CityCenter of CityNorth is pleased to announce the opening of Almond Tree Wedding Boutique at High Street on February 1. The shop features a tremendous selection of new and consigned designer wedding gowns, jewelry and accessories.

Almond Tree Wedding Boutique will occupy more than 6,000 square feet as the largest retail tenant on High Street. The boutique, which is relocating from a warehouse storefront location at Cave Creek and the Loop 101, will triple in size to meet the demands of its growing clientele. Brides will enjoy shopping from more than 600 exquisite gowns that are stunning, yet affordable, at the new High Street location.

“We are delighted that Almond Tree Wedding Boutique chose to expand into this beautiful new location on High Street,” said Leslie Himley, Marketing Director for CityCenter of CityNorth. “Its quality and quantity of inventory, caliber of service and affordability will greatly benefit North Valley brides.”

The boutique has experienced 65 percent growth year-over-year since it opened in January 2010. With a larger space on High Street, Almond Tree will serve up to five brides at once, with personal one-on-one service. The boutique will continue to offer on-site alterations, gown customization services and accessories such as veils and jewelry to its growing clientele.

“We are thrilled to be part of CityCenter of CityNorth and love the North Central Phoenix location,” said Pam Hardy, Fashion Director and co-owner of Almond Tree Wedding Boutique. “Our luxurious, expanded showroom will allow even more brides to find their perfect dress among hundreds of wedding gowns at half off regular retail pricing.”

“Our growth has been astounding since we opened in 2010,” added Hardy. “Given the economic environment, it is understandable that our business model fits with today’s budget-minded brides, eager to find the perfect dress for their special day.”

Shop hours at the new location at CityCenter of CityNorth will be Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.  Fittings and alterations are by appointment only to ensure the highest level of personal service.
