Things are getting cooler in town.
As the (debatably) most beloved cooler company in Houston, with a citywide-spread cult fan base repping the YETI emblem on everything from coolers to ramblers and coffee cups, it’s been a long time coming for YETI Coolers LLC to open up shop in town. Better late than never as they say, for the company has just opened its first brick and mortar in Highland Village.
The Austin-based company opened its first store in the state capital back in 2017. Its 3,400-square-foot outpost in Highland Village in Houston, opened this past November, marks its eighth standalone shop regionally.
“Hey Houston, we’ve got a new spot and our doors are open just in time for the holidays,” the company writes on its website. “Feel free to stop by and shop your favorite YETI Gear, watch our famous YETI presents films, get your cooler customized or repaired, see ambassador gear recommends, and just have a good time.”
As with its other brick and mortars, YETI’s Houston outpost features a YETI Garage, that is, a chill sort of Build-A-Bear where patrons can customize their YETI coolers with a selection of various ropes, badges, latches, replacement parts, and accessories.
Additionally, the store located at 4048 Westheimer formerly occupied by a Tommy Bahama store, offers a full range of its products, that which include: Hard and Soft Coolers, Ramblers, backpacks, outdoor equipment, and more.
The standalone features a prominent flourish of Redfish, either painted on its walls or suspended from the ceilings, in an homage to the Gulf of Mexico area.
Unfortunately, the Houston location does not include a bar and stage like its flagship back in Austin.
YETI at 4048 Westheimer in Highland Village is now open to the public. Its open from 10 am to 9 pm on Mondays through Fridays, until 7 pm on Saturdays, and from noon to 5 pm on Sundays.
