Re: Et tu, Walmart? Then, fall KMart

Speaking of Walmarts and Kmart areas, would Walmart ever consider an urban format store in Minneapolis? Nicollet-Lake redevelopment, or the old Rainbow space at Hi-Lake ("Downtown Longfellow" excuse me)? I think the best way for Walmart to enter Minneapolis would be to replace the KMart on Nicollet...

Et tu, Walmart? Then, fall KMart

With the news that the KMart on Robert St in West St. Paul(not to mention the Moorhead store and 62 other non-Minnesotan KMarts) closing soon, let's start a guessing game on when KMart closes their remaining Twin City area stores(and who replaces them). My guesses: Minneapolis: Probably re-developed...

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

I'm more interested in what will happen to the KMart store off I-35E and Maryland, not just the Sears store just west of the capitol.

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Lots of polka music this morning. Poor connection to the park currently, but maybe that will change once all fencing is down. Will event screening always be as it was today? I hadn't imagined you'd wait in a crush of people on Chicago avenue and was surprised by that. I happened to see most people ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

For the longest time, I had been torn between going to the open house and waiting for another time, say during one of the State Soccer or Football championships. But today, I decided to see about getting a ticket. I snagged one for Sunday, starting at Noon. Can't wait to actually see what's on the i...

Re: "A Line" Snelling Avenue Arterial Bus

I know for a fact that there can be nothing done about this, but why on earth did they not build a stop directly at the Midway Parkway entrance to the State Fairgrounds?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Keep all eyes and ears on the lookout for any leaks. The NFL says it has the schedule ready to roll out, but is not yet ready to announce a day to roll it out.

I just found out that Wetzel's Pretzels is now at the mall, but I'm not sure where it is. It's only their 2nd location in the state(Mankato was first).

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Heads Up! The Vikings will reveal who their first preseason opponent today at 3. Everything I've seen points to a week 3 home opener, possibly on National TV.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

In the case of the Jos. A Bank location on Nicollet Mall, their sister store Men's Wearhouse is two blocks down the mall, so closing the Jos. A Bank location makes sense. Also, as has been mentioned, this is part of a wave closures by their parent company. About 250 stores are closing within the com...

Do the current Go-To cards work with the new readers? I'm curious because the card that I have is 3 years old and I'm thinking about buying a new one.

The US Bank Stadium Twitter account has this gem: https://twitter.com/usbankstadium/statu ... 88?lang=en

Oh, and on the interior webcam, there's water leaking into the western upper deck.

On the webcam, they're removing some of the zinc cladding on the easternmost portion of the north side. Any reason why?

Re: Lake & Fremont Apartments (Cheapo site) - 1300 West Lake

It's odd that Target is sticking to the small store format, when Walmart is getting out of it. The Bentonville Boys are closing all of their Walmart Express stores by the end of the month, as part of their first mass closing in company history(269 stores in all both in the U.S. and Internationally, ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

With news that Luke Bryan is coming to play US Bank Stadium this August as the first concert(YMMV as to whether he's a BIG name artist), we can pinpoint when the Vikings' first preseason home game will be. It is now absolutely certain that the first game will take place during Week 3, possibly a nat...

I should have said updated on Street View, the overall map has been updated.
