It's been about a year since we last updated you all on all the exciting growth that has been happening in Rogers. Last year we saw tons of new restaurants and shops open in Rogers and guess what folks, the same can be said for 2014! I'll break it down by shopping district again so you'll know exactly where to find all the great new places.
Pinnacle Hills Shopping Area
The Pinnacle Hills Promenade (I-540 Exit 81 or 83) is one of the top shopping centers in this part of the country and is home to stores like Coach,Pottery Barn, Sephora, Williams-
Sonoma and many more. You'll now have even more places to shop and eat in this area. Long Horn Steakhouse and Chuy's have already opened and once the Walmart AMP opens in June, these new restaurants, along with old favorites, like Mimi's Cafe, PF Chang's and Houlihan's, just to name a few, will be the places to go before heading to a concert.
As far as shopping goes, Gearhead Outfitters recently opened at the Pinnacle Hills Promenade. This Arkansas-based, family-owned and operated shop specializes in outdoor lifestyle clothing and footwear. Gearhead features brands such as The North Face, Patagonia, and Chaco. A new shopping center, Creekside, is also underway next to Chuck E. Cheese's, which is just down from the Promenade. Once we learn what tenants have leased space, we'll let you know! And last, but not least, Core Brewing Company is opening a tap room in Rogers near Einstein Bagels and Bariola's Pizza. It will be located up on the hill with a great view overlooking the area.
The Scottsdale Center is a large shopping center just off of 150 at 85 in Rogers and is home to dozens of national retail chains like Charming Charlie, Kohls, Gap, Petco, Pier One, HomeGoods, Marshall's, Belk, and Barnes and Noble. It's also home to restaurants like Chili's, On the Border, Copelands and Johnny Carino's. Deciding where to eat in this area just got even harder with the opening of Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers and Boars Nest BBQ.
I just love the beauty of brick streets and small-town charm of Rogers' historic dowtown district. It's turning into quite the hub for craft beer lovers with the opening of Ozark Beer Company (shameless plug: #13 on the 100 Things To Do in Rogers Series) and Brick Street Brews. Brick Street Brews has a variety of local craft beers on tap and a quaint, relaxing patio out back. It's a great place to kick up your heels after a long week! Between Brick Street and Heirloom Food and Wine, which now offers wine and small bites Tuesdays - Fridays from 5pm - 8pm, downtown Rogers is a great place to visit for happy hour. A new furniture store and an events center, The Grand at 117, will also be opening in the downtown area later this year.
Pleasant Crossing & Tuscany Square
I'll be the first to admit that I am just as excited as my kids about the High Rise trampoline park that is slated to open by the end of summer at 4301 Dixieland Road. High Rise will feature 15,000 square feet of trampolines, a dodge ball court, basketball hoops mounted above trampolines and a pit of foam cubes.
Also being developed in this area is the Shoppes at Pleasant Crossing shopping center. This area will be home to two restaurants, a fitness center and a nail salon. We know another restaurant and retail store are also slated for this area, but the names can't be released just yet... stay tuned!
We'll continue to update this post when more stores and restaurants are announced or revealed. What's your favorite new restaurant? What others would you like to see open?
