Tom Thumb Adapts its Suburban Big Box With Amenities for Urban Dwellers

The new Tom Thumb in Uptown Dallas is not your typical suburban meat-and-potatoes supermarket, but it’s as big as one.

Located on the ground floor of the new $350 million Union high-rise complex at 2380 N. Field St. across from the Perot Museum and Victory Park, the store is trying to be a one-stop shop for the more than 10,000 people living downtown.

It’s built for urban dwellers who want the convenience of take-home meals and prefer specialty foods, but also eat Cheerios for breakfast and prefer Bounty paper towels for spills. Its main downtown competitor, Whole Foods Market, still largely caters to specialty shoppers.
