Re: Three Light

A store downtown would be a lot more convenient than driving all the way to Mission, Independence, or Chouteau for at least dozens of thousands of people from eastern WyCo through the greater east side / northeast and near-in NKC, not to mention more convenient for a whole bunch of transit-dependen...

Re: Topeka,ks Sears on the list

So all of the ones barely getting by in small towns don't have to update their signs from the 90s. They're hoping to capitalize on the heavily tarnished Sears name. Sears was actually helping Hometown franchisees set up stores in markets that they were vacating for some time, and some dying malls e...

Re: Jefferson City

Good to know, it has been a number of years since I spent any time there. Topeka just can't ever catch a break when it comes to any situation, even when they're trying to prevent the worst from happening. It's honestly not a horrible town. Two of the suburban school districts are good, and one of t...

Re: Topeka,ks Sears on the list

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I again think you're missing the point. We'd all love the plaza to become an urban neighborhood, but I'm saying there are systemic issues that keep it from getting more urban. I agree with the "last word syndrome" point though, so I'll recuse myself from here and let it return to actual p...

Re: 95 Metcalf South update

Yes and they might sell some of the same stuff. Lees Summit is a big city. Shopko isn't even St. Louis so isn't Meijer. Only different between St. Louis and KC area is Supermarkets and some Food places. Have you ever been to a Sears Hometown or a Shopko Hometown? They do not sell the same products....

Re: Ikea moving to Urban Core & Online

I don't see this affecting Merriam in the near future, though. The store was very strategically placed within the metro to serve the downtown/plaza, JoCo, Lawrence, and Northland markets.

Re: 95 Metcalf South update

Shopko Hometown is like the Sears in Lees Summit off of 50 highway. Shopko is like Kmart. Meijer is like Super Target and Supercenter Walmart. Hsrbor Freight but would have to go on 95 Metcalf North or so on near by. Supercuts or so on are Snall Shops that would work. Most big Box/Junior Anchors al...

Re: Metro North Mall

I can only assume that this will poach some tenants back from Zona Rosa since Zona has a over 40% vacancy rate at the moment. Wouldn't it be funny to see Gap move back?

Re: 95 Metcalf South update

Field and Stream at one time this year was rumored for Bellmonte Pellmonade in Shawnee. Shopko Hometown has stores in KS and those cities are much small cities then ones in KC area and won't want to compete with Nebraska Furniture Mart and so on. Five Below would work because has locations in other...

At least they're not trying to divide it by zero. The resulting implosion would make some Leawood residents happy that they'd be several miles closer to Nordstrom Rack :lol:

Re: Cinetopia sues AMC

Maybe if Cinetopia operated competitively in anyway they wouldn't be performing so bad. If I were them, I would go after Dumpster Fires owner too for never finishing the development.
