WRARE Expanding at West 7th

FORT WORTH, Texas (June 13, 2012) – West 7th, the vibrant mixed-use development located at the southeast corner of University Drive and West 7th Street, announced today that the operators of eclectic gifts and home accents shop WRARE will expand its store after negotiating a long-term lease.

The boutique, owned and operated by Fort Worth businessman and designer Adrian Wright, offers greeting cards, gifts, home accessories, fragrances and furniture showcasing styles for urban and transitional dwellings. The shop opened in May 2011 at 1,000 square feet. Located on Crockett Street between Terra Mediterranean Grill and Fireside Pies, the expanded shop will soon feature an additional 1,849 square feet for an overall store size of 2,849 square feet. Furthermore, WRARE has committed to a longer term of occupancy at the mixed-use development.

“WRARE has been pleased with its choice of the West 7th development location,” stated Wright. “The strategies for continued growth in the area were a key factor in the decision to commit to the expansion of WRARE. We will leverage the experience of the last year to expand our offerings to include exclusive products and furniture for all areas of the home. Combined with a stronger focus on our current gift, card and décor assortment, we look forward to long-term success.”

Wright anticipates having the expanded storefront open in September of this year.

“A short-term lease was previously negotiated for WRARE so Adrian could test his merchandise strategies at West 7th and determine if a long-term lease would make sense,” states Michael Wheat, executive vice president and director of leasing for Cypress Equities, the developer of West 7th. “And based on the shop’s success during the last year, we are pleased to welcome WRARE to West 7th again for a longer time period and in a larger storefront.”
