According to culturemap.com, American Girl will be opening up a 16,000 square-foot store in Memorial City Mall Houston! Scheduled to open this summer, it will contain both a retail store and a restaurant. This will be the second store in Texas and the thirteenth in the United States.
American Girl, founded in 1986, creates books, dolls, clothes, toys, and accessories, many of which are based on fictional historical characters. The line has products geared towards girls from preschool age through her tween years.
UPDATE: Opening January 30, 2013, Whole Foods has recently announced a public “Bread Breaking Ceremony” at 7:30AM to welcome Katy residents to its newest location!
Soon, Katy shoppers will be able to shop at Whole Foods Market Inc. locally!
Scheduled to open in 2013, the new 37,000 square foot Whole Foods Market will be located in the Grand Lakes Marketplace commercial center at the east side of Texas 99 at Fry Road. Stein Mart department store and Cost Plus World Market are also scheduled to open there.
Lance LaCour, president/CEO of the Katy Area Economic Development Council states, “Having a Whole Foods location in our community says that the Katy area has arrived at the top shelf for best grocery stores.”
Now that Carina is crawling like a pro and using her walker all over the house, we have caught her exploring cabinets and drawers. Besides keeping some doors shut all the way and placing lots of outlet covers, I hadn’t thought about baby-proofing very much. When I found the KidCo Adhesive Mount Magnet Lock system, I was very skeptical but got the starter kit anyway. Boy, am I glad that I did! These are extremely easy to place (no screws and drills involved – unless you want to use them!) and now, Baby can’t get to the pots and pans! I highly recommend these cabinet/drawer locks for anyone who has little kids around the house.
Next up, Toilet Seat Locks! I guess they’re at the right height to get her attention?
