Opening Soon: The New Dillard’s Store is Going to Be Amazing
Amarillo is getting a new store, the store has been in Amarillo for decades but they have a brand-new remodeled home that will be opening soon.
I had the opportunity to tour the new Dillard's Store and let's just say this building is beautiful.
This used to be the old Sears location at the east end of Westgate Mall. Sears closed down and Dillard's grabbed up the building and started the remodel.
Even outside the building, you will see a uniqueness that sets it apart from the rest of the mall. Dillard's currently occupies two locations in Westgate Mall a two-story store in the middle of the mall on the north and also on the west end of the mall. Their main store sells women's fashions, children's, accessories, fragrances, and beauty. Dillard's on the west end is home to men's and home fashions.
It's like a dream come true. It is happening right in Amarillo of all places. Literally, we are the only store grand opening for this fall. We're the only store in the whole company. Us, for the fall, to have a grand opening. - Craig Seiter
The new location of Dillards will be home to the Women's Dillard's along with the fragrance and makeup and skin care. Dillard's Men and Home Fashion will remain on the mall's west side. The current/old Dillard's will be open for clearance items. The new Dillard's is a huge deal for the Amarillo area.
When is the grand opening?
The Grand Opening will be in two parts. The first chance to see the new Dillard's store will be during their Grand Opening Fashion Gala on November 9th.
Dillards is celebrating 40 years in Amarillo, it's our anniversary 40 years. Guess who else, the High Plains Food Bank also celebrating 40 years, so we're celebrating it at the gala together. A percentage of the proceeds of all those sales will go to help with nutritious meals. Our goal is 144,000 meals in this three-hour event to provide for the Panhandle. That'll be huge.
The Fashion Gala is a private event and Dillard's is currently selling tickets for the Fashion Gala. They are $50. Here's the cool thing about the tickets for the Fashion Gala, your ticket is a $50 gift card that you will be able to use to purchase merchandise at the Fashion Gala. The Fashion Gala will be full of fun, fashion, food, and shopping. Miss Texas Averie Bishop and Miss Texas' Outstanding Teen J-bell Kimbrell, will be attending the Fashion Gala (and the Grand Opening), fashion designers and well-known social media influencers will also be attending.
Where can I buy tickets to the Fashion Gala?
Tickets may be purchased at the Customer Service Desk at the current Dillard's location. They are only selling 400 tickets for the Fashion Gala, and I was told that they have already sold over 200 tickets.
When is the official Grand Opening to the public?
The official Grand Opening will be on Thursday, November 10th. Festivities will begin at 9:30 am.
During our grand opening, the first 200 customers lined up, will get a swag bag. They'll have beauty products and there are some gift cards ranging from $5 to $500. And some coupons from local businesses around the store.
They said that they will be giving away over $5000 in gift cards in those swag bags alone.
The Grand Opening giveaways and gifts with purchases will continue until Monday, November 14th. You'll have the opportunity to win shopping sprees, wardrobe giveaways, and gift baskets. Prizes from Dio, MAC, Jo Malone, and Michael Kors just to name a few.
