North Texas and shopping go hand-in-hand. It s the birthplace of the iconic Neiman Marcus, is home to America s oldest shopping center, Highland Park Village, and the world-famous NorthPark Center was the very first covered shopping mall in the United States. Dallas also boasts more shopping centers per capita than any other major U.S. city.
So it s no surprise that North Texans have combined their love of shopping with something else near and dear to their hearts philanthropy.
