Highland Park Village – one of Dallas’s most iconic and historic shopping and dining destinations – reflects on the changing landscape of the region’s evolving retail market and what it means to cultivate community.
How does your company help other businesses become more effective?
Highland Park Village has helped catapult and further establish the luxury shopping industry in Dallas-Fort Worth, welcoming some of the world’s most prestigious brands while also supporting locally founded restaurants and boutiques. Dallas has evolved into an international destination with a thriving shopping, dining, and arts scene that continues to expand.
What differentiates Highland Park Village from others in your industry?
Not only does Highland Park Village have the honor of being registered as a National Historic Landmark, we continue to be a family owned and operated property for more than 85 years. As an iconic shopping and dining destination for local and international visitors alike, we have elevated the luxury shopping experience by creating an environment that reflects a more defined sense of lifestyle, beyond a shopping mall, while reflecting our rich history.
What do you enjoy most about doing business in the Dallas Region?
Dallas stands out as one of the most diverse cities, both culturally and economically, in the southwestern United States. We are proud to be surrounded by a growing community that is attracting businesses from around the world, and also places importance on cultivating community – whether through the arts, charitable initiatives, professional sports, shopping, or the other areas that make Dallas one of a kind.
Why did you decide to become a DRC member?
The Dallas Regional Chamber offers the unique opportunity to foster economic growth, support development initiatives, and connect with other like-minded businesses. Membership allows for ways to encourage business growth and prosperity, which supports the DRC’s overall mission to create the best quality of life for the Dallas Region.
How has Highland Park Village changed in the past five years?
We continue to see an influx of visitors from around the world. In the ever-changing time of technology, immersive experiences and activities are becoming more and more important for brick and mortar establishments that are competing with online shopping. Highland Park Village focuses largely on the customer experience by ensuring convenient complimentary services – including valet, personal shopping, courtesy-car service to and from properties, and a tax-free refund shopping center for international visitors – are readily accessible.
