Cost Plus World Market® Celebrates The Grand Opening Of Its New Houston Location In Willowbrook Plaza

Special Weekend of In-Store Events Beginning Thursday, February 13, 2014

(OAKLAND, CA; February 4, 2014)— Cost Plus World Market® ( is thrilled to announce the opening of their newest Houston location in Willowbrook Plaza. The store, located at 17355 Tomball Parkway, will continue to have all the great merchandise for which World Market® has become known, including home furnishings, home decor, fashion accessories, and gourmet food and beverage items from around the world.

To start the celebration, a ribbon cutting with city officials and members of the local chamber of commerce on Thursday, February 13 at 9:00 am officially marks the opening of the store. In addition, the first 100 customers through the doors each day from Thursday, February 13 through Sunday, February 16, 2014 will receive a free reusable Cost Plus World Market tote bag. In addition, throughout the grand opening weekend, the new Willowbrook store will offer food and beverage sampling, live entertainment, and a daily raffle drawing, in which the store will give away two $250 World Market gift cards each day.

World Market has launched its Spring Bliss Collection to brighten up winter’s grey days. The collection is grounded in a cool color palette of pale blues, greens and neutral taupe in solids or floral and stripe patterns. Throw pillows, curtain panels, and tabletop textiles are an inexpensive way to refresh a room for the new season. Simple and pretty, vases of sea glass or wood with an ombre finish create a lovely and airy decorative statement for the table or shelf.

World Market also has a wide selection of terrariums, cloches, storage jars, apothecary jars, moss, and river rocks that can all be used to create a small, low maintenance indoor garden – a great way to bring a little bit of the outdoors indoors. The specialty retailer has a wide variety of imported foods and wines from some of the best winemaking regions of the world as well as the serving platters, plates, and barware for entertaining at home.

All of these items and more, including the new Spring Bliss Collection, can be viewed online at
