Retailers and customers continue to flock to Hyde Park Village as the shopping center continues to grow. Three new retailers and an upscale restaurant will soon be calling Hyde Park Village home.
In 2015, Hyde Park Village
has become home to eight new retailers and restaurants. Gabby Soriano, who works on the development team for Hyde Park Village explains the draw for incoming establishments.
”Our location is very unique in that it’s not only a beautiful place to shop and dine, but we are also surrounded by a gorgeous neighborhood that is very community oriented,” she says. “We also have fantastic conversion rates. Our guests are quality customers that are more likely to shop than browse.”
The latest additions include Suit Supply
, a Dutch retailer, which sells upscale suits for men (scheduled to open spring 2016), The Shade Store
, a home décor company specializing in unique window treatments (scheduled to open spring 2016), Vineyard Vines
, a clothing store selling items for men, women and children (scheduled to open summer 2016).
The restaurant that will be opening in 2017, Meat Market, will be an upscale contemporary steakhouse. With locations in Miami Beach, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Palm Beach Florida, this is the first location in the Tampa Bay area.
Each of these additions have other locations throughout the U.S. or even around the globe, however, the location in Hyde Park will be each store's first appearance in the Tampa Bay area.
“Hyde Park Village has always offered beautiful and charming surroundings, which our guests appreciate and often prefer compared to the atmosphere you get in the mall,” Soriano says. "Now, we have several local and first-market retailers and restaurants which will really excite and draw a lot of interest from the community.”
Soriano goes on to say that while the village does not keep track of how much traffic goes through Hyde Park Village daily, merchants have absolutely noticed an increase since the redevelopment started earlier this year.
