The soon-to-be arrival of a Mi Cocina in the Lakewood Shopping Center could spell major changes for the residents of Lakewood. Jeff Siegel of the Advocate reports that the arrival of Mi Cocina could mean an influx of more well-known, larger restaurants and retailers.
Siegel interviewed Darrell Hernandez, an executive vice president with United Commercial Retail, about the change and according to Hernandez, Mi Cocina will bring more eyes to the area.
Hernandez said, “No one likes to be a ground breaker. They want someone else to go into an area first. Since Mi Cocina has done that, you’ll see more big names looking at Lakewood.”
