Retail Roundup: Taco Cabana adding home delivery, Legoland sneak peek

March 29, 2019 GMT

Here’s the rundown: Customers can now get Taco Cabana delivered to their house and two attractions downtown are weeks away from opening.

Taco Cabana is partnering with DoorDash to offer home delivery. Customers can order food through either company’s website or app and track it in real-time.

There’s no delivery fee for orders over $10 through March 31, a reduced fee of $2.99 through April 8 and a $4.99 fee after those deals end.

A trendy cocktail lounge downtown opens Monday, according to staff writer Paul Stephen. Jet-Setter is located at 229 E. Houston St., the former home of The Last Word.

Sip Brew Bar and Market, Smoke Shack, Local Coffee, a Spurs store, Adina’s Market, The Luxury, Boss Bagels and SIP are all headed to San Antonio International Airport, staff writer Dylan McGuinness reports. However, a Chik-fil-A restaurant isn’t among the newcomers.

The vendors, which will open in about a year, are replacing InMotion/Stars of San Antonio, Brookstone, Natalie’s, Raising Cane’s, Simply Books/Starbucks, Gervin’s and Blimpie’s at the airport.
