OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 24 FUTURE SHOP T he Texas Rangers move into their new stadium in Arlington later this month, but we can already hear the cheers: The high-tech retractable roof at Globe Life Field means fans can watch a game in air-conditioned bliss. Here are a few more things the $1.2 billion ballpark has us buzzing about. Design team: HKS Architects of Dallas. Cozy: The stadium will grow from five to seven levels, putting fans up to 23 feet closer to the field. Kick back: Each seat will be two inches wider (yes!). But there will be fewer of them: 40,300. Most envied fans: The ones sitting in the Field suites behind home plate, closer to home plate than the pitcher on the mound. Yer out! The Balcones Speakeasy, named after the Waco whiskey maker, is almost sold out for the season. Rocking chairs? You'll find them on the Texas Sky Porch overlooking the outfield, an area that celebrates Lone Star hospitality and culture. Save these dates: March 14: Chris Stapleton and Willie Nelson headline the stadium's first concert; March 31: Season opener against the Los Angeles Angels. globelifefield. Courtney Dabney NEED TO KNOW BASIS: GLOBE LIFE FIELD F ebruary was a big month for Macy's. In the same week that the 161-year-old brand announced it would close 125 department stores over the next three years, it opened an entirely new kind of store to take it into the future. Market by Macy's made its debut in Texas, with a small, tightly edited store at Southlake Town Square, with plans to open the next Market by Macy's location in Fort Worth's WestBend development later this year. In the Southlake prototype, departments stocked with locally made products, online cult brands, and a handful of Macy's own labels are arrayed throughout an airy 20,000-square-foot space. Artwork and signage throughout tells the story of the people who produce the goods. There's a cafe called Herald (designed by Swoon, The Studio), emphasizing North Texas food and drink, and a beauty department called Gretchell's Apothecary, stocking classic and cult lines. The store also offers classes, book signings, and pop-ups. The idea, according to Macy's brand experience officer Rachel Shechtman, is to create a layered experience, something she famously did with her New York boutique Story, which Macy's acquired in 2018 when she was hired. "We gathered a group for a brainstorm and asked, 'If we're launching a new physical retail experience that we want to be relevant a decade from now, what does that need to look like?'" Shechtman says. Part of the answer was provided by Market's director of editorial and programming, Christina Geyer, former editor in chief of PaperCity Dallas and Fort Worth, and Herald's restaurant consultant, Leslie Brenner, former restaurant critic at the Dallas Morning News. That's Texas talent taking shopping into the future.
