SOUTHLAKE - Outdoor equipment and clothing retailer REI has become the first tenant to open in Park Village, a new commercial development at the intersection of Southlake Blvd. and Carroll Ave.
The company has hired between 40 and 50 employees, most of which are part time, to work at the 22,000-sf store.
The Southlake store represents REI’s third location in Dallas-Fort Worth and ninth location in Texas.
The company is also planning to relocate its Dallas store at 4515 I-635 to anchor the shopping center on Northwest Hwy. owned by Half Price Books. That 34,000-sf location is scheduled to open in spring 2015.
