New PINK store now under construction; Coastal Compass educational center prepares to open

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (April 2, 2013) – Construction is now underway on new additions to La Palmera.

Construction has started on a PINK store, new to La Palmera, as well as a new Victoria’s Secret. The two stores will be located adjacent to Benjamin’s near Center Court. Plans call for Victoria’s Secret to move from its current location into the space adjacent to PINK, creating a 12,677 square-foot divided retail area with separate entrances for the two stores. Offering underwear, lounge and sleepwear, beauty products and accessories popular with the college-age crowd, PINK, and the new Victoria’s Secret, are scheduled to open in June.

Construction is also underway on LongHorn Steakhouse, located at the front of La Palmera between Ulta and the food court entrance. Announced in November 2012 and scheduled to open this fall, the 6,500-square-foot restaurant is the first Coastal Bend location for LongHorn, the popular steakhouse known for its fresh and expertly prepared steaks, chicken and seafood will feature patio dining.

The Coastal Compass Education and Resource Center, a not-for-profit organization assisting with educational and career related needs, is scheduled to open in April just outside the doors of La Palmera near Ulta. Announced last summer, the center will assist clients with numerous educational and job-related goals, including financial aid to assist in earning two- and for-year degrees, adult literacy, GED, ESL and dual enrolment, as well as job placement, all free of charge. More information on Coastal Compass is available at www.coastalcompass.org.
