El Paso is growing and so are our local malls!

The Shoppes at Solana, formerly known as Sunland Park Mall, is welcoming a new store to their growing mall and it promises to bring a world of cuteness and charm for Hello Kitty lovers of all ages!

Sanrio, The Japanese entertainment powerhouse behind the beloved Hello Kitty character, is set to enchant shoppers with its selection of adorable merchandise because it will be opening a Hello Kitty store inside the Shoppes at Solana.

In the past, the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck has made pop-up appearances at Cielo Vista mall, but this new Hello Kitty store will be a permanent spot at the Shoppes at Solana.

From adorable stationery to trendy accessories, Hello Kitty enthusiasts will find everything they need to add a touch of kawaii to their lives.

Whether you're looking for the perfect gift or simply want to indulge in some retail therapy, the Hello Kitty store is sure to capture your heart…. And maybe even your wallet. But hey, when you love something so much, money doesn’t matter!

This will be the first Hello Kitty store in El Paso and I did some investigative research to see if this would be the first Hello Kitty store in Texas and according to their website, it is!

Hello Kitty merchandise is sold in many stores like Target, LunchBox, and Walmart, to name a few, but a stand-alone store with only Hello Kitty merchandise can only be found in California and Hawaii, according to their website’s store locator. 

Whether you're a longtime fan or new to the world of Sanrio, the Hello Kitty store at The Shoppes at Solana is sure to be a destination worth visiting.

No word yet on when the store will be opening its doors, but It’s safe to say that local Hello Kitty fans will be marking their calendars so they won’t miss out on the chance to immerse in the world of Hello Kitty and indulge in a shopping experience that's as delightful as it is charming.
