Preston Royal Village will be a little less fashionable after Talula closes its stylish doors at 6 p.m. Saturday. Owner Victoria Jackson said she and her husband were moving to Mexico after doing business for five years in Preston Hollow. Customers will have one last chance to shop at Talula, with the final clearance sale slashing prices by 75 to 80 percent today and tomorrow.
The move is bittersweet for Candace Williams, owner of the neighboring Toy Maven, which will absorb the 1,200 square foot space vacated by Talula.
“We’re sorry to see them go, but we’re excited about expanding our store,” Williams said.
Williams has a host of ideas for what to do with the extra real estate, including hosting more special events, increasing the overall organization of the store, improving the book selection, and adding more interactive displays and games.
“We really want our store to be a destination place for kids and families,” she said.
Williams hopes to have the expansion complete by early September.
