The Fresh Market Comes to Dallas

Dallas-based Lincoln Property Co. has secured specialty grocer The Fresh Market for two of its Dallas properties. The first store in DFW will open in Turtle Creek Village shopping center at 3888 Oak Lawn Ave, followed closely by its second store at the soon-to-be redeveloped Arboretum Village shopping center near Gaston and Garland roads. The two stores are expected to open in late 2014 to early 2015.

The grocer chain is planning to open 10 to 20 stores in DFW in the near future. Stores are typically 20,000-22,000 sq ft. Two-thirds of their stock is typically perishable similar to a European market. The model is ideal for dense neighborhoods with clientele who are frequent shoppers, returning throughout the week.

Four stores are open in Houston and another is planned to open in 2014. The Greensboro, N.C.-based grocer operates 137 stores in 26 states.
