A Dallas retail concept is saying "so long" to Houston. According to a release, Forty Five Ten will close its pop-up boutique in the River Oaks District upon the conclusion of its lease this fall.

The closure is part of a series of changes being executed that include a consolidation of Forty Five Ten's presence to its flagship store in downtown Dallas.

That includes the closure of the Forty Five Ten For Home store on McKinney Avenue, which will close on July 31. Now through its last day of business, For Home will host a massive So Long Sale with merchandise up to 75 percent off.  Sale will include furniture, home accessories, rugs, lighting, display fixtures, and decorative pieces. Maybe worth a field trip?

This follows the company's May announcement that the T Room at Forty Five Ten, its longtime ladies-who-lunch eatery on McKinney Avenue, will close on June 30. McKinney Ave nay, downtown Dallas yay.

Basically, Headington Companies is tidying things up. That includes the Tenoversix boutique transitioning from its location in the lobby of The Joule downtown Dallas hotel into Forty Five Ten on Main in fall 2018.

President and chief creative officer Kristen Cole says they're making a push for downtown.

"I'm excited for customers to see our take on new assortments in design and objects that reinforce art as a guiding hand in how we collaborate and curate," she says. "Our downtown flagship is a long-term investment for both Forty Five Ten and Headington Companies, so refocusing our efforts, our products and our people there is a very necessary and equally exciting step for the sister brands. We are big believers in the growth of downtown and are happy to be rooted in its future."

Interior updates to the Main Street flagship location, as well as to the Highland Park Village store are on track for completion this fall.

And Forty Five Ten remains focused on the construction and design of its new flagship store in New York City's Hudson Yards, which opens Spring 2019, an Aspen location in Fall 2018, as well as an ecommerce launch.
