Home decor chain sees big opportunity in Texas

At Home Group continues to expand its store network in the Lone Star state. 
 
The fast-growing retailer announced the grand openings of three locations in the greater Houston area, including a newly redeveloped store in Katy, Texas, that opens on July 19. Construction is underway on stores in Pearland and Richmond, Texas, that are slated to open in the fall. The Katy location is one of seven At Home stores in the greater Houston area, and one of 26 in Texas. 
 
"With the opening of these three locations in the greater Houston area, we are executing on the tremendous opportunity that we see in this market," said At Home chairman and CEO  Lee Bird. "As a brand that was born in Texas, At Home is proud to continue this strategic expansion not only in Houston but across the state." 
 
At Home is opening more than 25  stores year. The company, which went public in August 2016, has achieved a 20%  top-line compound annual growth rate over the past four fiscal years. 
 
The 135,000-sq.-ft. Katy store offers over 50,000 home décor items from furniture, mirrors, rugs, art and housewares to tabletop, patio and seasonal items, including more than 100 different artificial Christmas tree varieties. 
 
"The site of our new Katy store is rich in history as one of the original locations for At Home's precursor Garden Ridge, and it is the first completely rebuilt At Home store," said At Home store drector Robert Cortino. 
 
At Home is headquartered in Plano, Texas, and currently operates 135 stores in 33 states
