Retail News: Houston’s first Shoppers World opens June 8th

Shoppers World will open its first Houston location on June 8th, according to the Houston Business Journal.  The store at 10701 Jones Rd, Houston, TX 77065, will complete the reconfiguration of the former Target in Steeplechase Plaza. The building was vacated in 2006 when Target, which built the structure, moved to a larger location along FM 1960. The first portion to be redeveloped was the right third of the building, which was renovated as a Planet Fitness in 2012. The gym would move out, relocating further down Jones Road in 2018, leaving the space completely vacant again. Until Ollie’s Bargain Outlet opened in the left portion of the former Target in 2021. After Ollie’s moved in, the former gym began a renovation into a nail and salon space, which is currently still ongoing. Shoppers World will occupy the remaining center portion of the former Target and will also be the chain’s first location in Houston. HHR contacted Shoppers World for more information on their new store but did not receive a response.
