South Lamar Store News

Hold on South Austin! We’re coming as fast as we can!

April 5, 2013
Today, I put the final order in for our food bar and the vent hoods for our kitchen and bakery areas! Earlier this week we made final decisions about the colors of our refrigerated display cases (silver outsides, black interiors for those of you keeping score) and secured a soda fountain from our friends at Maine Root (they’ll be selling us their locally made fountain beverages and lemonades)! These are just a few of the decisions that we’re making every day to build the best possible co-op store for ’04 and beyond.

Meet the Manager!

Bill is heading South! I am pleased to announce that Bill Bickford, our recent first-ever Store Manager at 3101 Guadalupe is also going to be our first Store Manager at 4001 S. Lamar! Bill is the perfect candidate for this position, as he will be very good at bringing the Wheatsville Way to our new store when we open this summer.

We will be hiring for a new Store Manager at Guadalupe shortly, and as soon as we have that candidate selected we'll let everybody know. I'm so delighted that Bill is willing and excited to head up our team at the South Lamar store. And he can't wait to see you down there!

Congratulations, Bill!
- Dan, Wheatsville GM


Thanks Dan!  I couldn’t be more pleased to be chosen to open the new South location.  Opening a brand new store from scratch is both a daunting challenge that I look forward to meeting and an exciting opportunity to play an historic role in Wheatsville’s continuing growth and success.  There’s a LOT to do between now and July, but I am very much looking forward to taking Wheatsville’s culture and values South, where they can be appreciated by even more of this great city’s residents.  Keep checking back for more news as things come together!
