The area's newest shopping destination has officially opened for business. Bryan Towne Center welcomed its first customers Sunday.
Bryan Mayor Mark Conlee and local community leaders celebrated the grand opening.
"We have enjoyed the partnership with Lauth (construction company) as they have embraced our vision for the City of Bryan," Conlee said. "The Bryan Towne Center is a model retail development that will benefit the City of Bryan for years to come. The grand opening and ribbon cutting is a long-awaited event and we are thrilled to have the Center as the latest retail addition to the community."
"Bryan Towne Center will become a true retail destination in the Bryan/College Station market," said Dan Barkes, Director of Retail Development at Lauth. "It's hard to imagine the 116,000 cars that pass this center daily will not take notice of its beautiful features, easy access, and variety of nationally known stores."
Additional retailers that celebrated their grand opening Sunday include: Rack Room Shoes and national fashion retailers rue21 and Maurices.
Other stores will open in the coming weeks including Shipley's Do-Nuts, Nailtopia, Anytime Fitness, and Baskin Robins.
