Tandy Leather Factory Inc. has opened a new retail store in Round Rock, north of Austin, bringing the Fort Worth-based company’s store inventory to 80.
“Austin is a great market for us and is large enough to support a second store in the area,” said president and CEO Jon Thompson in a news release.
“We believe having a store on the north side of the city will allow us to further expand our customer base there,” Thompson said.
Serving as store manager will be Deatra Cole, who recently completed management training the company’s flagship store in Fort Worth.
The Round Rock store is at 2001 Enterprise Drive, Suite 130.
