It has been vacant since early 2005 and I doubt they have anything lined up, since all the retail is flocking over to the new Wal-Mart area.

Also, I would like a source on the Target rumor that I read on another thread.

On the other board, it states that Wal-Mart signs a 10 year lease on there old buildings after they relocate to a new facility.

Wal-Mart has a history of letting there old buildings run down in every town in the U.S.

For example, the old Wal-Mart in Bowling Green that is now H.H. Gregg sat empty for about 12 years until 2 years ago. It had grass growing up to the roof and the parking lot looked like a swamp.

The old Wal-Mart in Glasgow which left in 1990 became a Bud's discount store which was owned by Wal-Mart, but it really went downhill because they did not remodel the building. Bud's only lasted a few years and it became an eyesore again until Ford's Furniture bought the whole shopping center and renovated it about 8 years later around 1998.

From what I have heard the old one in E-Town is still in bad shape and they moved out about 12 or so years ago.

So the one in Glasgow may sit empty for years to come until there lease is up or they sell it at a cheaper price.

It's odd that they sign a ten year lease after they leave. What is the purpose?

To eliminate the possibility of any competition relocating to their old buildings.
Like Target, Kmart, etc...

Well put. In lamens terms it's called greed, monopoly, running out the "ma & pap" businesses, and creating a host of bubble-paying jobs to sell products mostly made overseas.

Walmart....promoter of Chinese slave labor and the selfish bully of local economies.

by the way, Ford's Furniture does not own the strip center they are located in.
It is owned by a man living in Bowling Green.
He went to school here and now lives in BG.

There have been rumors of Target coming to Glasgow before Wal-Mart ever moved. I seriously doubt that will happen anytime soon, in a little town like Glasgow nothing is going to be able to compete with Wal-Mart. Why go to Target and spend twice as much on the same cheap plastic crap when you can go buy said cheap plastic crap from Wal-Mart for "Always Low Prices!"

i personally know that an ice skating rink will be built this coming fall in the old wal-mart building. it will also house a very nice restaurant, which will serve alcohol as well. This large venture is being built and funded by glasgow businessman larry glass. The former winn- dixie will be the new bowling alley (similar to southern lanes in bowling green) this to is being built and operated by larry glass. Goody's and peebles will both be relocating in the new shopping center being built across the street from Wal-mart (behind the movie theater. Hal-mark and the other small "left over" business will eventually leave as well, moving over towards wal-mart. The remainer of this shopping center will be filled with a few retaurants and arcades. The name of this large venture being developed by Larry Glass and Darren Shirley is being called "larry land." Darren Shirley is said to be applying for an adult store license. Specialing in gay dominatrix attire his business will be called "Darrens Dungeon."
