The owners of La Estrella, the restaurant and tienda mexicana, held a grand opening Friday to celebrate opening their new, larger Lawrence location.

Raul and Adany Perez, originally from Querétaro, Mexico, opened La Estrella about 19 years ago in hopes of bringing Hispanic products to Lawrence’s growing Hispanic community, according to the store’s website.

The store was previously located in a strip at 25th and Iowa streets, but they were forced to move to make way for a new gas station. They had been in a temporary location sharing space with Lucky Seb’s as remodeling was underway on their new building.

They have been able to expand their selection of products in the store and heavily expand their menu because the new location is so much larger, Raul Perez said.

La Estrella’s hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. The new location is at 2323 Ridge Court, just east of the CVS at 23rd and Iowa streets.
