I get them going for the lucrative, growing northern suburbs. But from a distribution standpoint, adding a store or 2 to the south or in central Dallas would be more efficient. (And, yes, I know they’re already sending trucks up for Central Market.) They own lots of land citywide and could also acquire a dark box or two in locations they deem viable. They’ve done it before in Austin and Houston, then opened after a remodel and/or expansion. Also I’m kind of surprised how slow they are going and how long they are predicting from groundbreaking to completion — more than a year. They’re super successful, though, so clearly they are confident on their approach.
