    Cool - can they go ahead and open one in the DFW, Austin, and SA markets as well?

    I would have preferred that it opened at the new Pearland Town Center....for selfish reasons(in my area and 45 traffic is a sob). That makes the one at Reliant still the place to go for me. I bet it's going to be as nice as it gets though.

    They have one of those Cowboys stores here at the Lakeline Mall in Austin. I would love to see a Texans store like that around here. Hopefully the won't be charging Reliant stadium store prices.

    Its where I reside. :texflag: Im glad its up here (obviously) because it would suck going all the way down to Reliant to go to the Texans store. It caters to a few hundred thousand people. Not that all the people up here are football fans but still its a good spot.

    I used to live in the Woodlands. The people there are far more concerned with their cell phones and SUVs. Blech. The Woodlands doesn't deserve a Texans store. The first one should have been in Houston proper.

    I'm with you, although I guess its closer for us to go to the Woodlands than the folks up in South Dallas to go to Reliant.

    Really !
    Hardly a handy location for most in the Houston area, matter of fact 'bout the most northern location in the metro area.

    Agreed. Went there this afternoon and had the whole place to myself. But since I didn't need anything I left empty handed.

    The selection was pretty good.

    ***** all you want. Nobody is listening.
    I live in the woodlands and think it's great. That's my perspective, and you are entitled to yours. But by knocking down a community with your comments makes you feel better then so be It.

    Obviously the Texans wouldn't plop a store where things wouldn't sell. So they are branching out to the near suburbs, and then possibly Dallas, San Antonio, and maybe Austin.
    I wouldn't bag the texans and a community for a store. Heck, at least there is some progress.

    Oh, and by the way, I made this whole post from my cell phone. Stereotypical....eh?

    Wtf?

    We use Blackberry's out here now to post.

    Seriously though, The Woodlands pwns. We deserve a little more love than 'Houston proper' since we drive farther to the temple on Sundays.

    I wish they had one at Willowbrook.

    The Woodlands one isn't too far out to drive though. When I need more Texans gears I'll head out there. Luckily I'm set for now :)
