For someone who "hates labels" etc.... you sure name drop ALOT!

who cares who wrote the article or where they went to school?
Or is just a ploy to constantly bump your threads to the top.....

New development is always good, good for the economy and good for the city's urban centers.
Hopefully more "mom and pop" establishemnts will go in and not more Chain resturants stores etc....

nope...I support of alot of what Lakewooder posts.
But hypocritical postings bother me.

Don't cut one area as "showboating" or being a souless void filled with chain resturants etc...
Then turn around and showboat yourself etc....

It's going in at the Canine Commissary location. I didn't realize Canine Commissary was closing, but it seems duplicative with the PetSmart just a little down the road.

You know what I'd like to see around here? (Well, a Trader Joe's, but we can always dream). An REI. The location at 635 and Midway is hellish to get to and it seems like there would be a market down here for kayaks and other outdoor gear. There's the Whole Earth Provision Co. but they seem to skew a little more hippie and less pure outdoor stuff.

5stones, I was just reporting what I read! Please, calm down. If you really want to know I have very mixed feelings about Jos. A. Bank coming in where we used to have hometown clothing stores such as Northcutt's, Dad and Lad's, Chess-Lee, Colbert-Volk and James K. Wilson -- who in fact lived on Avalon in Lakewood -- I hope that's not 'name-dropping' "ALOT".

An REI would be perfect for Lakewood! It's the most outdoorsy part of Dallas. You should write them about it.

.
Where is the Petsmart you are speaking of? I can't place it.

That location for a Mens Wearhouse is interesting to me. Isn't there already a store at NW Hwy and Abrams?

It might be a Pet Supplies Plus or something. It's down by Skillman and Mockingbird, kind of near the carwash.

It is a Pet Supplies plus. I never see many people there, and after stopping in I am not surprised. I usually have to go up to Petsmart at Lovers and Greenville. I used to think of that as close, but I've been infected by the Old East Dallas mentality Now if it north of Mockingbird, I feel like it is FOREVER away.
