    Cewiedel, Thank you for drawing attention to this project through your Squidoo Lens.

    Maybe you could find a forum in among the New Orleans bloggers to tell us how you’ve used Squidoo to draw attention to hurricane relief?

    Since the 1960’s that parcel of land has had BOTH a grocery store and a drugstore. The picture you’re showing is the site of a former K&B drugstore, which became a RiteAid drugstore.

    The owners are replacing a drugstore with a drugstore and grocery store with a grocery store. You’re either a liar or an incompetent for identifying a drugstore building as a grocery store.

    You have some nerve calling anyone else incompetent.

  • I just copied what was in the Times Picayune, the public notices. I can send you a copy if you like. Thanks for giving me a choice of incompetent or liar, it is hard to decide.

    Although this parcel had been the home to both a grocery and a drug store, for the past 7 years there has been no grocery and for the past 5 (atleast) no drug store…it has just been blighted property. The leasees are proposing to build a drug store. A second potential leasee may be building a grocery store. These however are not both occupying the original footprint of the exsisting buildings…….. Yes, your angle on the building does in fact only show the K&B/Rite Aid side but everyone knows this property very well. Poor Wallace. Anger management?

  • Wallace seems to have evaporated. wish I could say I miss him. You are correct in your analysis that in the end this is just a piece of blighted property. Thanks for the clarification and I hope you return to see the updates.
