Dry cleaners: There's not much demand. Not many people in this neighborhood wear suits. Glo had a location on Commerce by Exposition Park, but it closed due to lack of business. There's a cleaners on Live Oak by the LCC.
Nails: Lots of them already. Googling "nail salon near me" shows nine in the neighborhood.
Salons: Hell, there's practically a hair place on every block. We even have own barber college. "hair salon near me" returns 14. "barber near me" returns 5.
Fitness Club: CrossFit, East Side Athletic Club, Yoga, MMA (two of them), Aikido and the Baylor Tom Landry Center just across the tracks. And don't forget Club Dallas on Swiss if that's the way you lean...
Bodega: Nobody can compete with 7-Eleven. Second location under construction.
Sub Shop: Uncle Uber's, baby. Subway and Which Wich couldn't compete. And there was that place by the DART station. Jimmy John's, maybe? Come on, do you really think Deep Ellum lacks for places to eat?
Urgent Care: Have you noticed that big building with the "BAYLOR" sign? We have our own Level 1 Trauma Center.
