Still hoping for a IHOP and I would hope that rumor would come true. Copper mill (started in Mccook ,NE )has built a new one via younes hotel area as well as a Angus steakhouse they are supposed to open this month or early next month in Kearney.

Thanks, Jeffg78. I'm in Kearney each month for a few days for work, and I appreciate knowing what is new.

And that's a wrap...

The Kearney K-Mart will close this December, following the Summer closing of the Hastings store and the earlier GI store closing.

Scottsbluff will be losing their K-Mart as well.

K-Marts closing everywhere. Affirmation, I guess, of what we already knew- Walmart has taken over.. Unfortunately...

Everything has it's cycle. Some day the Walmarts will all be closing. Who know if it will be in our life time but it will happen.

Was in a museum a while back and looking at a mock up of an old time general store. I said that someday everyone will be looking at a mock up of a Walmart like this setup was. It sparked an interesting discussion for sure but all agreed that it would happen.

Or maybe Walmart will be the lone retail survivor of the 'franchise wars'... along with Taco Bell.

In a quick transition, the Kearney K-Mart building will be redeveloped and look for the first tenant to be Petsmart.

Alaska-based PenAir announced Monday that it has filed to reorganize under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

As part of its reorganization plan, PenAir said it plans to shut down its Denver and Portland, Oregon hub operations.

From Denver, PenAir provides air service to Kearney, North Platte and Scottsbluff through the federal Essential Air Service program.

The company said it is filing a request with the Department of Transportation to end service on those routes and others out of its Denver and Portland hubs
