Original wrote:Right now, there are 4 grocery stores within a mile of each other on 90th (The new Wal-mart Neighborhood market at 90th & Ohio where the Hobby Lobby was, Bag N Save at 90th & Maple, the newish Fareway off 90th & Maple, and the Aldi at 90th & Maplewood). Spartan Nash has closed a bunch of the Bag N Save's in the Central/North West part of town (76th & Dodge, Miracle Hills, 108th & Maple) in addition to some No Frills but not the two that are closest to each other, the Bag N Save at 90th & Maple, and the No Frills at 80th & Blondo. There was a Family Fare billboard near 84th and Blondo for a few months, and I am betting that the branding I bet in the next round, one of those will go and one will be remodeled, and I hope it's the 90th and Maple Bag N Save that goes and the 80th & Blondo No Frills that gets remodeled, in part because I can walk to the No Frills. But that might also mean that the whole plaza there would have to get a facelift and while it needs it, I don't know that the current tenant lineup supports the capex that would require.
Both of the stores you mention are total dives. A full scale remodel would probably need the store to be closed down, unlike some of the other change overs.
