PLANO, Texas, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At Home®, the home décor superstore, announced the company will expand its reach in the North Texas market with a new store opening in Farmers Branch this May.
The 137,000 square foot store will be 10 miles north of downtown Dallas on Midway Road off I-635. Additionally, the brand's current Plano storefront, located at Spring Creek Parkway and K Avenue, will be moving a new site off of Central Expressway near Parker Road in June.
With the Farmers Branch and Plano relocation opening this year, combined with the Fort Worth store that opened in October 2015, At Home will be investing more than $17 million into the local DFW community.
"Investing in the DFW Metroplex is a top priority for us since we're based here," said Lee Bird, CEO of At Home. "Both the Plano and Farmer's Branch locations offer great visibility off of major thoroughfares and strong co-tenants, which make them the perfect locations to expand our brand."
At Home allows customers to express their personal style by choosing from an expansive selection of more than 50,000 items—including seasonal and holiday décor, patio furniture, home furnishings, wall art and decorative accents, rugs and housewares. Employing an everyday low pricing model, At Home is dedicated to allowing customers to affordably make their house into a home.
"We're thrilled Farmers Branch has been chosen as the location for At Home's new store," said Mayor Bob Phelps. "Our ideal location along 635, which boasts a daily traffic count of some 300,000 vehicles, and the instant bond we had with the At Home team make this a perfect fit. We look forward to welcoming At Home to the Farmers Branch family."
The new Farmers Branch store will be located at 13307 Midway Road off I-635 and the current Plano store at 1717 E. Spring Creek Parkway will relocate to 2704 E. Central Expressway.
At Home will open at least 20 new stores in 2016.
Following each store opening, the Farmers Branch and Plano locations will host grand opening events including ribbon-cuttings and in-store giveaways for customers. The Farmers Branch location will be the eighth At Home location in Dallas-Fort Worth, and both Farmers Branch and Plano stores will employ approximately 40 full- and part-time team members.
At Home currently operates in more than 100 stores across 28 states. Customers can find home décor inspiration via the At Home website or via #AtHomeFinds on social media.
