  1. Those numbers do surprise me. It seems lately many mass transit companies have been reporting more growth every year. It also seems I see more bikers these years than when I was a kid. Maybe the numbers are due to high suburban growth, I guess.
  2. Their wages have never been something to brag about but I am sure they are not going up. Back years ago I went to Wally world (Walmart) for better pay though I cannot brag them up neither. Meijer has made a lot of changes from old school. They use to carry a lot of name brands. Now it is one, at best two name brands along side their own brand. I love their sale prices because a third of them are their normal price. In saying all of that though, Meijer does still have the competition beat over all relating to price, though some weeks Family fare do give them a bit of competition with their sale
  3. Thanks John for letting me know. I hope they stay with those plans. It certainly gives me a true hope for the future of the market and area.
  4. Very cool thread of the vintage markets indeed. Also very cool pictures. Does anyone know when the inside market will open and if the hours will be better.

  6. Thanks for the info John. I am very glad to hear it.
  7. Some things about this seems great, but how will this effect other bus routes. For instance, the #1 Division bus runs to the 54th st Miejer but not the silver line. From 36th st to downtown the #1 bus runs a good portion of the day every 15 minutes. So how will this work? Less frequent service (20-30 minutes) and a hard time reaching the department stores on 54th st. I don't know. Also the limited stops increase walking by up to two thirds from what it is now. Is this servive going to be better for the average user or worse and how will connections to other bus routes be met concerning transfe
