The Retail Store Saga

This week we looked at possible retail spaces in North Dallas that would be suitable for The Provision House to be located. Some locations were good... others not so much!  The process of looking at retail space is very tiring, at least for me. However, I did learn some new commercial real estate agent lingo, such as "retail box" and "VPD." The 2S Ranch store, The Provision House, needs room for commercial grade freezers as well as display space for the unique provisions we sell online. We looked at several strip centers in the Coit Road/ Beltline Road area. We walked in the vacated Polly DuPont retail space and quickly noticed the ceiling. Yep, those sure are silver spatulas and knives stuck in the ceiling. Hmmmm... red flag.... obviously somebody was not happy with their lease arrangements. We are hoping to come to terms on a good location that is convenient for our many DFW customers. Oh, and a place that doesn't have spatulas in the ceiling!
