The Galleria Dallas store is also expanding. The new Plano location is a decent size as well as the Fort Worth location. I'd assume DFW has more square feet of LV than the Houston metro.

The white cones are for the valet to block off dedicated parking spots between uses, so general parking doesn't use them. There's decent sidewalks and crossings throughout the development.

Logistics!!!...... Dallas is in the center of the United States...... With the 4th largest Media Market inside of the 4th soon-to-be 3rd largest Metropolitan Area at or close to 8 million people.

Subconsciously "Image First" minded people.....

The kind of people who would spend a little more on an item more often because general presentation would warrant it.......The type of environment and people-mass a brand would want to open a storefront in...... It's the more sought Market in Texas.........Just go look at the lists posted throughout this whole thread.....look how many more storefronts that are exclusive to Dallas. ......Some of those stores that are exclusive to Houston are spill-over TEXAS EXCLUSIVES... that didn't have a big enough footprint in the U.S. or a following in TEXAS to support paying the rent @ HPV OR Northpark Center.......Making it irresponsible to barge its way through the line to get in.....The intelligent thing to do is to open in R.O.D or Houston Galleria quietly......THEN enter the Dallas Market when it strategically makes sense.....or when people in Texas wake up to us.

The last thing a luxury brand wants to do is FAIL ....And have to shut down.....Like Barney's NY did...........Dallas wasn't ready!!!!.......Too many other Traditional Texas stores that were already ingrained in Texans' heads... caused them to NOT bite the "Fancy expensive NY furniture store" bait.........Operation cost in that HUGE space they occupied plus LOW customer Base equals FAILURE.......IN A VICIOUS DALLAS MARKET!!!!

A lot of people also say that Dallas is fake and pretentious. So because multiple people say it, that means it's true? According to your logic, if someone else says it, it's valid...right?

Also, that video says NOTHING about Dallas being this "coveted" first-market area...it only highlights Highland Park Village as being the "first" outdoor mall in America (very cool by the way), along with other great shopping destinations in DFW.

Like we said earlier...all DELUSION.
