6-26-2018: Wild About Harry’s Staying in Knox District

Dallasites were in dismay when word that local custard hot spot, Wild About Harry’s, was being forced to vacate its 22-year old storefront.

Just in time for Fourth of July (and Nat’l Hot Dog and Nat’l Ice Cream Month), Wild About Harry’s will reopen its doors in a new location with a new landlord, thanks to The Retail Connection – a Dallas-based full-service brokerage, advisory, and investment firm.

The Retail Connection, which recently acquired a substantial portion of the Knox District through a partnership with MSD Capital, felt strongly that the beloved hot dog and custard shop must go on, and provided a temporary space on Travis Street.

The new and improved Wild About Harry’s will open at 4527 Travis Street, just mere blocks from its original location, and is scheduled to open on July 1st.

“When The Retail Connection told us that the Travis location was available, as Harry would have said: ‘It was a no brainer’,” said Sydney Coley-Berglund, daughter of Wild About Harry’s founder Harry Coley. “We have been blessed with so much support from our customers and neighborhood friends. Come join us at our new location, with plenty of parking and the same family friendly atmosphere that Harry always loved.”
