Katy, TX News (June 3, 2014) – Gallery Furniture officially broke ground on the new Gallery Furniture Fort Bend/Grand Parkway on Tuesday, June 3, 2014.
Jim “Mack” McIngvale, owner of Gallery Furniture, along with Keenon Rayner of Identity Architects, Dave Cannon of Trend Development, Ft. Bend County Precinct 4 Commissioner James Patterson, and Yvonne Tuttle Streit of The Brookwood Community, were on hand to welcome Gallery Furniture to the Long Meadow Farms and Fort Bend County community.
Festivities included a special appearance from the Brookwood Community hand bell choir and ended with a surprise skywriter that will landscape the Houston skies this afternoon with #gfgp, a social media hashtag that will lead to information and renderings for the new Gallery Furniture location.
The store, which will be the third and largest Gallery Furniture location in Houston, is expected to open in late November/December and will be located at The Market at Long Meadow Farms, 7301 W. Grand Parkway South, Richmond, TX 77407 (next to the Santikos Palladium theater).
Plans for the 165,000 sq. ft. showroom include amenities such as an indoor playground and tree house for children and a full service restaurant. The new Gallery Furniture will also include an area where residents of The Brookwood Community for disabled adults will sell their products. Services available also include Gallery Movers, a full-service moving company that utilizes the stores’ highly trained and meticulous delivery staff.
