Heights Fiesta Property For Sale

I'd hate to see that property get sold and Fiesta booted... It's one of the better markets in the area (when compared to the Kroger on 11th) and it's an easy stop on the way home.

Residential would work but I fear they'd fill up the space with monstrosities

Isn't that the fiesta that is so nondescript you have to kinda know where it is to be going there? I think it could stand to use a minor facelift...at least add some windows

There were windows at one time. At least back when it was a Moore's Grocery (20 plus years ago). I assume the store was built with plently of front glass windows. The current occupants, by boarding up the windows, were only reacting to vandalism and other trends in grocery store marketing.

I'm not sure of the origins of the building. Fed Mart? Weingartens? maybe a Lucky 7? HeightsToBastrop, do you know?

:( Saw the sign up a few days ago as well.. Don't take my fiesta away! Love walking there for a few more bottles of wine after already enjoying a few bottles of wine..

Maybe mcCain's market can move in there and have an upscale coffee/sandwich shop with some specialty groceries.. Widen the isles and go basic?

Or Central Market/Whole Foods?

I suspect it will just rather stand vacant for a few years and breed rats and homeless.. townhomes would be better..

If memory serves, about 20 years ago it was a pharmacy (the name escapes me).

Well, it does have a big "Fiesta" sign painted on it. But I know what you mean. The barred doors don't really make it any more welcoming, either.

It's charmingly retro inside, and I mean that in the best possible way. It reminds me of the grocery stores my mom shopped in when I was a kid in the 70's. Plus, they're usually playing some kind of 70's music on the sound system, so that just adds to the ambience. And they even have a little Mexican steam table that sells prepared food. I can't vouch for it personally, but our tenant ate some once and didn't die.

At the risk of sounding redundant, NOOOOO! Not my quickie Fiesta! I love going to that place more than just about any other grocery store in the Heights. Their produce is always cleaner and more abundant than Kroger, and gnat free as compared to the other big Fiesta. The have a better wine selection than just about anywhere else that's close by, and I've been to Kroger many times over the years with my shopping list and when they were out of something, I'd stop at that Fiesta and they had it. And as someone else said above, they have the greatest 'overhead music'.

I guess it sounds like they will still be there for awhile, at least I hope so. I'd love to see Fiesta pump some money into this location and really jazz it up. Even staying a Fiesta, if it was changed up a little, 'freshened' and updated, I think it could really put a bigger dent in the other stores around here.

Fiesta doesn't know what potential they have in that location...
