Buyers, Buyers Everywhere
At the end of the day, the number of buyers walking through our doors is a pretty big number, around 200,000 actually. And our buyers are loyal. Maybe it’s the ability to shop across categories. Maybe it’s our convenient location in the center of the U.S. Maybe it’s just our Texas hospitality. Whatever the case, more than 84 percent of our buyers don’t even consider shopping anywhere but Dallas. It’s no wonder we’ve earned fans from 50 states and 84 countries. And of course, no market center delivers buyers from Mid-America like we do.
