Hari Mari has opened a new retail concept in Dallas, Texas. Located at 3213 Knox St., in the heart of the recently revived Knox District, the flagship store serves as the home of Hari Mari’s full footwear collection.
Each portion of the store highlights a different feature of the brand’s identity. The eastern wall pays homage to the definition of ‘Hari,’ Indonesian for “of the sun,” with the western wall reflecting ‘Mari,’ Latin for “of the sea,” with nods to travel, exploration, and adventure throughout. Hari Mari hired Dallas Based creative Agency, MoWax Visual, to design the buildout of the store.
The store will not only serve as a shopping location but also a gathering space for customers. The bar will serve complimentary ranch waters, bloody mary’s, and a favorite local craft beer always on tap. The second story will serve as the brand’s event space for parties, yoga classes, and corporate gifting events.
“We’ve dreamed of opening our own store since the day we started Hari Mari,” said Jeremy Stewart, co-founder of Hari Mari. “It’s the physical manifestation of our brand. From store design and product mix, to the details like music playlists, types of drinks served, and even the scent of the candles burned in the store, it’s beyond exciting to fill-in those pieces of Hari Mari’s brand puzzle and share them with our customers.”
“Hari Mari believes we can go on the offensive by going into retail as the country returns to normal after the pandemic,” added Jake Szczepanski, president of Hari Mari. “Coupled with the fact that the brand saw momentum during the pandemic, we are poised to expand not only at the retail level but to also expand into additional product categories and opportunities.”
Hari Mari celebrated the grand opening with family and friends on Thursday, May 13th, sponsored by Malibu Poke, TJ’s Seafood, LALO Tequila, Murray Media, Five Islands Music, Dripping Springs Vodka, Foley Family Wines, Four Corners Brewing Company, Deep Ellum Brewing Co., and Davis Street Mercantile.
