TreeHouse, the Austin-based eco-friendly home improvement store, is working to open its first store built from the ground up in Dallas.
The store, at the northeast corner of Walnut Hill Lane and N. Central Expressway, is scheduled to open in June, The Dallas Morning News reported.
The store should get plenty of interest from both the home improvement and the environmental sectors.
“I want people to walk in and say, ‘this is it,’” co-founder Jason Ballard, 34, told the Morning News.

The store offers a mix of healthy-living and environmentally-friendly products, designs, and services, the newspaper said.
One unique feature of the store is that it will run on its own power via solar panels on its roof.
The original TreeHouse store in Austin opened in 2011 in a space that was abandoned by the Borders bookstore company.
TreeHouse plans to expand into other markets.
Houndstooth Coffee will open inside two small houses built on the property along the N. Central Expressway frontage road, the Morning News said. Also, Tesla is going to open a Supercharger station next to Houndstooth and TreeHouse’s outdoor living display area.
It will be the first Tesla Supercharger station inside the city of Dallas. Tesla owners will be able to recharge their all-electric cars at the station.
