Many of you have
complained commented to us about your favorite store. Why aren’t they coming to Lubbock, when are they opening, why don’t we get any “cool” stores here? We’ve compiled a list of companies that you’ve Facebook messaged, tweeted, and Instagram-commented us that you wish would build in Lubbock. Please add any store or business that we left out that you’d like to see!
Also, along with the list be sure to check out the links to each company’s “Contact Us” form so YOU can tell them what you want!
Keep in mind, several companies have a population requirement to build. Lubbock’s current pop is hovering right around 240,000 (2013).
Another note – let’s not forget to support our local businesses. It’s easy to get caught up in what’s shiny and new, but it’s so important to support those family-run and independent businesses.

This supermarket chain is based out of San Antonio with stores all across Texas and even Mexico. Word has been buzzing that they purchased land on 114th and Quaker. They are staying mum as of this publishing, but keep up-to-date right here on Lubbock in the Loop.
Macy’s tortures us with ads on our televisions even though you can’t find this huge department store in a 100 mile radius of town. What gives?
This restaurant is based in Houston with locations all over Texas…. except Lubbock. One of our LITLites emailed us back in July to tell us they spoke with a manager at a Dallas Saltgrass who said they were picking out a spot in Lubbock and planning to build within the year. Of course, now we all wait with bated breath….
Not only does this restaurant offer delicious varieties of cheesecake, but their extensive menu has tons of great options. Wouldn’t it do so well in West End next to Cabela’s, Home Goods, etc?
This premier entertainment facility is headquartered in Dallas and has locations throughout the U.S. and England. If you like golf, food, drinks, and fun then this is for you! Read more about it here. While we wait, don’t forget to check out The Range right here in our neck of the woods.
Many of you would like to see something similar to the Dallas World Aquarium. A place that has lots of different exhibits as well as educational ones.
Where do you go to hear comedy in Lubbock? Something like an Improv theater would be so fun! Caprock Winery used to have monthly comedy nights and we really enjoyed it. Finger foods, wine, and chuckles.
There are pros (dog and human socialization, exercise) and cons (irresponsible dog owners, playing too rough) to a dog park, but the general consensus is that you guys want to see one in Lubbock! Join the Lubbock Dog Park Facebook page. Read our “everything dog” article here.
One giant shopping area with factory store after factory store to buy everything you can imagine. Since manufacturers sell their stock directly to you, you save money! (At least, that’s what you tell your spouse!)
We know you don’t have to have a 500,000 population to support a zoo – think Amarillo or Alamogordo, NM. Smaller populated towns have great zoos!
