001aThe Tom Thumb grocery store at LBJ and Skillman will undergo major remodeling beginning first thing Monday. The transformation should be completed by the end of July and will bring a sit-down Starbucks to the store.

“It’s going to change the appearance big-time,” said Tyla Caldwell, the store’s Assistant Manager. “We’re all very excited about it.

“We know that many of our good customers are shopping elsewhere, especially on weekends, and we understand. If you’re paying the same money for groceries, you might as well have an enjoyable shopping experience.”

For now, multiple large green storage pods can be seen in the parking lot.

“It’s going to be very nice. We’re moving some things – like the cash office – to make them more convenient. Our customers are going to love it.”
