Fresh faces at The Shops at La Cantera include retailers once found only online, and nowhere else in South Texas

SAN ANTONIO (November 11, 2019) – Patrons of The Shops at La Cantera have had an incredible mix of new options for fitness, dining and shopping pleasures in 2019 thanks to a bevy of eclectic new tenants that opened their doors at one of Texas’ premier luxury retail destinations.

Stores that were once only available as online retailers now have a brick-and-mortar presence at The Shops at La Cantera. New-to-market restaurants, retailers and health and wellness businesses made their mark here this year, further solidifying the position of The Shops as South Texas’ premier unique and upscale open-air center. This comes as The Shops approaches its 15th anniversary as an Alamo City icon.

“Fifteen years after we opened the first phase of The Shops at La Cantera, we continue to draw exciting and innovative stores to this beautiful space,” said Brian Schroeder, senior general manager at The Shops at La Cantera. “This is going to be a great holiday season to come out and see new faces, to taste new flavors and to enjoy new experiences.”

Stores like Tecovas, formerly an online-only cowboy boot retailer, added their second physical location at The Shops in July and has been well-received by patrons. Quay Australia, a once digital native retailer of sunglasses, brought their “notoriously cool sunnies” to the property as well.

The Shops will also be home to one of two American locations for high-end fashion retailer Purificación Garcia, which boasts nearly a dozen locations across Central and South America. Premium jeans maker 7 for All Mankind is another first-to-market retailer at The Shops.

While Louis Vuitton has had a store inside anchor tenant Neiman Marcus for years, they expanded their presence in 2019 with a new store to display more of its luxury French handbags and accessories in the Neiman Marcus wing of The Shops.

In May, California-based Restoration Hardware opened its doors to offer patrons the chance to enjoy its many lines of select furniture designs, including sections for children and babies.

Several new dining and food-related options are also new additions to The Shops, including upscale fast casual creperie Sweet Paris and another French-inspired café, Le Macaron French Pastries.

On the health and wellness front, Orange Theory Fitness will be coming by the end of 2019. Pop-up yoga studio Half Moon Power Yoga opened earlier in 2019 and will continue to offer its healing services to patrons at their location next to Nordstrom.

“The fact we attract so many new-to-market retailers speaks to the strength of this shopping destination, and to the strength of the San Antonio market overall,” Schroeder said. “We’re excited to have these new retailers here.  It’s good for all of our stores because it helps The Shops at La Cantera remain a fresh experience for visitors.”

As it celebrates another year of redefining destination shopping and lifestyle experience in South Texas, enjoy a diverse experience that can only be found at The Shops at La Cantera this holiday season.
