In case you missed it, here's a roundup of the five most-read stories in San Marcos, Buda and Kyle in March.

1. Corner on Main development to bring restaurants, retail to east Buda

The details: A new development called Corner on Main has been greenlighted by the Buda City Council through a specific-use permit that will bring restaurants and retail to the eastern side of the city. The mixed-use development will be located on approximately 5.5 acres of land at the corner of Main Street and Fire Cracker Drive, east of I-35 in Buda.

Notable quote: “The reason we're developing, obviously, is there's darn near 3,000 houses in Sunfield right now, and there's hardly a lick of retail,” said Ryder Jeanes with CLD Realty, the broker of the development. “Retail follows rooftops.”

2. Last Chance Store opens at San Marcos Premium Outlets

The details: Last Chance Store, a retailer that purchases overstocked merchandise, returns and discontinued items, opened a new location Feb. 17 at the San Marcos Premium Outlets, 1919 I-35, Ste. 213, next to the Nautica Factory Store. The store receives weekly inventory to keep stock fresh. Items generally are limited in quantities, but customers pay a flat price each day, no matter the value of the products.

3. Italian chain Fazoli's shutters San Marcos Location

What happened: Italian chain Fazoli's closed its San Marcos location at 927 Hwy. 80 sometime in March, though it is unclear what date the restaurant closed. A note was posted on the front door of Fazoli's.

Notable quote: “We would like to thank everyone for their patronage over the past 20 years,” the note read. “We are permanently closed for business.”

4. 3 food trucks relocate to Buda

The big picture: Buda Biscuit & Baking Co., Devil Dog Coffee Co. and Uncle Buda all relocated to BTX Business Park, located at 1095 FM 1626, Buda, on March 1. All three trucks relocated from 12406 Old San Antonio Road, Manchaca.

5. New bar, restaurant Duett's Texas Club coming soon to Martindale

The details: Duett’s Texas Club, a new bar and restaurant located at 420 Main St., is scheduled to open in Martindale in early summer. Duett’s Texas Club is owned by Katie and Ryan Grametbaur, the former Martindale River Cafe’s husband-and-wife duo, as well as Maury Domengeaux and Steve Schossareck.

How it happened: Domengeaux and Schossareck purchased the building and were working to restore it but then wondered what they were going to do with it. They then approached the Grametbaurs to see if they would be interested in running a restaurant downstairs.

Notable quote: “Each one of the members opening this are very passionate about their part,” Katie Grametbaur said. “It’s not just opening big business; it’s opening something that we can feel very proud of and feel that we’re doing something that’s meaningful into our community and for people visiting, and I hope people can see that when they walk in.”

Honorable mention: Agreement reached to keep Crestwood Center businesses open for the foreseeable future

What happened: With just a week left until the water was set to be shut off at the Crestwood Center, meaning the closure of several local businesses, funding has been secured to keep them open for the foreseeable future.

Some context: The entire Crestwood Center was at risk of having its water shut off by the city as it ran off a septic system for wastewater that was out of compliance and posed health and safety risks to the community.

What's next: The property owners have assured the city of San Marcos that construction will begin soon on the wastewater expansion project to connect to the city's water system.
