AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) – Two stores in Amarillo are moving and upgrading to provide a luxury shopping experience and more than a grocery store.
The new women’s Dillards in the Westgate mall recently opened its doors
The store has 158,400 square feet of space and over 50 new brands from shoes, to skincare, to luxury clothing.
“You’re gonna see all these new brands you’re gonna see technology that’s super cool in the modern aspect of our new stores,” says Craig Seiter, store manager, Dillard’s Amarillo. “It needed to happen because we need bigger things in Amarillo, we need the big city experience.”
The expansion is noticeable when you walk into the store, but there is also more space behind the scenes, the previous building would hold 39,000 shoes, and the new one holds 80,000 pairs of ladies’ shoes
“It was time for Amarillo to have this wonderful shopping experience,” says Melissa Adair, communications director, Dillard’s. “You don’t feel like you’re in Amarillo you feel like you’re in New York or the Metroplex and we’re just so excited for Dillards to offer that to our customers here in Amarillo.”
The store has an open concept that sets it apart from its previous location. Dillard’s representatives say you can stand at one end of the store and see through the store.
