same street, different location
Tootsies is moving to West Ave
It's finally official: Tootsies is moving.
After more than three decades in Highland Village, the upscale women's clothing store will relocate roughly a mile east on Westheimer to West Ave, a mixed-use complex at Kirby Drive. The store will occupy 34,000 square feet on the ground level.
The move has been long-rumored in real estate circles as Tootsies owner Mickey Rosmarin has looked to relocate to other proposed mixed use sites before landing at West Ave. Highland Village CEO Haidar Barbouti told the Chronicle the old Tootsies building will be torn down and replaced by 100,000 square feet of retail space and with underground parking.
