The stores are respectively in Desoto, Ft Worth, FlowerMound, and Coppell. If I'm seeing the map correctly, the only Albertsons stores left in the Dallas side are in Dallas proper.

The closing Tom Thumbs are relatively close to one another geographically. After they close, the majority of Tom Thumbs will be in Dallas proper, though there are still a few north of G Bush.

I happened to be in the one on South Carrier in GP recently and it is undergoing a major upgrade so that one must be doing well.

Walmart is considering a re-imagining of some of its stores, and the big parking lots that spread out in front of them, into 'town centers'. The concept may include various amenities, such as outdoor areas, spots for food trucks, workout/fitness, and "entertainment". There are 2 locations here that are part of the possible repurposing:
* Garland, I-30/Broadway-Belt Line
* Lewisville, Bus.TX 121/Round Grove

A link in the DMN article leads to a special Walmart website (https://www.walmartreimagined.com/) introducing the concept, but the DMN didn't say the site needs a password first.

Reminds me of when Apple tried to start calling their stores "town squares". FFS, it's just an expansion of their leasable square footage dressed up to look more urban, which is fine, but people in Garland and Lewisville still want ample and convenient parking.

Lidl, a German grocery chain (similar to Aldi, a competitor, but has larger stores) that has spread from Europe to the U.S. east coast, has long been rumored to be buying lots in north TX for future stores. Now, the announcement of a new retail/restaurant center in north Fort Worth at N. Blue Mound/Basswood, includes word that the center's grocery anchor will be a Lidl store. No disclosure was given as to when the store would open.

Construction fence has gone up around the old Sam's Club on Shady Brook/Park Lane/Greenville Ave... Costco on the way.

Don’t get too excited - word on the street is the store will be a “Costco Business Center” which means no gas, booze, free samples, electronics, etc.

Lame. I thought this Costco would at least help reinvigorate this blighted area's attractiveness to new residential development, but it's going to be a glorified distribution warehouse for small businesses.
