  1. Every time they do this I get my hopes up that a legacy carrier or Southwest will bring in a useful destination with a useful schedule. And I'll still cross my fingers that we get more direct access to the west coast. But, I'm putting my money on two new routes to sunny Florida served by Allegiant. There's still gotta be two cities we can't fly to down there, right??
  2. Question for any road nerds out there. I've been seeing this device pop up at intersections around town and am curious what it's used for. Any ideas?
  3. I used to work at that store. A long time ago it was a McDonald's, and prior to that it was a unique-to-Meijer fast service restaurant (Fred's Grill?). The staff locker room was expanded to part of what used to be the kitchen, the red floor tiles and white kitchen walls are still there. For a long time it sat empty, and was used for extra storage of bulky for sale items like grills and bikes. As of early 2018 it was used for overflow regional pharmacy staff with cubicles up there. Not sure if that's still the case now.
  4. They're still moving forward with the international arrivals project. Breaking ground now. https://www.woodtv.com/news/kent-county/project-to-bring-direct-international-arrivals-to-ford-airport-begins/
  5. I hope the Grand Rapids Art Museum or the Public Museum preserve some of these murals. It seems that this will be a pivotal moment in American society and it would be good to archive parts of Grand Rapids' place in the movement.
  6. All new Meijer stores and most remodels going forward are getting this enclosed section. Source: I work there.
  7. I don't have much info on the Alpine store but understand several departments will be touched and will have completely revamped checkout lanes. We must be mindful that it is the closest store to the corporate office so while it's not a flagship it will always have inportant sets of eyeballs on it. In related news, keep an eye out on the Jenison store this year. I am being told that they will get a major remodel like the Clyde Park store got last year.
  8. What has also changed is the addition of the abbreviations for Street and Avenue.
  9. There are some on Jefferson too, I'll try to snap a photo tomorrow morning.
  10. I know the new name but I won't post about it yet until they make the announcement public. Apparently they had hundreds of choices that the lawyers kept shooting down because some part of the name was too close to some brewery or winery or specific beer, wine, or spirit. They definitely had to be creative!
  11. I got to tour the mines for work.. really cool, and really tasty.
  12. The airport has two announcements today. One right now is supposed to be about the $90M expansion. Number two at 1:30 will be about the "new airline" which hasn't been officially announced yet but by inference based on the Milwaukee announcement later this morning will be the rebirthed Midwest Express.
  13. https://fox6now.com/2019/08/27/midwest-express-ready-to-announce-initial-flight-destinations-on-wednesday-aug-28/ Latest news from Milwaukee... Midwest Express is coming back and announcing their first routes on... August 28th.
