Crossover buying at Dallas' merged markets

Dallas Market Center to offer unique crossover buying opportunities with its combined March Markets

Dallas Market Center today announced that its combined Apparel & Accessories and Total Home & Gift Markets, running March 25-28, will provide unique crossover buying opportunities and offer buyers access to thousands of products all available under one roof.

The combined markets will feature the exclusive opportunity to shop offerings across all categories from luxury gift, home accents, furniture, housewares, gourmet and seasonal items to apparel, footwear and accessories. In addition, buyers can shop baby, children and juvenile products at the overlapping KidsWorld Market, March 23-28, Western lifestyle, apparel, and accessory lines at Dallas Western Market, March 25-28, as well as bridal and special occasion at The One – It’s All About the Dress, March 28-30.

“Dallas Market Center is the only destination in the country where a retailer can fulfill a comprehensive mix of merchandise across the product landscape for their business,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “We continue to see crossover buying with retailers incorporating a complete lifestyle of the consumer into the store to satisfy their needs. Access to this vast array of product during one market will provide buyers a higher return on investment mitigated by travel expense and less time away from their stores.”

A number of networking opportunities, trend forecasting, special events and seminars will be available to market attendees. On Wednesday, March 25 at 5:45 p.m., the Doneger group will present key Fall 2015 looks in Cotemporary Sportswear during a seminar directly followed by the latest color, fabric and pattern stories in contemporary and bridge categories live on the runway during the Fall 2015 Trend Fashion Show at 6:15 p.m. In addition, the Cowboy Color: Western Trend Fashion Show will be held Thursday, March 26 at 5:45 p.m. For a full list of events and offerings, visit
