The signage above Fallas’ storefront — pictured above — has already come down, reports an employee of a neighboring business. Now on its way to that 25,480-sq.-ft. space in the chamfered corner of the L-shaped Northtown Plaza shopping center: Dallas supermarket El Rancho. A building permit was filed yesterday for the grocery conversion. It’s the second location that the North Texas chain has in the works for Houston; a Greenspoint location 6 miles up I-45 is planned to open in June.
But Fallas’ discount clothing presence won’t be entirely displaced by the new supermarket:
Its 28,700-sq.-ft. kid’s section will stick around just west of the planned El Rancho, bookending the supermarket along with the China Border on its opposite side.
