‘They don’t provide any vital service.’ One neighborhood’s fight against another dollar store
After 30 years, Fort Worth Billiards Superstore is moving on up.
The store announced that it’s moving from its current location at 2312 Montgomery St. to the former Jobob Automotive Service location at 3970 W. Vickery Blvd. They bought the property and renovated the garage and added a new building in the front for a total space of 10,000 square feet. The showroom will be half of that space at 5,000 square feet.
The store features a variety of billiards products, from tables to stools to every kind of ball set you can think of. The store also features shuffleboard, foosball, air hockey and skeeball tables, in addition to pinball and arcade games that customers can play.
Trujillo said the growth of the area has led to a growth in its business. For 30 years, Fort Worth Billiards Superstore had been leasing the space at Montgomery Street, but the store decided to take a leap and buy the property on Vickery Boulevard outright.
“It’s a move we’re excited about, and we’re looking forward to moving into a better-suited building as our business continues to grow,” said Albert Trujillo, president of Fort Worth Billiards.
The new location is scheduled to open in the fall.
