Demolition of the former Adams Office Furniture store has made way for construction of a new QuickTrip gas station and convenience store at the corner of Royal Lane and LBJ. Adams moved down the block and across LBJ to 10202 Royal. The family business has been around for almost 20 years, and owner Pat, wife Linda and son Jason sell new and pre-owned office furniture to home and business owners, including me and many others from Lake Highlands.

QuickTrip’s construction foreman onsite estimated 4-5 months before the store would be completed, not that most of us will be holding our breath. Seems there’s a QuickTrip, RaceTrac or somesuch going in on nearly every corner (that’s a 7-11 gas station under construction on the original Chili’s site on Greenville Avenue). In fact, based on its location and the traffic flow, the new QuickTrip is more likely to be used by suburbanites headed into Dallas than LH’ers be-bopping around town. Ah, progress.
