Vacant Store Updates
« on: October 22, 2019, 09:42:19 AM »
Walked past the former Sunshine Shop on 37th Ave & 86th street yesterday and a nail salon is opening in its place.

What happened to the Fusion place on 37th and 85th(?) that was to open this summer?

It was a toy store for small kids.

There's a Helena Fusion "coming soon" between 84th and 85th. Is that the one you're looking for?

Just spoke to some of the workers on 82nd st. The big, double retail space that's under construction is going to be a Spectrum location. I'm not mad about it. It's actually convenient for service!

My guess is that was an overly optimistic timetable. Sort of like how people will expect (hope) their kitchen renovation to take a month, and somehow it turns in to two.

Speaking of vacant store fronts, does anyone have any intel on what will be going into the old Coral Aquarium and Pet Center?

I'm glad the Sunshine shop is gone. Hopefully, my complaints helped.
They illegally allowed folks to shop with SNAP and EBT cards for things like candy and toys.
It was infuriating to see them make illegal sales and abuse the government welfare system.
How do I know? We were offered this payment option, and they kept a sign in the window.

Scammers. Just like restaurants that don’t accept credit cards, so they don’t need to pay taxes on all that cash.

no wonder McDonalds, Burger King and Subway made such big profits for decades. never knew none of those chains refused to pay taxes until recently....
