    good things happening around that intersection. I expect it will be a huge hit.

    Drove by the Sam's Club today and noticed that most of the signage is up and all of the landscaping is in place. I also noticed a lot of vehicles in the parking lot. I assume that workers are setting up the store fixtures and getting ready for the merchandise to arrive. I imagine that they could also be training the new employees.

    a week or so ago, there was a table at the WM on NW Expwy/Council taking employment applications. The lady at the table said they were supposed to open early March. .3 March I believe she said.

    Grand opening is March 3rd.

    Just got a mailer since I live relatively close by.

    Says it will have a Fresh Department (picture of strawberries), fuel station and full-service pharmacy.

    I'm looking forward to this because the one at I-40 and MacArthur has a super crappy parking area, and I have to go about once a month for bulk dog food.

    Anybody know what's going on directly across the street between City Glass and San Marcos? They cleared the building there about 2 weeks ago.

    Demolition permits for 4100 and 4106 N May were filed back in November but no building permits have been filed. Future use of this property is not immediately apparent. More info here: 1406 N. May - OKCTalk

    To avoid the cluster that is their parking lot, I've always parked on the north side of the building (gas station side). There's almost always a spot either right up against the building, or else by the basket return. It's perhaps a little bit further of a walk, but you never have to deal with cars pulling in and out, people crossing the street, etc.

    Yes, I've done that.

    It's more that the parking lot is so awful... Ugly, barren and depressing.

    Yesterday was the first day of gasoline sales. We pulled in after seeing the price signs on May.

    The attendant was a nice older man. He said that very few people had bought gas yet (as they probably missed the small signs). He also said that the store was targeting people living downtown. According to his information, it's the largest Sam's in the metro, and the layout will be different from the others here. They're set to open March 3.

    I noticed the listing for the Sam's Club location on GasBuddy today and thought they must've jumped the gun. I guess I was wrong.

    That sounds about right. I saw a lot of cars in the parking lot last week. I would assume it is employees getting stock ready.

    They've made an official announcement on the March 3rd opening.

    I received a mailer.

    I received that mailer several days ago with an invitation to a pre-opening event. I'm not a Sam's Club person though so I won't be going.

    Attended the pre-grand opening event on Wednesday. It's a typical Sam's Club. I hope the opening of Sam's Club helps to spur a redevelopment of Mayfair Village.

    I wish to God may avenue (like classen) between reno and NW63RD could be added to urban design commission to stop the horrific signage going up. I'll log into my phone and post a couple offenders...including okc's favorite son: on cue.

    I'm 95% sure that huge sign was grandfathered in and wouldn't otherwise be allowed there if built from new.

    I'm 100% sure. And I saw it up close the other day while sitting at the stoplight, and it is an abomination. Looks absolutely terrible, condition-wise, and doesn't in any way fit with the shiny new place it advertises. Combined with the jumble of overhead wires, it looks like a bunch of rusty clutter, and gives the top-heavy illusion that it could topple-over.

    It's a shame that On Cue couldn't see past the idea of having a sign that dwarfs all others nearby. Bigger isn't always better.

    It's amazing to me that they didn't even bother to paint over the rusty white metal. Really an eyesore.

    I have a friend that knows the OnCue head honcho and I am going to ask him to tell the guy that sign looks out of place. Don't know if it will do any good but IMO it needs to be changed. I seen it the other day driving down May and it sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Yeah it used to belong to the dealership that was sold several times over. It's grandfathered. But May Ave between 50th to 23rd is a signage hell. I especially hate the giant cheeseburger pole sign. Not that it would be any better as a box on a pole.

    This grandfathered sign business probably need to stop. I saw the new vape shop in the "terry's two way" building across from taft. It's just got a cheap vinyl tarp hung over the old sign with bungee cords. Signage should be like plumbing, electric, ADA, and everything else. When a new business goes in or the building is sold, it needs to be brought up to code.

    I'm a fan of broadway signage: requiring it to be attached to the structure. It inspires people to build more attractive, eye catching signs. Rather than HUGE in your face, blocking your view from anything but the sign in sight triangles and lines of sight.

    Thè sign even predates the dealership; it was at the very least from the carpet place that was there in the eighties and nineties. One thing I noticed when looking at it is that demo might be pricey, and perhaps that was a factor in retaining it. But really, it is probably mostly that it dominates the surrounding landscape. And yeah, I noticed the rusty/bare/unpainted metal too.

    Back to the subject...

    I went in this Sam's last night and I didn't notice it was any different than any other... Laid out the same with the same items.

    That said, I'm happy to have one closer in as I buy bulk dog food about once a month and a few other items there. Only 10 minutes from downtown.
