Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

They started working on something new in the old Rainbow parking lot. A long chunk of the parking lot is all fenced off and torn up, as well as the sidewalk the curved around the Wendy's. Wonder if this is the beginning of that 5 story tall apartment complex they mentioned at a community meeting a ...

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

I heard the Old Spaghetti Factory is closing, anyone heard what's causing then to leave? They always seemed pretty popular.

Just guessing, but the city has been systematically culling out all of the ash trees on public property.
Ah that would make sense. Damn ash borers

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Anyone know why they've been cutting down a lot of the trees along Minnehaha between the Target/Cub parking lots and the ALDI parking lots? That lack of green is making the area look even worse :(

Denny's has permanently closed a sign on the door said today
Oh? Hopefully whatever takes its place still has breakfast stuff. Like a local breakfast joint or one the slightly better version of Denny's like a Baker's Square/Perkins or something

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

It's also not an area where I would expect a high-end restaurant to do well (there are a number of good restaurants in the area, just not what I would consider fancy ones). I think they would have been better off leaning into the diner concept, personally. Yeah, two doors down from a payday loan pl...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Same here, I have mixed feelings on this one. Almost anything is better than what's there now. Adding the tree islands to the parking lot will make it a little less hostile to life. However, since no structured parking is being included with the building it limits any future development of the lot....

Re: Cedar/Minnehaha/Franklin Intersection

Isn't that where they've currently got the temporary shelters they set up to try to help with the massive homeless tent city? I wonder if this building is supposed to be a next step in that to provide a more permanent place for them.

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

All the 'NYT Highlighted Comments' are people who are 'afraid they'll have to start locking their doors.' When the newspaper of the densest city in the country is siding with the NIMBYs, something's seriously messed up. Right? You'd think they'd realize this kind of stuff in New York. I used to liv...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Oh, and I forgot to note that ALDI also pays its employees a decent wage compared to other grocery stores. IIRC cashiers start out at around $14/hr or something and if you're a shift manager you're getting $18-$20 ish an hour. Not bad for grocery. I'd much rather support that over Cub which seems to...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

I don't quite understand the excitement about Aldi. I think it revolves around getting commodity food products for the lowest possible price. Is this correct? It's the price, but also the ease of shopping. ALDI's don't have a bunch of different brands of each thing. Most of it is all their particul...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

I think I've only been to an Aldi's once. How is their quality? Get what you pay for? They honestly are pretty decent. Never had any issues personally with any of their produce/meat etc compared to what I would get at a Cub. I particularly love getting gallons of milk for under 2 bucks, which seems...

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

So the official opening is tomorrow but the ALDI was open today for kind of a preview day for the neighbors. Place looks fantastic. Different interior layout/design compared to the other ALDI's around the town. Lot more modern and bright. Layout is actually somewhat similar to your typical supermark...

ALDI as of this afternoon. You can't really see in this pic but it looks like some of the shelves in there are already stocked with various dry goods.

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Hmmm, doesn't look like they are going to have it all done in 10 days to me. Aldi is supposed to be open for business on 12/13? I guess if they have the inside done already, they will just have the outside to finish and clean up. Have you seen where the deliveries will be made? I haven't noticed an...

Looks like they took down all the chain link fencing that was in the parking lot in the last day or so, the ALDI is looking good and looking on track for that Dec 13th target Still no idea what is going in the other half of the building, anyone heard?

Re: Hi-Lake - Minnehaha Mall (Target/Cub) - Downtown Longfellow

Nice! Was there any word/sign on what is next to that new Aldi in the other part of the building?

Also, the Target remodel finished up in the last week or two. Major improvement, looks way better.
