on the Preston Road entrance to Highland Park Village, next door to the always crowded Starbucks. Despite its proximity to Preston, it is not a drive-thru.

But early Monday morning, six suspects drove a minivan into the Chanel store to snatch hand bags valued around $4,000 to $5,000 … each [mod cut]."

This attitude is why Dallas is considered too snobby. Can anything good come from a mall catering exclusively for the rich 1%ers? Why chase away middle-class shoppers who drove down the freeway from the suburbs to go back to their local mall? Not even the (Houston) Galleria is that exclusive--and that's the gold standard of luxury.

And watch the sales at NorthPark fall because of it...

Everybody in Dallas aren't rich. There needs to be a balance between high-end and low-end stores. If you think NorthPark is packed out because of the high-end stores, then you're highly mistaken.

NorthPark didn't become the go-to mall until the expansion was completed in the mid 2000s. If the exodus of low-end stores continues...I can see it losing its top spot.

I've heard people say that NorthPark is already too expensive and they refuse to shop there....I think the same sentiment will continue as NorthPark adds even more expensive stores.

I completely agree with Jasonsim.

Lower-end stores need to be replaced with higher-end stores.

This is no different than replacing old, low-density apartments with higher-end, high-density apartments.

This is what happens when a city is doing well and I'm disappointed others don't see it.

Is this about getting teens and other 'undesirables' out of NorthPark? Because I don't really see a reason that most of those stores should necessarily exit NorthPark quite honestly, other than the fact they are not high-end.

Would NorthPark necessarily be better off as an exclusively high-end mall? It seems that by the responses here that is highly debatable.
