Five new retailers have signed on to open their doors in The Shops at Lakeside in 2016.
They include a bike shop, yoga/training studio, flower/home decor retailer, and two women’s clothing and accessories boutiques.
The additions will bring the number of retailers in Lakeside to 19, nine of which are now open (see status map).
“We are excited that these five businesses selected Lakeside,” said Jimmy Archie, managing partner of Realty Capital, developer of Lakeside DFW.
“They see in Lakeside the kind of environment and demographics that can enhance their image and their sales,” he said.

Jennifer Purifoy’s take on high-end and luxury women’s clothing, jewelry, handbags, shoes, and accessories.
Brie Washington is bringing her Colleyville boutique — specializing in upscale, trending clothing — to Lakeside.
“In turn, their presence will help The Shops at Lakeside become the kind of shopping experience that so many in Flower Mound have been seeking.”
Giant Bicycles stands out among the new additions and will occupy 3,500 sf near the intersection of Lakeside Parkway and Surrey Lane.
“The Giant store will serve the many biking enthusiasts who ride our streets and the Northshore Trail,” Archie said. “It is a perfect fit for Lakeside.”
This will be Giant’s first brand store in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. Giant, the leading performance bike manufacturer in the world, has additional brand stores located in Denver, London, Scottsdale, Paris, Boston, Melbourne, and Santa Monica.
“[The women’s boutiques] will bring a sense of fashion to Lakeside Parkway and add to the window-shopping experience.”

The women’s boutiques (Hello Daffodil and Briesly’s Boutique) and Bloom-A-Round (flowers, gifts, home decor) suggest that more soft goods retailers may be in store for Lakeside.
“They will bring a sense of fashion to Lakeside Parkway,” said Archie, “and add to the window-shopping experience.”
The roster at The Shops at Lakeside now includes five food options, six service providers, two entertainment venues, four soft goods stores, and two retail offices (see directory map), all within walking distance of Lakeside residents.
“The tenant mix at Lakeside DFW,” said Mark Wood, economic development director for the Town of Flower Mound, “is a tremendous asset to the entire Lakeside Business District.
“Employers want quality places to eat and shop, outdoor activities such as trails, and entertainment spots like Moviehouse & Eatery within walking distance or at least close by for their employees.”
“We are on the short-list for several very exciting projects circling DFW,” Wood added. “These projects would help out Lakeside DFW by providing additional daytime and evening population.
“At the same time, Lakeside DFW helps in the recruitment of these projects. It’s a great symbiotic relationship.”
Only six retail spaces remain unfilled in Phase I of The Shops at Lakeside.
Construction on Phase II is expected to begin in mid 2016.
