Overland Sheepskin Company to Make Sundance Square its First Texas Store
FORT WORTH, Texas (September 16, 2014) – Overland Sheepskin Company will open its first Texas store in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square in the Old City National Bank Building. The 4,400 square foot store will be located on the first floor with an entrance on Houston Street and an entrance on 2nd Street facing the Worthington Renaissance Hotel.
Overland Sheepskin Company was founded by the Leahy Family in Taos, New Mexico in 1973 and is now headquartered in Fairfield, Iowa. Their unique product line features premium apparel such as shearling coats, leather jackets, hats, leather bags and gloves, sheepskin slippers and boots, along with sheepskin and cowhide rugs, and sheepskin and leather accessories and specialty products.
“Overland has a classic, rich product line that will pair nicely with the other exclusive retailers in Sundance Square such as Leddy’s Ranch,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “Attracting retail shops continues to be a top priority and having another specialized retailer in the mix just adds to the diversity of Sundance Square.”
Construction will begin this month and is expected to be completed in time for the Christmas shopping season.
This will be the first store in Texas for the high quality retailer, which already has a loyal Texas customer base who currently shop at Overland’s New Mexico and Colorado stores, and online at Overland.com. Sundance Square continues to add retail shops along Houston Street, giving this historical Fort Worth street a new identity. Recently added stores include Loft, Coyote, Flowers to Go, and White House, Black Market.
Sundance Square, a 35-block office, retail and entertainment development in downtown Fort Worth, completed the plaza in November 2013 featuring two new Class A office buildings, several new restaurants, retail shops, a multi-purpose stage, four 32 foot tall umbrellas, and 2,000 square foot pavilion.
