Elliott’s Hardware coming to Casa Linda Plaza

Casa Linda Plaza’s newest tenant is one of Dallas’s oldest mom-and-pop businesses.

Elliott’s Hardware is moving into the storefront between Chili’s and Salons by JC, says Radkey Jolink, director of marketing and communications at the leasing company, AmREIT.

The 14,593 square-foot space has been vacant for 15 years. It previously housed Parisian-Peyton’s Colberts, a women’s clothing store and one of the original tenants of the historic shopping center.

Elliott’s opened its first store in 1947 on Maple Avenue. Today, it has three locations in Dallas, Mesquite and Plano. Jolink says the store could open in Casa Linda by November.

As for what’s in store for the corner’s old Chevron station demolished last summer, nothing is confirmed just yet, he says, but soon. Very soon.

    Hardware store over saturation….

  • Wilson!

    Wow. I used to think I was just cynical in my thinking that East Dallas folks are truly not happy with anything. But now we have someone asking if three independent hardware stores in the ‘hood is too many.

    Interesting. Gecko Hardware in Lake Highlands and Ace Hardware near the spillway. Saturation?

    So glad to be getting a good family owned business in the area!

  • Wilson!

    Oh, I’m pretty sure you can buy chain at Elliott’s.

    Elliott’s is not a chain store.

    I’m going with a Chipotle at the site of the former Chevron station.

    Great news! Another win for Casa Linda Plaza.

    I don’t usually think of Casa Linda as “Lakewood.” Besides, Elliott’s is not a chain store in the bad sense.

  • Wilson!

    Oh, jeez, another chain store coming to Lakewood. Just can’t catch a break…
