West Gurley Empty

Workmen are finally finishing off this empty commercial building over on West Gurley across from the one-time Fry's supermarket; the parking lot and walkways were being finished when I was there last about two weeks ago. A pair of buddies and I have been following the fast -- and then slow -- development of this property for many, many months. Since no information has been posted at the site, we speculated that originally the structure had been contracted for by some sort of merchant who then backed out when the economy turned down. Now it looks as tho there will definitely be an occupant -- maybe we'll find out in the next couple of weeks. Business in the area should be picking up, now that the AZ Dept. of Economic Security has consolidated all its offices into the old Fry's premise. I still say it' s too bad that Trader Joes didn't take the location!

It would be nice to see that end of town reviving a bit.
I don't think we've been to that Mexican Resturant since your brother, Hermano was here:)

brain -- indeed it would be neat. They could probably use one more restaurant, with a potential source of customers now ensconced. As for the visit to Casa Sanchez, lets do it again. Soon. When I am human again!

Oh how I miss a good Mexican restaurant.

steve -- I would think by this time, you would have a Mexican restaurant or two even in Germany! Now, here in Arizona I miss a selection of Mexican restaurants that serve mole, tho there is one place here in town.
