Not enough and GI is too diverse, more logical town would be Kearney, i would never would guess that Whole Foods Market and Planet Fitness would go there.

Grand island itself is only about 50,000 pop. but when you add the 3 counties(hall/adams/buffalo) together it's about 130,000-140,000 people, with the majority of shopping/dinning in grand island is pretty much the market to go to for central Nebraska.

Not sure the exact reason but usually when you brick up a window it's so they can put walls where the windows are, close off a room, or windows are too big and old so they put in a smaller window like they have.
