From big box stores like Walmart and HomeGoods to luxury and niche retailers by the likes of Michael Kors and Tyler’s, Southlake has seen a great expansion in its retail market in 2012. The addition of new restaurants highlighted with the fourth quarter openings of Patrizio Osteria and The Ginger Man have also added to the vibrant businesses now calling Southlake ‘home’.
“2012 has been a great year for new businesses in Southlake,” said City of Southlake Director of Economic Development Greg Last.
According to Last and the city run website www.SouthlakeBusinesses.com, Southlake has recorded seventy-eight new companies who have opened their doors for business in 2012. As a well-known destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, many of the city’s new businesses are in fact retailers and restaurants targeting the affluent suburban population of Northeast Tarrant County.
However, there is more to the city’s economic base than entertainment and with more than 1,600 businesses in total, Southlake also has a vibrant group of non-retail operations. Throughout 2012 Southlake has added many in the financial services, consulting and medical fields to name just a few.
