At noon on April 6th, IDO Florida Mall officially welcomed its first new customers! The ‘soft opening’ unveiled the first outlet stores in the west wing of Regency Square in Jacksonville, Florida, offering lighting, outdoor furnishings, hand tools, fishing equipment and stainless steel marine accessories. Final preparations continued right up until noon, with some data cable upgrades being finished just before customers arrived.
The day was a long-awaited success, marking the official beginning of limited retail operations for these IDO manufacturers. Meanwhile, remodeling continues for other retailers at this location as they look forward to their own openings, slated for the upcoming months.
“IDO took the home décor outlet mall from ‘great idea’ to ‘great opportunity’. Today, that opportunity became a reality, thanks to the hard work of many talented people, dedicated to making great things happen.”
The next openings will include a restaurant and more home décor stores, and the introduction of new product lines in IDO’s Expo Terra Trading Co., a showcase store concept for new manufacturers and home décor categories.
