We told you in March that Spec’s Wines and Spirits would be taking over the former Blockbuster space at the northwest corner of Preston and Royal. According to the Preston Royal Village Facebook page, the new store is now open.

This is the second Dallas location. The first one opened near our neighborhood, too, at Walnut Hill on the east side of Central Expressway, an area that is becoming pretty competitive for wine and beer stores with Total Wine and More, and the Trader Joe’s that will be built in the future Preston Hollow Village on the west side.
