The Shops are coming so soon! We’re leasing up the last remaining space at this power center–and it is so nice to see it come together.
We spent Friday alongside the men and women of the Army National Guard and Reserve who gave us a glimpse into what they do each and every day. We have been proud ESGR employers for about three years and highly suggest other local businesses do the same. These men and women volunteer to help our state, our local law enforcement, and our nation in time of need. Providing a flexible work atmosphere that they can come back to post-deployment does not only influence their ability to do their service, but as business owners, it is also the right thing to do. Their service affects each and every American and becoming an ESGR employer is a small way to do our part in thanking our local men and women for that service.
We had an excellent time touring Las Cruces from a Black Hawk, riding in humvees, handling weaponry, and learning about all the National Guard and Reserve does for our local communities, the nation, and abroad. We would like to thank the 1st Battalion, 200th Infantry Regiment for having us as their guests. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs. Cynthia Estrada who organized this incredible event.

We are so proud to have sponsored this year’s The Purple Gala, benefiting La Casa Inc. Learn more about the people that make La Casa, Inc. possible at https://www.lacasainc.org. We believe their mission statement says it all, and more than that, we agree:
“We believe domestic violence and abuse can be overcome. We believe that dignity, social justice, safety, freedom from abuse and the pursuit of happiness are basic human rights for all, rights that can only be realized with the active engagement of the entire community.”
We’ve got Back-to-Back Demo Days going on now at The Shops at Abilene Village! Academy Sports + Outdoors, Burlington, Petco, Stanton Optical and many more retailers are joining the mix. We’re so excited to see how well this center is coming together. It’s going to bring so many new jobs to the area and provide the folks of Abilene a great place to get all of their sporting goods, quality discount clothing, pet everything, eye care needs, and rumor has it–some really, really good eats.
Demolition is going on now on one portion of the 15.8 acre site, while construction and paving continues on the rest. Like that old saying goes, “Out with the old, in with the new shopping center“.
The Chipotle Mexican Grill and Stanton Optical two-tenant building remodel is well underway in its 7th week of construction at 525 S Telshor. The parapet walls have been erected and the patio has been built out. Chipotle will have a West-facing patio that will be perfect for patrons dining al fresco and taking in Las Cruces sunsets.

It’s official: Las Cruces’ dining scene is leveling up. Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) is coming to the City of Crosses and bringing their famous burritos, burrito bowls, fajitas and healthy Mexican food options with them. The Denver-based fast-casual concept known for its quality sourced fresh ingredients will be located at the intersection of Telshor and Lohman at 525 S Telshor.
Chipotle is a well-loved brand that boasts sourcing “food with integrity”. The brand has eliminated all additives from their food, and in March announced that they were eliminating all preservatives off their menu including artificial flavors and colors. Their website claims that great food cannot be made with mediocre ingredients and highlights the importance of having a connection to farmers, and healthy livestock raised with sufficient space and no added nontherapeutic antibiotics or hormones. Since 1993 Chipotle has grown their brand to be one of the best-recognized health conscious dining option chains, and now owns and operates over 2,000 locations worldwide.
From Chipotle’s website: “Every choice we make—about who we work with, what we serve, and what we stand for—affects the bigger picture: the health of the planet. Nutrient-rich soil reduces the need for pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, buying locally reduces vehicle emissions from transportation, and humane animal husbandry means diminished reliance on antibiotics. As we strive each day to be better, we keep in mind that everything is connected.”
