Plaza Broadway Opening

We were invited to attend the opening of Plaza Broadway, at Centerville and Broadway in South Garland on Saturday, July 1st. We were delighted to learn that Carlos Quintanilla, the developer of the old, abandoned K Mart building, was finally ready to open for business.  When we arrived at 10 A. M. the doors were still locked and one of the merchants saw us struggling to open a door and finally let us in. Things were obviously running late, and we had scheduled 30 minutes for our visit on this very busy day, so we left without meeting with Quintanilla. There were a handful of little stores open, but the food court and majority of the commercial spaces were dark during our visit. However, that evening video was posted on Facebook showing long lines of customers being served in the food court, so we had been just a little too early to experience the opening.
