New PINK store and Victoria’s Secret open today; LongHorn Steakhouse opens Aug. 12

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (July 29, 2013) – The highly anticipated openings of the new PINK and Victoria’s Secret and LongHorn Steakhouse will make it an exciting two weeks at La Palmera.

Opening today is PINK, featuring its signature underwear, lounge and sleepwear, beauty products and accessories popular with the college-age crowd. PINK is adjacent to the new location of Victoria’s Secret, sharing a 12,677 square-foot divided retail area with separate entrances for the two stores, which are located adjacent Benjamin’s near Center Court

In only two weeks, the 6,500-square-foot LongHorn Steakhouse will also open at its new location at the front of La Palmera between Ulta and the food court entrance. This is the first Coastal Bend location for LongHorn, which is still hiring for a number of positions. Known for its fresh and expertly prepared steaks, chicken and seafood, the La Palmera location will feature patio dining. The restaurant is set to open Monday, August 12.

“We have been anxiously awaiting the opening of PINK and the new Victoria’s Secret location,” said La Palmera General Manager Fred Walters. “It has been our goal to create the right balance of shopping and dining at La Palmera and the addition of LongHorn gives Coastal Bend residents and tourists one more reason to visit La Palmera. Bringing in new businesses also helps the local economy with the creation of new jobs.”

Shoppers will find other new retail options now open on the upper level near the children’s play area including Cellairis, offering innovative and designer brand cell phone cases, as well as Paint It, a fully instructional, do-it-yourself ceramic painting workshop. Motherhood Maternity is also relocating to the upper level adjacent to Build-A-Bear and will reopen in its new location August 2.
