Frank Bullock: Dallas Movie Theaters, Then and Now

Gravity, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock (no relation to me), recently made its debut and grossed more than $56 million. The record-breaking opening prompted me to recall a few of the Dallas theaters of yesteryear and how the industry, as well as the use of the real estate in some instances, has changed over the years.

Frank Bullock: The Evolution of Retail on Greenville Avenue

In a recent conversation with my comrade and friendly competitor, Jack Gosnell at UCR, we talked about how interesting it is to see concepts change, restaurants evolve, and players come and go; yet good real estate only gets better.

Frank Bullock: Holiday Retail Sales Up 3.3 Percent

It should come as no surprise that the 2011 holiday season was a very successful one for many DFW retailers. All one had to do was go shopping and experience the mayhem of traffic, packed parking lots, and people with packages in their arms.

Frank Bullock: The Power of the People

On a recent trip to Jackson, Miss., I pulled into a McDade's grocery-anchored center that was a total throwback to those I frequented as a child in the 1960s while shopping with my mother. In fact this particular center, because of its design, was featured in the recent hit movie, “The Help,” with several scenes being shot there.
