Simon on Friday announced Texas’ first TOMS outlet is now open at Allen Premium Outlets.
California-based TOMS was started after founder Blake Mycoskie, a native Texan, witnessed children without shoes while traveling in Argentina in 2006. To help, he created TOMS, which matches every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair donated to a child in need. Since its inception, TOMS has added to its product line with eyewear, handbag and backpack collections and coffee all while supporting giving partners through its "One for One" model. Even on sale, with every product purchased, TOMS helps a person in need.Now open between Famous Footwear and Gymboree, TOMS’ 2,096 square-foot store is the company’s first outlet in the state of Texas.
Also announced on Friday, bare + BEAUTY and francesca’swill join the transformative expansion at Allen Premium Outlets. bare + BEAUTY offers the best value on today’s top beauty brands including Bare Minerals, Buxom, Shiseido, NARS, Burberry, Ferragamo and more, all in one convenient location. francesca's carries a hand-picked collection of women’s clothing, jewelry, shoes and handbags, along with home goods and unique gifts that can’t be found anywhere else. Each store has its own charm, so no visit is quite the same.
These stores will enhance what is already one of the most productive properties in the premium outlets portfolio, joining previously-announced new retailers New Balance, Express Factory Store, Volcom and Luggage Factory. At its conclusion, the mall expansion will introduce approximately 30 new specialty retailers. The existing center is also being renovated with new features and amenities including updated seating, a new play area, wifi service, landscaping and architectural adornments to match the new structures. In addition, a 22-acre plot northeast of the current shopping center has been rezoned to allow for the future inclusion of restaurants and hotels. The acreage will also be home to approximately 1,300 parking spaces to accommodate for an anticipated increase in shopper traffic.
