WinCo Foods to add 400 jobs with DFW supermarkets
They are employee-owned out of Idaho and beat Wal-Mart on some pricing. They're expanding from western states to Texas, to DFW first, naturally.

Sprinkles Ice Cream
Sprinkles Ice Cream is just the third location behind two in California. Welcome to Texas, and to DFW, first.

"For us, we always think of coming here (to Dallas) first, outside of California," Nelson said. "What's interesting is, when we started shipping ice cream, more pints were going to Texas, and specifically Dallas, than anywhere else," she said. "We love a sophisticated food base."

Nebraska Furniture Mart
The massive (showroom is 2X the size of Ikea) Nebraska Furniture Mart is under construction in The Colony. It's expected to attract 8-10 million shoppers annually. Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway owns 80% of the company. He fully expects The Colony store "will almost certainly” be the highest-volume home furnishing store in the U.S. Welcome to Texas, and to DFW first.

What do In-N-Out Burger, Aldi, Trader Joe's, WinCo, Sprinkles Ice Cream, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Pinkberry, Nobu, H&M, Nordstrom, Nike Store, American Girl, The Container Store, W Hotel and The Ritz-Carlton have in common? When it was time to enter Texas, they came to DFW first. Some in my list are exclusive to Dallas in the state.

When nationally known, successful retailers, restaurateurs and hoteliers start crunching the numbers and the demographics for a move to the Texas market, they come to DFW first, by far.

I hear (rumor?) that an HEB grocery store is coming to the space that use to be Whole Foods at Coit & Beltline.

I heard that is going to be a super Walmart, not HEB.
There are signs in that neighborhood on lawns to sign a petition against it.

100% agree with your thesis - and it applies to luxury retailers like Christian Louboutin, DVF, Oscar de la Renta, etc who also chose Dallas as the 1st (or only) entry point to Texas and the Southwest.

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.

The signs in the neighborhood are to protest the urban (less than 90,000 square feet) WalMart that will be built on the northwest corner of Arapaho and Coit. The neighborhood has not been informed what will fill the Whole Foods space. The last I heard from Richardson officials was merely that they were working aggressively with the landlord to fill it.

There were rumors that the Kroger at Coit and Beltline opposite the old Whole Foods would be getting a significant upgrade. I would be extremely surprised, but happily so, if HEB chose that for a first location Dallas/Dallas suburbs.

I will gladly make the trek for groceries.

I realized the error after I had posted, then wondered if anyone would catch it. We have some sharp people around here!

Speaking of the Container Store, we already know that it's been on Fortune's list of best places to work for fourteen years in a row.

Play fair ladies!

That Nebraska Furniture Mart won't ever be going anywhere other than where it is at because it is a regional attraction needing a very large market around it. Think more of that and everything built up around it as serving as a massive theme park.
