Somebody reported on Nextdoor that the Elrod’s grocery store will close on 2/24/24.

The Sprouts grocery store taking its place was reported to be opening in Spring 2025 by someone on Nextdoor, but I remember hearing end of 2024.

Crown Buffet also closed a couple weeks ago. Demolition should begin soon.

Beloved Dallas Irish pub Old Monk to open spinoff location in Oak Cliff
"It will simply be called Old Monk Oak Cliff and we intend to have the same menu as Monk and build the space out and decorate as closely as we can to the Henderson pub," McKinney says.

"More importantly than the appearance, I hope to create a neighborhood pub that is in keeping with the neighborhood it is in and can be around for decades," he says.

Kome Sushi, an offshoot of a highly reviewed sushi restaurant in North Dallas, is opening in the Bishop Arts space formerly occupied by Australian cafe Isla & Co.

Website: https://komedallas.com/

It's disappointing to see Isla close, but I'm not too surprised. When I went, it was good but nothing spectacular or super unique, and the prices were high for what was served.

Can't wait to have another Oak Cliff sushi option. Hopefully they are open for lunch, as the only other OC sushi spot is only open for dinner (Zen). Would love to see more sushi places open in other parts of OC too..... it's underserved.

Sweet Rice, a local Lao/Thai mini-chain, is opening a location on Davis Street in Bishop Arts. They're opening in the TyPo building in the space formerly occupied by Encanto Pops.

2 Asian restaurant announcements in OC in one week is very welcome news!

Someone on Facebook said this was demolished for a Methodist expansion (while others cried about it being more apartments, as if others shouldn’t have a place to live as long as they have a place to live).

Does anyone know if all the vacant land to the northeast of Methodist is also for hospital expansion? Looks like 4 huge blocks of land have been cleared of houses over the years and left empty.

There is one house left someone is living in on the corner of those blocks. I also assumed apartments but there is a Methodist parking lot on that side too so maybe it will be for expansion.

Great downtown views though if they build apartments.

I catch the 109 bus here all the time.

All of the Methodist lots over here empty all the time (not exaggerating either) there's one building that they own nearby with some workers using parking (like max 5 cars)...it's almost completely a ghost town across all the buildings and parking lots they own along Beckley.

Not sure what they intend to do if it's an expansion...

My guess is the owner of the land cleared the strip mall just to prep the sell and lower his tax bill. But idk ...

It's too bad they're such terrible stewards of the surrounding property under their control. Wouldn't this be a prime location for a hotel like the Home2 Suites on Gaston? I know it's not nice, but it would serve the hospital as well as tourists visiting Bishop.

The lack of any hotels (not counting the shady motels on Ft. Worth Ave.) in this area is a bit surprising. I miss the Belmont.

There are hotels, they're small boutiques hotels and airbnbs -- not chains. In fact there's a hotel being reborn right behind this strip mall.
