US-based Spanish fashion retailer Mango is hitting Texas.
The men’s and women’s apparel retailer plans to open at the Galleria Dallas later this year and the Stonebriar Center in Frisco early next year.
Brookfield Properties, which owns Stonebriar, has entered into a deal for seven Mango stores.
“Stonebriar is on fire and is getting a lot of attention and could attract big stores like Lululemon and Samsung,” said Rob Michaels, senior vice president of leasing for Brookfield Properties.
Mango’s U.S. expansion comes as mall-based apparel retailers such as Gap shuttered dozens of stores during the pandemic and others such as Christopher & Banks & Limited filed for bankruptcy.
The Galleria store will open this fall in Mall One near Tiffany & Co. It plans to open 40 stores next year.
Three more will be located at Brookfield Malls in Texas: Baybrook Mall in Friendswood near Houston and two in San Antonio at North Star Mall and The Shops at La Cantera.
“We have the best malls in Texas,” Michaels said. The malls range in size from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet, Michael said.
Other Brookfield malls that Mango has signed leases are Perimeter Mall in Atlanta and Victoria Gardens and Glendale Galleria in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
With annual sales of more than $2 billion, Mango dwarfs Spanish fast fashion retailer Zara, one of the largest fashion retailers with annual sales of nearly $30 billion.
Another fast fashion competitor outside of China, Shane had a revival during the outbreak. It closed sales with Zara and Sweden’s H&M, according to estimates in . Wall Street Journal.
Mango previously had a large footprint in the US through an exclusive department store deal with JCPenney. In the year In 2011, it began opening stores in Penney stores under the MNG label Mango, and by the time the partnership ended in 2015, it had expanded to 600 JCPenney stores.
