Outside, Texas has set up shop on Lowest Greenville.

The retailer closed its Mockingbird Station location in December and is at 1925 Greenville Ave., where Bella & Brawn was. Bella & Brawn plans to open in March in the Bishop Arts District.

Brandon Yates, the co-founder and owner of the store, said the Mockingbird Station location was initially supposed to be a two-month pop-up. The shopping center ended up being Outside, Texas’ home for 14 months.

Yates also said the shopping center didn’t drive a lot of foot traffic.

“When we found an opportunity to have something here on Lower Greenville, jumped all over it,” Yates said.

Outside, Texas will eventually be moving to a spot across the street on Greenville, where construction is ongoing. Three tenants — including Outside, Texas in the middle — are planned for the area, which is now fenced off. Yates hopes to be open in the new location by March.

Yates said the space across the street is almost exactly the same width as its temporary location but is a little deeper and has a mezzanine.

“I’m really excited about the feel it’s going to have,” Yates said. “There’ll be lots of windows up in the front, so good lighting.”

Coming: A salon called Body 2.0 Beauty Bar is planned for the area. A certificate of occupancy is pending, and there’s a sign up announcing the business.
