DALLAS — Two additions to the Dallas business landscape are in the construction or remodeling phase, and a third in is negotiations with the city.
“You’ve probably seen the big hole in the ground at Uglow and East Ellendale,” said Jason Locke, Dallas community development director at the Dallas City Council subcommittee meeting on Sept. 25. “That is the future site of the Jiffy Lube.”
The car service center is slated to open in January, Jennifer Friedmann, Jiffy Lube spokeswoman, said in an email.
“The four-bay store will offer oil change services in addition to brakes, tires and other preventive maintenance services,” she said.
Vince Edwards owns the new franchise and has operated Jiffy Lube centers in Salem and Portland for the last 36 years. He has been in the process of building the new store for about a year, Friedmann said.
He will be hiring for his Dallas and Salem stores, she added.
Locke said local chain Love Love Teriyaki is opening a restaurant in the former Arctic Circle Building on Main Street. Love Love Teriyaki has locations in Salem and Albany.
“The former Arctic Circle building is being rehabbed on the inside,” Locke said. “All of it, basically, is being torn out and redone.”
He said a third possible development, Grocery Outlet, is in talks with the city to open a location in Jasper Crossing, near Rite Aid on West Ellendale.
“We had a pre-application meeting with Grocery Outlet. It looks like that will move forward,” Locke said. “We’re working with them and have been for a couple months.”
