Oh wow, I did not even notice that. Well good, that building was ugly and I didn't think it had much potential.

I was glad to see it finally torn down. Nothing would be better than an empty building for years. I haven't heard anything though.

It had a lease with Baker's for several more years. They finally got out of the lease and removed the building. I worked at that Baker's for 5 years. The building was in bad shape. Basically it was a building that got hit by a Tornado in 75, the front half was re-built then added on to 4 times. Its proably better it was removed and they start fresh.

PDM, Inc. (a company owned by Jack & Bob Baker) purchased the land from Kroger. The plan, for now, is to finish razing the building, grade it, then plant grass, and wait for someone to come along with a plan for the property.

Is it just me, or was that a very small grocery store? We only shopped there a few times since our Baker's was on 52nd and Ames, but even as a kid I remember getting the feeling that this store was smaller than the others.

I've been in there as a kid and for some reason, I thought it was a really cool store. I wish I had a chance to go back there at an age where I'd remember it.
