A couple notes:

  • The neighboring strip mall is “in the planning stages” and there are “a number of interested tenants in the space.” (see above)
  • Watch for the new Festival Foods signs to be going up in early May 2022.
  • signs for FestivalFestival Foods
  • That area, formerly home to Kmart, Sentry Foods, and Ponderosa Steakhouse will once again be a hot topic as Culver’s is nearly complete where the old Ponderosa once stood.
