PLANO, Texas – August 23, 2017 – Legacy West is pleased to welcome the newest lineup of stores and restaurants opening this fall.  As North Texas’ premier mixed-use development continues to expand its shopping and dining opportunities, more than a dozen new businesses are set to open their doors.  They will join Legacy West’s family of best-in-class  tenants including the recently opened flagship Frontgate store, Warby Parker, and first-in-DFW Tommy Bahama Store and Restaurant.  Among the new openings are the largest food hall in North Texas and new concepts from both Barnes & Noble and Starbucks that offer a fresh experience from old favorites.
