Re: Downtown Dallas: City Lights

So is this tom thumb express going to be separate from the Tom thumb that was planned as the tenant for the city light building?

I just don't know why they would place the express store and the actual store so close together. Why not else where in East Dallas? Over by Columbia or up on Gaston.
