Several stores at Market Street and The Woodlands Mall reopened on a limited basis April 24, weeks after many retailers at the shopping centers were temporarily shuttered due to local and state closure orders.

Participating stores will operate under a curbside delivery model, in line with Gov. Greg Abbott's guidelines allowing select retailers to reopen beginning April 24 as an initial phase in his plan to restart Texas' economy.

On April 24, Market Street announced several tenants that reopened for limited service. Shoppers will be able to place orders for pickup or home delivery, and those wishing to receive their orders in person can visit stores for curbside service. Participating stores include:

  • Louis Vuitton, open daily from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

  • Hemline, open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

  • Kendra Scott, open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

  • Luxe Custom Collective, open Monday through Friday from 3-6 p.m.

  • The Woodhouse Day Spa, open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

  • Thomas Markle Jewelers, open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday from noon-5 p.m.

Several stores at Market Street that were deemed essential and have continued operating for in-store shopping include H-E-B, The Joint, LensCrafters, Relax the Back, Thrive Drip Spa, Vogue Cleaners and Wells Fargo. The shopping center also features restaurants serving to-go orders including Chipotle, Cru, Grotto, La Madeleine, Potbelly, Sweet Paris Creperie and Café, Uni Sushi and Zoe’s Kitchen. More information about Market Street's to-go offerings may be found here.

“We are so thankful that our boutiques are able to adapt to a different way to conduct business in the wake of COVID-19,” Noemi Gonzalez, Market Street's marketing director, said in a statement. “Market Street stands by and is ready to support our retailers and restaurants any way we can.”

As of April 24, The Woodlands Mall also had a list of several stores that would be participating in a retail to-go service model. According to the mall, stores will be open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Customers may place orders in advance for curbside pickup at exterior store entrances or a central pickup location on the mall's north side between Nordstrom and JCPenney.

"Guests will park in one of the numbered parking spaces, alert the appropriate store of the make and model of their vehicle, along with the parking space number. Employees of the store will then bring the purchased items directly to the vehicle. There will be no need for the guests to get out of their vehicles," Rachel Wille, senior public relations and social media specialist for Brookfield Properties, said in an email.

Participating The Woodlands Mall retailers include:

  • Barnes & Noble

  • Dick's Sporting Goods

  • Dillard's

  • Macy's

  • Nordstrom's

  • Oil and Vinegar

  • Pet Fair

  • Pink

  • Victoria's Secret

  • Xfinity

Restaurants at the mall offering to-go ordering include The Cheesecake Factory, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Peli Peli, and P.F. Chang's. More information about The Woodlands Mall's curbside program may be found here.
