If there is one thing that Haidar Barbouti is good at, it is providing a great shopping experience for customers. One approach that Barbouti took in making sure that the shopping experience was unmatched was that he made sure that there was nothing “cookie-cutter” about the shopping center. He not only made sure that it was unique center for retail, but also made it so anyone could reach it. It is also maintained in order to keep a high end appeal to it. After all, not very many people love to shop at a run down area.
Another factor that makes Highland Village such a great place to shop is Barbouti’s focus on his own shopping center. As a matter of fact, he never really paid any thought to what any neighboring center was doing. He focused completely on what he wanted to do for his own shopping center. As a matter of fact, he focused on “reinventing the wheel” whenever someone new came in to open up shop.
Haidar Barbouti has expressed his passion about making sure that no two shops or businesses are the same. He wants to make sure each tenant express his or her own individuality. He also is passionate about keeping a balance as it comes to the center. He doesn’t want to overdo the work put into the property and destroy the soul. He also is not interested in keeping it historic and removing its ability to evolve.
One thing that adds to the appeal of Highland Village is that it has buildings from different time periods. This gives it a certain allure that many people respond to. Barbouti has provided a lot of benefit towards the shopping center that he has owned for more than 20 years. It is safe to say that he will be providing a lot more innovations for times to come.
