‘Coming soon’ — business growth in area communities
As 2013 goes out with a bang, 2014 is shaping up to be a year of continued growth in the Wilson County News coverage area.
Taco Bell and Domino’s Pizza will join the La Vernia business community, according to information released by the La Vernia Municipal Development District on Twitter. The two franchises will open in the La Vernia Crossing retail center, offering more dining options to folks in and around La Vernia.
Coming soon to Floresville are Dollar Tree and Cato. They will be located in the suite formerly occupied by Walmart on U.S. 181, joining Anytime Fitness as it expands.
A Holiday Inn Express next to H-E-B on U.S. 181 in Floresville also is now accepting guests.
“Coming soon” is often associated with new movie releases. And coming soon to the Arcadia Theatre in Floresville will be new screens, to allow the theater to screen films in digital format. This is an exciting development for the theater, an entertainment mecca in Floresville for decades.
