I love the ones downtown but they have a lot more people constantly passing in and out of the store than I think this site would.

We need a Sprouts or Central Market grocery store. The Tom Thumb on Hampton is not good. I can't understand why the Sprouts at El Fenix or the CM on Beckley/Davis isn't being built. If someone surveyed the area every person would say we need a quality grocery store.

Seeing as how we now have the first development deal in town related to opportunity zones (a self-storage center in West Dallas) I don't see what could be holding this up.

I'm also wondering how long the owner of that old dingy apartment complex on Bishop and 10th will hold out?
