Customers scan the Amazon Go app on their smartphone as they enter the store. The company spent four years developing "just walk out" technology, which detects when items are picked up or returned to shelves and "keeps track of them in a virtual cart," Amazon said. There's no checkout line — just leave the store with your groceries, and Amazon will charge your account.

Dallas District 3 City Councilman Casey Thomas posted on his Facebook page recently that the Summit Parc area in his southwest Dallas district "will get the first Lidl grocery store in Texas." He talked about it at a community meeting earlier this week.

I agree that it's strategic at this point, but one thing I kept hearing was that both Zang/Davis and Colorado Place (Fort Worth Ave) were being considered by CM, so what's stopping a competitor from taking the other location, especially now that CM has staked a claim for itself in Oak Cliff?
Another name that keeps popping us is Sprouts having an interest in Colorado and Beckley, where El Fenix is currently. I don't see that as an easy transaction and hope they just take the Colorado Place site.

Sounds like the landowner is having trouble coming to an agreement with CM on the best use for that site.
The land under the Uptown store that Central Market purchased is owned by a limited partnership that also owns the land under the Walgreens across the street. The properties are managed by a Florida company that didn’t return a request for comment. However, Butt addressed the process.
“Though very early in the development phase, Central Market is exploring options with our landlord for the best use of this choice location,” Butt said. “We are taking time to design a Central Market that will showcase a fantastic customer experience.”
Butt called the Uptown location “a rare opportunity to combine a great shopping experience like Central Market with such a powerful retail location.” He said the company is committed to the Uptown location “bringing the most exciting food journey” to Dallas, but it’s going to take more time.

So how does that work? Did CM buy the property or a portion of the property? How do they have a landlord?
