    The store is expected to be the country’s largest furniture store when it opens in early 2015. Nebraska Furniture Mart will attract between 6 million to 8 million visitors a year and the city’s sales tax revenue is expected to double.

    The store will serve as the anchor tenant and developer of Grandscape, a $1.5 billion project along the Sam Rayburn Tollway between Spring Creek Pkwy. and Plano Pkwy.
  • Top Golf, a 65,000-sf, three-level golf entertainment complex, will open in early November at 3760 Blair Oaks, and Spec’s Wine, Spirits & Finer Foods opened on October 10. Top Golf will bring 450 jobs, of which 100 will be full-time positions.
