Michael Kors and Tilly’s to Open Stores at La Palmera

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (September 9, 2015) – Michael Kors and Tilly’s are opening new stores at La Palmera, the first for each in the Coastal Bend, adding to an impressive line-up of retail options in the La Palmera Shopping District.

Famous for its signature clothing and accessories, Michael Kors will be located on Center Court. Construction is now underway on the 3,500-square-foot store, which will feature signature accessories, footwear, watches, jewelry, men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, eyewear and a full line of fragrance products. Michael Kors is scheduled to open by year’s end.

Construction has also started on the 6,500-square-foot Tilly’s, a leading specialty retailer in the action sports industry selling clothing, shoes, and accessories. Tilly’s offers one of the largest assortments of brands and merchandise from the top players in the surf, skate, motocross and lifestyle apparel industries at its 211 stores in 33 states. Located adjacent to Soma Intimates, Tilly’s will also open later this year.

Meanwhile, other La Palmera tenants continue to update their stores, including Foot Locker. Located near JCPenney, Foot Locker is currently closed while it undergoes a complete renovation of its 5,077-square-foot space. The store is scheduled to reopen in time for the holidays.

“The La Palmera Shopping District continues to be an economic engine for Corpus Christi,” said Fred Walters, general manager of La Palmera and The Shops at La Palmera. “The Coastal Bend is a very desirable location for many national retailers and we are pleased to provide them with the best location available. We anticipate additional tenant announcements very soon.”
