That's my point! If the center doesn't attract a Starbucks & a Scooters, or even just one brand with multiple stores, then why locate two companies which significantly overlap one another in the same place? As a matter of fact, the GNC's in Omaha were all owned at one time by the guy who started Complete Nutrition.
There actually are two Starbucks, sort of. Â There is a Starbucks in the Hy-Vee, and another across 370 to the North-East on the corner of 72nd and 370. Â (Of course just about a mile or so East of there is another stand-alone Starbucks with another located inside the Bakers). Â Starbucks everywhere.
(I miss Barista's in downtown Papillion.)
