Re: Allianz Field and Snelling-Midway Development

There are rumors floating around that the (recently renovated) Midway Cub Foods will be closing. I don't know how much stock to take in that, but TCF customers have received notice that their in-store branch will be closing.

Speaking of jersey barriers, NE corner of Rice and Como has them surrounding the old Stahl lanes footprint. Anyone have info on what's going up? Combination coffee shop and dialysis clinic.

Also, and I know this will sound unpopular, but I think Target, inspite of it's success on University, might be closing that store too if the...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Some of the reports about the closing say Walmart isn't looking into replacing the store with another one near the Capitol. I think it was in the Pioneer Press report.
