WalMart Lowest Greenville employees busted for embezzling pre-paid credit cards

When word first started coming out last year that WalMart was moving into the old Whole Foods, the first thing BD did was to pull up the crime reports for their (similar) Neighborhood Market on Central @ Hall Streets.

It was no shock to see this location getting at least one hit per day average by the Dallas Police Department for everything from shoplifting to burglary of motor vehicles since the day it opened. They have an off-duty officer working at the store most evenings, based on the sign-in's BD hears on the DPD scanner. So it's no surprise to see that our new neighbor has had it's share of crime in the few months it's been open - two attempts at passing forged currency, to be exact. One attempt to cite BD for trespassing, check.

And the walls came tumbling down...

The much-anticipated first step in the construction process for Trader Joe's Lowest Greenville started at 8:35 am this Thursday morning, when demolition started on the old Encore nightclub on Sears Street. This opens up space for customer parking behind the store, slated to be built on the former Arcadia Theatre space on Greenville Avenue.

According to old criss-cross directories, the building was a transmission repair facility. It was the only building with its own attached loading dock. The demolition confirmed the super-thick walls, with a strength you could almost feel standing inside and can see in this photo.
