Buff City Soap Prepares For The Opening Of The First Fort Worth Area Store
After Buff City Soap moved its headquarters from Memphis to Dallas last year, it is cleaning up North Texas, opening several new stores in the area, including the first in Tarrant County.
The brand, known for its herbal soaps and body products that customers can watch being made in-store, is opening its doors at South Lake, at 1431 E. Southlake Blvd., in the shops of Southlake (across from the central market) on Thursday, November 11.
Local residents Dorvin and Leigh Ellen Lively, along with their daughter Lindsey, own and operate the store.
“We are thrilled to bring handcrafted herbal soap daily to the residents of Southlake,” said Lindsey, who is a longtime fan herself.
Their inaugural offer is pretty good: The first 50 people to visit the new Southlake store at a special VIP event each day – 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. November 11 to 13 and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on November 14 – will receive free soap for one year.
Additionally, an inaugural event will take place from January 7-9, 2022, where customers will have their second chance to win – this time it’s free laundry soap for one year. (Mark your calendars and get this free stuff, folks – the stuff doesn’t come cheap!)
Normal store hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday to Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Even before the Southlake store opens, a new Buff City will debut in the northern Dallas suburbs of Prosper on November 4. Stores are also planned for Mansfield and Denton, with no opening date yet set, a spokesperson said.
They will join existing local stores in Allen, McKinney, Celina, Highland Village and Park Cities.
Buff city soap was founded in 2013 as a high quality alternative to commercial soaps full of sulfates, harsh chemicals, detergents and animal fats. They allow customers to watch the soap-making process live, in-store, and are transparent about their ingredients and process.
Each store offers over 30 customizable scents in a variety of artisanal products – bar soap, bath bombs, foaming hand soap, and laundry soap – with fun names like “Ferocious Beast,” “Good Morning Sunshine” and ” Narcissist ”. Prices range from around $ 7 for a bar of soap or foamer bottle to $ 18 for laundry detergent.
