Tiffany and Company Coming To The Woodlands

The Woodlands Tiffany and Company
The world’s most distinctive package is coming to The Woodlands Market Street!

Tiffany & Co., whose jewels have adorned women from film stars to first ladies, has announced it will open in the shopping and entertainment destination in November.

Tiffany & Co’s Market Street store, its second in the Houston area and sixth in Texas, will showcase the prestigious jeweler’s collection of engagement rings, diamonds, watches, men’s items, accessories and gifts, all presented to shoppers in the treasured Tiffany Blue Box®, a retail tradition that dates back to founder Charles Tiffany who mandated the coveted boxes could only be acquired with a Tiffany purchase.

“We’ve studied The Woodlands and Market Street, in particular, for quite some time,” says Kerry Tropeano of Tiffany & Co. “Market Street presents an impressive collection of retailers and restaurants – one we’re proud to be a part of.”

The new Tiffany & Co. store will open in space previously occupied by Z Gallerie. Renovation to the 4,000-square-foot space, which includes the addition of a dramatic new entrance, is expected to be completed by November. Z Gallerie has relocated to a corner space across from Tommy Bahama Café & Emporium.

“We are always looking to create an experience that presents a collection of retailers unlike any other shopping destination in the region,” explains Market Street General Manager Jill Liccioni. “To be successful as a leisure destination, you need a real ‘wow’ factor. Certainly the addition of Tiffany & Co. gives us that.”

Maintaining Market Street’s status as a premier shopping destination means offering stores and boutiques shoppers simply can’t find on every corner, Liccioni adds.

Market Street is home to Texas’ only Tommy Bahama Cafe & Emporium and one of two Norton Ditto stores in Houston among its collection of more than 70 fashion retailers, boutiques and restaurants, several of which are locally owned and operated.

In December, Market Street welcomed the posh, 70-room AVIA boutique hotel. Other recent additions include LMD Boutique, Langford Market, Stadia Sports Grill and Bar, The Madison Boutique, Bobby Chan and Glo Sun Spa.

The Woodlands Market Street Revels in Early Success of AVIA Boutique Hotel

The Woodlands Market Street
What kind of impact can a high-end, boutique hotel have on a lifestyle shopping and entertainment destination? At Market Street-The Woodlands®, the answer is plenty. Less than two weeks after Market Street welcomed its newest anchor tenant, the sophisticated, 70-room AVIA hotel, Market Street’s fashion tenants and restaurants immediately noticed an increase in customer traffic and sales, particularly on weekends.

While guests at the posh hotel vary from couples enjoying weekend getaways to individual U.S. business travelers and families traveling from Mexico, they all have one trait in common – they enjoy shopping!

“We’ve definitely seen an increase in customer traffic, particularly on Saturdays, since the hotel opened,” noted Kristen Dougherty, General Manager of the Baby Gap and Gap Kids in Market Street.

“Our launch at Market Street has been very successful so far,” said Kendra Smith, Manager of Tattu Denim, a purveyor of premium, custom jeans for men and women that opened in Market Street just before the AVIA hotel opened.

“Our sales are up 10-15 percent since AVIA opened,” noted Frank Barnard, President of Flatbread Ventures, LLC, owners of Pizza by Marco. “The hotel certainly has brought an exciting element to the area.”

Each of AVIA’s guestrooms and suites features an elegant, contemporary design with custom lighting, 42-inch flat screen TV, MP3 docking stations, wired/wireless Internet and an in-room laptop safe. The property’s second-floor Terrace is a comfortable outdoor space with an infinity pool, outdoor seating and a fire pit overlooking Market Street.

Besides its immediate impact on Market Street’s existing tenants, the presence of the new, boutique hotel has led to an avalanche of new lease deals at the 500,000-square-foot, open-air shopping and entertainment destination. Market Street is well over 90 percent leased with occupancy levels at their highest point since the award-winning project opened in 2004. Market Street currently houses 90 tenants, including 18 restaurants.

New tenants at Market Street include 1252 Tapas Bar, Stadia Sports Grill & Bar and fashion tenants LMD Boutique and Langford Market. Other newcomers include Charming Charlie, All About Feet, the home furnishings and accessories store Belle Maison, and Red Mango, serving all-natural frozen yogurts.
