Schakolad Owner Expands Presence in Downtown Fort Worth

FORT WORTH (July 5, 2016) – Ask a child if they want to visit a chocolate shop or a toy store and the answer will always be yes! Now, a visit to Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth will make any age child, young or old, very happy with the addition of Houston Street Toy Company, scheduled to open before Christmas.

The 1,843-square-foot store will be located between Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Overland Sheepskin Company on Houston Street.

The store will feature high-quality toys and books for infants to teens including games, puzzles, books, musical toys, plush animals, arts and crafts, and educational toys.

“Bringing Houston Street Toy Company to life in Sundance Square has been a long-term goal and I’m glad to see it coming to fruition,” said owner Lindsey Ross, Houston Street Toy Company owner and the owner of Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Sundance Square. “We will open the store just in time for holiday shopping season and will offer kids a magical experience.”

Sundance Square continues to expand its retail offerings and attracting a broader audience for the 35-block mixed-use development.

“Opening a toy store in Sundance Square fills a niche we believe will draw new customers,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “We are always looking to add stores that will attract a savvy customer who enjoys a fabulous shopping experience. We are the only North Texas destination where you can valet your car for free in one location and then pick it up at another location with a validated ticket.”

Launched in 2012, Sundance Square’s complimentary valet service has 10 locations throughout the development for guests to utilize. The valet service enhances Sundance Square’s extensive parking program that includes free parking during the weeknights and all weekend.

Sundance Square is a vibrant 35-block commercial, residential, entertainment and retail district where people work, live, shop and dine among beautiful landscaping, red-brick streets and turn-of-the-century buildings. More information about Sundance Square can be found at
