  1. After the recent closures, some good news to report: Hanaroo is now up and running in their new Center Street location.
  2. Gateway Towne Center: I-30 & I-430

    H&M has begun its hiring process for the Outlets of Little Rock store, with a projected opening sometime within winter of 2018 (as currently posted in the store windows). Quite a few other stores around the shopping center are seeking additional staff, too. But WestPointe Home seems to be on its way out.
  3. It had to have been sudden even to some of the administrative staff at Dixie's main office. One could see through a window last week that Christmas decorations were up on the walls.
  4. Riverdale area

    I wondered about the tenant end of the equation, too. The grocery store isn't the only vacancy in the shopping center; the former cell phone store between Whole Hog's banquet room and the movie theater has been empty for around two years (and lately is cluttered with junk inside). Some quick Googling shows the leasing contact for that space is with PBA Realty, based just up the road on Cottondale Lane. I'd assume that PBA manages the whole center, but maybe not.

    I sincerely hope it's that same Casey's BBQ, which always had some of the best smoked chicken on their menu. Their property on Reservoir was only part of what was razed to make way for Walgreens. A former TCBY-turned-tobacco shop, an Exxon gas station/convenience store combo, and a Captain D's (fronting Rodney Parham) were all knocked out along with the Casey's building.
  6. Riverdale area

    Dollar Tree has reopened, and has done brisk business so far, as some of my neighbors have observed. Latest word on the Walmart site is that Hays Supermarkets, with locations in northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri, may be interested in entering Little Rock.
  7. According to Eric Harrison at the ADG, Hanaroo is now slated to move to Three Fold's old spot on Center Street. Possibly by the end of November.

    I seem to remember back in the early days of Home Bancshares, when the second-generation Twin City Bank still existed as a brand, there were plans to build at least a two-story TCB main location on that site (perhaps with some extra leasable offices included). Can't imagine that Home Bancshares has anything resembling that plan now, but stranger things have been known to happen.
  9. Beer Time

    Looks as if that space will be used now for some sort of law practice.
  10. Riverdale area

    Even if somehow it manages to be a more budget-minded Whole Foods 365 (as opposed to the flagship chain), it would be welcome. (For that matter, I think I'd just as soon have Aldi as Trader Joe's, and Aldi has announced major expansion plans to become competitive with both Walmart and Kroger.) I do wonder if the gas pumps out front from the Riverdale store are somehow inextricable from the store's lease and weighing down potential new tenants. Remember that it took some time before Walmart finally followed up Harvest Foods.

    It lasted a little over 5 years. Next?
  12. Gateway Towne Center: I-30 & I-430

    After the ill-received inclusion of Cajun's Wharf into the Landry's chain in the '90s, I doubt Landry's is in a rush to return to central Arkansas. Even if it's now been nearly 20 years since that all went down.

    Empty unless it somehow gets converted (after its already announced closure) to a Stage location. Though Little Rock would be the biggest Arkansas market by far for the chain, if it happened. As it stands, the largest city in the state with with one of Stage's 23 Arkansas stores is Pine Bluff.

    And now, the project has the greenlight from the city council, as reported by the ADG's Jake Sandlin.
  15. Or, as an alternative, maybe they could take the former TJ Raney & Sons building in Riverdale, if it would have enough room for their employees. The existing bank in the neighborhood could also take the old Regions space that was vacated in November. I look for BOZ to remain out west for a long time to come.
