Comment of the Day: A Closer Grocery Quarters on Westheimer

COMMENT OF THE DAY: A CLOSER GROCERY QUARTERS ON WESTHEIMER “Four grocery stores in the same mile of West Alabama is a pretty good selection. Reminds me of the Westheimer Supermarket Battle Royale near the Westchase area, where Fiesta, Phoenicia, HEB, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Target, and Whole Foods are vying for your food dollars in a 2-mile stretch.” [slugline, commenting on The Great W.

  • Phoenicia Market is not a “grocery store”. It is the site of pilgrimages, a cultural centre, a destination. Locally, it is sui generis.

  • We are similarly over-grocered in Briargrove. Within one mile, we have H-E-B, Rice, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Kroger. And Randall’s is just down San Felipe (at Sage).

  • Its awesome the amount of options we have in Montrose. This permits the inner city dweller to get their necessities quickly. Its one of the reasons we stay in the city limits!
