Fort Worth TX Grand Opening

We’re thankful that so many of our customers came out to help us open our brand new Fort Worth, Texas and Reston, Virginia stores with a bang! For each Grand Opening, we partnered with a nonprofit organization and donated 10% of our Grand Opening Weekend sales from each new store. We invited our customers to come and shop so that we could write the largest checks possible – and they did!

Our Fort Worth store opened on August 10th with our Grand Opening Weekend sales benefitting local nonprofit Lena Pope Home, which provides prevention, early intervention, counseling and education services to meet the behavioral health needs of children and families. Throughout the weekend we saw thousands of shoppers come out in support of Lena Pope Home, and thanks to them, we were able to donate $19,000!

Similarly, our new Reston store opened on September 21st and thanks to our wonderful customers, we were able to donate $22,000 to Cornerstones – a nonprofit organization that provides support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare and other human services.

Big thanks to the Fort Worth and Reston communities for supporting our Grand Opening festivities! See photos from our Fort Worth Grand Opening weekend and our Reston Grand Opening weekend.
