    I don't know about the Olive Garden but they have been working at Docks for weeks now.

    I think it stems from when Lowes (corporate) tried to buy Rona (corporate) about 2 years ago and people started to speculate if our local Rona would become a Lowes, but realizing it was too small, a few people theorized that the Zellers could be a good location for a Lowes because at that point, Zellers had just announced their closure and everyone was certain that another major retailer was already in place to fill that location. I think the Idea that Lowes was looking for a window to agressively expand their Canadian operations at a time when there was a lot of retail space available locally, got a few imaginations running. The Lowes bid to take over Rona was eventually withdrawn.

    Now... more recently (for the last couple of months) a rumour had been widely circulating that a major retailer was looking at space on West 3 Mile in Sault Michigan. Several names were speculated and a lot of people were certain that it was Lowes, but a few weeks back it was announced that Meijer is in fact in the process of submitting a proposal for a store on that site.

    Maybe that's what pushed this rumour back to life...

    I guess you beat me to the post, but my most recent thread eludes to the Lowe's store coming here, and gives the link to the news story.

    I would prefer more selection myself. There are so many good Italian and Oriental restaurants now. Something Greek, Ukrainian, Polish,Portuguese, Spanish perhaps? A little diversity is nice, no?

    I think the the terms "cupcake" and "sweetheart" might be considered to be harassment in most workplaces.

    Just a thought.
