You Want Dim Sum of This? Plano's About to Get Texas's First 99 Ranch Market.
Far as I can tell, there are no 99 Ranch Market groceries in Texas -- most are way out west, in California, Washington and Nevada (with the stray site in Atlanta). To the relatively short list, add Plano: GlobeSt.com reports this morning that the 25-year-old Asian grocery store chain will take over 60,000-plus square feet at Spring Creek Parkway and N. Central Expressway -- site of a former Albertson's, matter of fact, acquired two years ago by Centennial Real Estate Co. LLC and Westmount Realty Capital LLC during The Great Grocery Site Sell-Off of '07.
No word on when the store will open, and there are 45,000 square feet in the shopping center left to develop -- should be easier with a new anchor, sure. And, yes, seems that people do love this place; like, really love it. Mmmm, bakery: "Fast and convenient for these modern days." Wonder how Asia World Market, Saigon Taiepei and H-Mart feel about this.
