Nice News for Lower Greenville Residents
OMG I freaking LOVE Jimmy John's! I totes was hungry at 11p.m. the other night and you better believe I order me up a #4 and inhaled it on the drive home (I live 6 minutes from JJ's but I was on a mission...okaaaaay). I am thrilled to hear that a Jimmy John's franchisee has just leased the space on Lower Greenville between Richmond and Prospect. YES!
And now, in case The Pearl Cup, Louie's, and Barcadia wasn't enough awesomeness for the corner of Henderson and McMillan, seems we're getting some more greatness soon. Read below some exciting news from the Advocate's Lakewood blog.
Two new businesses are planning to open in the small shopping center at Henderson and McMillan, adjacent to the Pearl Cup.
We Are 1976, a gift boutique specializing in handmade items, is expected to open in three or four weeks. Vynsie Law of Hollywood Heights is opening the boutique with her brother, Derek Law, and her former sister-in-law, Jully Law.
The store will sell one-of-a-kind items from Dallas designers and artists, as well as from creatives around the world. There are Japanese toy designers and English crafters, Vynsie Law says, and she wants to create a gallery space just for Dallas-based producers of handmade stuff. "We love Dallas, and we just want to showcase some of the talent here," she says.
The other new business, Couture Confections, is a specialty bakery that's set to open nextdoor to We Are 1976. I don't have many details on that yet, but I will be sure to clue you in as soon as I know more.
Can't wait for what's to come.
