A sign inside the Rochester Big and Tall store at the Uptown Collection strip center on Westheimer at Yorktown describes the new-concept superstore soon to take it over: Destination XL will be “an experience . . . where life, style and size has no boundaries!” Conveniently, exercise equipment store Hest Fitness Products has vacated the space next door. That’ll make it easier for the large-size men’s clothing store to . . . expand: Workers will bust through the wall separating the 2 spaces, and Destination XL will take over all 11,000 sq. ft.
Casual Male Retail Group opened the first Destination XL store (or DXL for . . . um, short) outside Chicago a couple weeks ago; stores in Memphis and Las Vegas are also planned. Big and tall Texans and Rockets are expected at the 5393 Westheimer store’s grand opening on August 26.
