Quietly tucked away in its comfortable niche since the early thirties, Preston Center has continued to thrive while the surrounding neighborhoods-and the city-have grown up around it. The center was far north when the rest of Dallas was clustered south. When the northern growth took off. Preston Center was right in the heart of it. However, being in the right place at the right time doesn’t necessarily guarantee continued success. Preston Center has managed to change with the times without relinquishing its identity as a neighborhood shopping center. Its biggest drawing cards remain; location., with easy access from both the tollroad and Central Expressway; its mixed use of retail, services, restaurants and doctors offices; and the ample, close-in parking.

On the following pages you’ll find a guide to Preston Center, with information on the stores and businesses located in this verv diverse area.

Mahoney Realtors ? Serious buyers in the Park Cities are becoming more prevalent this spring according to Dan Mahoney with Mahoney Realtors. “For the first time in over two years we appear to be in a sustained period of very high activity. In the recent past we have experienced brief surges of activity and sales only to fall back into inactivity. Now it seems to be lasting and has continued through the fail of last year into the first quarter of 1988, ” said Mahoney. “It is too soon to predict overall price increases which normally follow high demand. We have, however, seen many isolated cases of definite increases in some locations and some types of homes. “
