I wonder how much longer the Radio Shack will last. There's also a recruiting office next door. Don't remember if it is Navy, Air Force, Army or Marines.
Unless I knew the location, I'd have guessed you were discussing a dying indoor mall.
I know, it's sad. Very strange how long this development has sat there mostly empty. It's really a great location...easy to get in and out, if you live in the area, of course. The Target, PetSmart, movie theater, and other stores out there seem to be doing well. What they really need at Sorenson Park Plaza is a big new HyVee. But, from what I've heard there were agreements, whether formal or not, that prevented a major grocery store from being built that would compete with the Bakers at 72nd & Ames. There are quite a few new houses being built north and west of Sorenson Plaza, so hopefully more retail will come in eventually. There are several out-lots waiting to be built-out too.
By contrast, it's unbelievable how much retail exists out in the West Center corridor, west of 132nd. I guess it's greatly affected by where a lot of people choose to live and raise kids...near Millard Schools, Papio/Lavista, Gretna, Elkhorn or Westside districts, not OPS, unfortunately.
