E. Colonial between 436 and Primrose

Recommended Posts

Today, an item I ordered online was out of stock at the SoDo Target so I went to pick it up at the Maguire store.

I was stunned at the redo - the exterior is now very red and the old garden center entrance has been replaced by very attractive landscaping. The interior has also been updated (that’s appropriate given the Target opened circa 1990 and was originally a Gold Triangle dating back to 1972).

Oddly, however, parking in the surface lot at 2pm on a Monday was a pain. I much prefer the SoDo garage!

I haven't been in there since the redo.  My wife said they moved the Starbuck which must have been a feat since Starbucks didn't previously operate in that store.  I wonder where she thinks that Starbucks moved from?

Ran in for a few items on Sunday afternoon around 4pm and the line at Starbucks was 6 deep ... go figure.

I think they’ve don’t a decent job on the East Colonial redo. I personally like the smaller format Targets more than the Supers ... much easier to get around in general, and specifically if I’m running in for just a few things.

I drove thru the parking lot where the new Lucky's is going and it is really progressing quickly. I didn't get a photo, but the new exterior looks about 90% ready and peering in the open door the interior finish work looks to also be about 90%. I wouldn't be surprised to see refrigeration going in by months end and opening in June.

June 5 is the date I've heard.

Mrs Codypet plans on being at the bacon cutting ceremony with bells on.  That said that's also when baby Codypet is due.  So maybe she'll be there as well.

Use Shipt!          And congratulations!

Mrs. Codypet figured that out.  They were running a 1-year subscription deal a few weeks back.   It might still be going on.  Thanks for the well wishes guys!

Well, just a skosh west of Primrose but they are gutting the interior of the retro Colonial Plaza McD’s. The entire dining room and counter area has been removed (the drive-thru is still open).

It will be interesting to see what they do (although it’s been years since I ate at a McD’s).

Also, I saw an article this week where McD’s franchisees are scared to death of the rise of Chick-Fil-A. Apparently, CFA has hit #3 in US fast food sales with only about 1/7 the number of locations (mostly in the South). Even more frightening for owners at Ronald’s place is that CFA doesn’t discount much, making it scads more profitable.

Totally unrelated but great to see in the area: like Ferncreek and Anderson St before it, part of Hampton Ave. has just gotten resurfaced at long last. Best of all, it’s asphalt - smooooooth! (Note to City -  if you want to get serious about people using bikes - bricks ain’t the answer.)

Hopefully, Summerlin is going to get redone with the replacement of the major sewage pipe next year - it’s falling apart. If it must be brick, hopefully they’ll use the ones they did on Mariposa which were a complete joy (until they tore them up again for access to 520 E. Church).
