We heard Lincoln Properties was bringing in HEB to its huge redevelopment near the spillway at White Rock Lake (Gaston and East Grand/Garland Road), but it turned out to be this:

I liked the Fresh Markets in Miami, though FM is going up against stiff competition here with both Central Market and Trader Joe's, neither of which were in South Florida.

The Fresh Market can find its niche. It's premium, but the experience feels SO much more relaxed than in a Whole Foods or Central Market, which can get frantic at times! I think it's a perfect fit for that particular area! Plus, <nerd alert!> I'm a sucker for classical music softly playing while I shop.

When I was meeting with a broker at the International Council of Shopping Centers event in Vegas last year, we were told that HEB is definitely moving into the area, but it was going to be a slow, controlled growth. And that it would grow north from the Hill Country into outer lying areas. Think Burleson and Granbury. I highly doubt they'd skip to go up to Frisco. Although I wouldn't be surprised if they did a Central Market up there.

As far as empty Walmarts, they do have a separate real estate department that works to sell those buildings. Specifically for a Neighborhood Walmart, their contracts specifically prohibit another discount type company (Meijers, KMart) or grocery stores. IF the space is less than 35,000 sf. If it's over 35,000 sf that removes that prohibition.

One correction to your post: Kip Tindell started the Container Store in north Dallas in the 1970's and the company is still headquartered here in Coppell. So of course he chose Dallas first (he lived here!), not by strategic expansion like the others on your list.
Although there is currently not a store, Christian Louboutin first came to Houston in the late 70s and was there throughout the 80s. Ritz Carlton first bought Caroline Rose' Hunt's hotel property in River Oaks in the 80s and sold it years later to St. Regis.

Both Dallas and Houston markets are entry markets in the South and Southwest.

Christian Louboutin founded his namesake shoe brand in 1991 and opened his first US boutique in 1993 - in Manhattan. I'm not sure what Houston store you could possibly be referring to in the 1970-1980's....

The Fresh Market has a number of locations in the Chicago area, and I also miss it very much. I'd be thrilled if it made its way down to DFW!

Funny/weird thing - I used to shop at Central Market at least once a month when I lived a ways away from them. Now that I live within a mile of one, I've gone only once in the last 5 months. Go figure.
