Dallas’ KidBiz Boutique Makes a Move to Inwood Village
Dallas, TX, July 9 2018 – KidBiz and TheBiz, currently located in The Plaza at Preston Center, announced today that they will be moving their 30-year old business to a larger space at Inwood Village. The beloved KidBiz brand, commonly known in the community as “Everybody’s favorite kid store,” made the thoughtful decision to leave The Plaza after over 25 years. The move is scheduled for early September followed by a Grand Opening soiree shortly after.
In a note to staffers, KidBiz owners Janet and Jay Finegold wrote that Inwood Village was selected “because of its location and mix of tenants.” Because Inwood Village is marked by mainly individually owned stores, local restaurants and boutiques, it’s the perfect neighborhood to give KidBiz a new beginning. Additionally, for 23 years the Finegolds have recognized the importance of “shop local” and being part of a community. It is what has kept their clientele coming back and turned customers into friends; another reason this move seems a natural transition. “Inwood Village is a natural selection for us. Many of our customers from the Park Cities and North Dallas already spend time there because of the number of local businesses they support. Inwood Village has that small town, friendly vibe that is in keeping with the Kidbiz brand. Janet and I are both excited and energized by this move,” said Jay Finegold.
The change not only brings a fresh location but also a fresh look and feel. Designed by Dallas’ renowned Coeval Studio, the new boutique will be larger, accompanied by high ceilings and modern color schemes. It is being designed so that the new layout makes it easier for shoppers to navigate the carefully curated merchandise mix. In addition to the existing KidBiz and TheBiz brands, the new location will also include a Jon Hart store-within-a-store concept. Jon Hart is one of the boutiques most sought-after brands and now shoppers can enjoy the new “Jon Hart Shop at The Biz.” The store will continue to house all the same dynamic mix of designers and will continue to add new brands year-round.

About KidBiz and TheBiz
KidBiz began in Dallas, Texas in 1989 by a former couture buyer for Neiman Marcus. She envisioned a store featuring fashion-forward designer clothes for kids and infants. In August 1995, Janet and Jay Finegold purchased the 1,200 square foot Dallas Park Cities neighborhood boutique for Janet to run. Janet’s 11 years experience buying for Foley’s and 6 years wholesale experience with Polo Ralph Lauren made her the ideal owner to take the original concept to a higher level. In August 1998, the Finegold’s built a store twice as large next door to the original, and in October 1999, they broke through to the old space and began TheBiz for teen girls and young adults. After overseeing the expansions, Jay joined Janet in operating KidBiz.
Our philosophy is simple – we provide the newest and most fun fashions, gifts and accessories with personal service. We are part of the community and enjoy our neighbors and friends as customers. As proponents of “Shop Local,” KidBiz and TheBiz have a large customer base throughout DFW and the state. Our staff is anchored by fashion merchandising or fashion design graduates and experienced moms and grandmoms who know a thing or two about putting clothes on a kid.
