    Default Re: 39th & N. Penn Homeland

    As a reminder, Goodwill did not buy this property; they are only renting part of it.

    It must be said this is a setback for those who were hoping that this would be become a proper district centered around the gay community.

    I know Ed Shadid has been stumping for this but the whole stretch is still pretty ratty and industrial looking.

    Trading a grocery store for a Goodwill won't help, nor will the closing of Coits.

    maybe an Aldi could take over the remaining space?

    Goodwill will not do anything meaningful with the property. The former Buchanan's at 89th and Penn is an empty parking lot on most days. Half the building is a junkpile inside with litter all over the place. The other half is a thrift store that is lucky if it does Dollar General traffic volume. The parking lot will do great as for sale by owner drop off lot.

    Goodwill does not own the property. The property will be upgraded nicely.

    Do you know any of the specifics about the redevelopment?

I wonder what the other tenant will be.
    Not to mention after Homeland pulled out, it flipped crappy grocery store concepts twice with no luck, and a 3rd never opened. Better something here than nothing.

    Wait. Ed Shadid said that gentrification is bad. We cannot have neighborhood improvement.

    Why the problem with the Goodwill thrift store? I guess you either love or hate these kinds of stores. The thing about Goodwill is this is their way of raising money to pay the handicapped workers in industrial work that they bid on right along with other companies. The training and jobs they offer at these manufacturing facilities are wonderful! They couldn't do that without the thrift store revenue.

    i disagree that Goodwill won't do anything with the property. The newer stores that have opened are relatively attractive as thrift stores go. For example, the new one in the west end of the shopping center @ NW 23rd & Meridian

    Default Homeland Greenhouse - May & Britton

    http://newsok.com/new-greenhouse-to-...rticle/3671790

    It's been 2 years so I assume this project isn't going to happen. Does anyone know specifics?

    Wow, that would be totally cool. Hope it happens.

    The Bright Farms website says a farm is "coming soon" to 1-585 NE 70th in OKC, but that address makes no sense. It's the site of a drilling company.

    Default old homeland 39th and penn

    Does anyone know what is going on at the old homeland on 39th and penn? There have been trucks there doing some work and taking things out. I stopped by the other day and looked in and the whole store is now an empty shell. I looked at the permits and it seemed like they were approving a remodel to split it into two spaces. One 10k sq ft and the other 22k sq ft.

    Default Homeland on Main Street closing at the end of march!

    Thank goodness. Homeland got away far too long with providing sub par service at that location. Hopefully something better fills it up soon.

    Signs are posted on the doors that they will close by the end of the month.

  18. Default Re: Homeland on Main Street closing at the end of march!

    Have a feeling we're going to see more contraction of Homeland stores in the coming months. I've yet to visit a Homeland that was even close to price-competitive, and most (well, many) of them are in former Safeway or Albertson's locations that had already failed....

    The trick with Homeland is the very favorable coupon doubling policy that ends up bringing their prices lower than competitors if you use it correctly. Of course not everyone is going to bother with that.

    Regardless of that, them closing the Main Street location is probably good. It'll allow them to focus on the other stores in Norman but also allow that eye sore to be torn down and the space developed.

    She said they double manufacturer coupons unless the coupon says do not double. Most of the annoyance was trying to match the coupons up with their sale ads to maximize the savings.

    Actually, they double the coupon amount up to $1.00. It's really not difficult to match coupons with sales whenever possible.

    This. Even if it is do not double, it'll likely still double.

    As far as matching up, just use Consumer Queen or any of the other coupon matching sites: http://www.consumerqueen.com/categor...#axzz1xWwQu2Ua

    Plenty of sites online or from the manufacturers directly, and of course the easiest place - the Sunday paper.
