(MENAFN Editorial) The Great Republic (TGR) announces the opening of its newest pop-up shop at Highland Park Village in Dallas, Texas. The shop opens on November 1, 2018 and runs through January 15, 2019, bringing a unique opportunity for all to own significant pieces of American art, memorabilia, and history.
This is the company's first retail location in Texas following the success of their pop-up shops in: Aspen, Colo., The St. Regis, New York, The Ritz Carlton, Arlington, Va., and The Mandarin Oriental, Washington, D.C. TGR opened their first retail location in 2013 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo., followed shortly after by a second location at CityCenterDC in Washington, D.C. The stores have been widely praised for a unique product mix that includes antique, historical Americana, as well as handcrafted contemporary American-made items.
The Dallas pop-up offers a limited time opportunity to see and buy from the curated collection of historically significant objects, contemporary made goods, and fine and decorative art representing nearly three centuries of American history. Antiques included in the collection are rare 19th century U.S. maps, engravings, sculptures, antique flags, and signed political memorabilia and memoirs by Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Mark Twain, Sam Houston, and Alexander Hamilton.
"We've worked hard to create a retail experience unlike any other – offering our guests and clients an opportunity to step back into time and potentially own something neither they, nor anyone else, would easily have found elsewhere in the world," Eddie Papczun, the company's Founder and Managing Partner said.
Prior to this endeavor, Mr. Papczun was the Founder and President of Golf Links to the Past at The Shops at the Lodge at Pebble Beach, considered by many to be the world's leading golf antiques business, which he sold in 2008.
