    Default Somebody told me today.

    That the K-mart is going to be a Lowes.

    Did they announce that on the news?

    If not you heard it here first.

    I think that building would be too small for a Lowes...but hope you are correct.

    I would think they would want a new free standing store if they did come...which I doubt. What was your RELIABLE SOURCE about them coming ??

    I love that once the Zellers Plaza got empty it is back to being called the K-Mart...

    Yeah, this rumour has been around for a while.

    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 The Lowes bid to take over Rona was eventually withdrawn.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...

    In the very recent past, Lowe's was approached and declined to answer one way or the other. Got this from a local news piece.

    Can you name one that does not? I can't. They all pass crap off as things we can't live without.

    I just heard from a contractor that the tender is in at the Builders Exchange. Odd that there is nothing in the news?

    Chipotle is a pepper I believe, a "chipolte" on the other hand baffles me.
