Comings and Goings


Royal Blue Grocery

Highland Park Village

The neighborhood grocery and specialty food shop is closing its Highland Park Village location after June 27 but hoping to open a new store nearby. (See below for what will fill that location in The Village).

Royal Blue’s downtown Dallas stores — in Trammel Crow Center and The Mercantile — expect to rebrand to Berkley’s Market on July 1. A Berkley’s Market will open in Oak Cliff at 634 W Davis this summer.
