Fashion Show Adding 15 New Tenants

LAS VEGAS -- There are signs the retail economy is starting to rebound in Las Vegas. The Fashion Show on the Las Vegas Strip announced Monday that it will add 15 new tenants before the end of the year.

The mall's business is made up of 70 percent tourists and 30 percent locals. It offers more than 200 stores and restaurants. One of the newest tenants, the Red Velvet Cafe, is a local restaurant that dishes out healthy fare.

"Giving you the choices of being vegan or vegetarian or non-vegetarian," said Sunil Tolani, owner of the Red Velvet Cafe.

The cafe has been doing a brisk business since it opened on W. Sahara Ave three years ago. Tolani' wife, Aneesha, is the chef. She is also a born and raised Las Vegan.

"We started to see so many little kids who are born with egg allergies, dairy allergies, nut allergies, meat allergies and I've seen it all and I want it to become a place where they can come and feel safe to eat anything they want," said Aneesha Tolani, chef.

They're one of 15 new businesses coming to the Fashion Show mall. Other popular retailers includes Tiffany and Company, the Mexican Chipotle Grill, UK fashion designer Superdry, Pinto Ranch western wear, True Religion Kids and many more. Mall managers say business is doing great.

"We have seen double-digit increases in traffic," said Laurie Paquette, Fashion Show. She says  several factors have helped bring more customers into the stores.

"We have seen the increase in numbers in tourism, we have seen the convention business increase, which is also a great indicator for us as well," she said.

The Tolani's say they will offer the first organic and vegan cafe on the Las Vegas Strip, which has been a long time dream.

"The city is changing and growing and we're happy to be a part of it," said Aneesha Tolani.

Their cafe should be open by the end of the week. In addition to the 15 new businesses, Fashion Show managers say they're also negotiating with eight more companies that will make the mall 99 percent occupied.
