This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet

Willow Bend Market in Plano has a new look following a large-scale renovation that improved the appearance and amenities of the 175K SF center.

Upgrades included new signs, lighting, landscaping and other improvements, according to the Dallas Morning News. The center's anchor, Tom Thumb, also underwent a renovation that impacted all areas of the store's layout, departments and merchandising, according to a news release.
