Wednesday is opening day for first J. Crew Mercantile

Earlier this month, J. Crew said it would open the first of its new J. Crew Mercantile stores in Dallas.
No date was available at the time. Opening day is Wednesday, July 22. Let me know if you head to the Shops at Park Lane to check it out.
Earlier, J. Crew had said the Park Lane location would be a J. Crew Factory store. Much of merchandise that the company makes for the Factory chain will also be sold in the Mercantile stores. 
It’s not surprising that J. Crew is opening its new concept in Dallas. J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler is a fan of NorthPark Center across North Central Expressway from the Shops at Park Lane.
The company’s first Crewcuts children’s apparel store and Madewell women’s shop opened at NorthPark.
“Mickey is here often,” said NorthPark Center co-owner Nancy Nasher.
