Are we getting a Target in Latrobe? I heard the drive in as well as several houses on Theater Street were sold in order for Target to be built. Apparently a lot of people heard this as there is now a sign up at the drive in that Target did not buy them out. Does anyone know anything?

On 11/3/2010, the Hi-Way Drive-in sign says, "No Target did not buy us".

" the Hi-Way Drive-in sign says, "No Target did not buy us."

Has anyone seen the trailers for this movie yet?

Your sentence is a "double entendre": housing trailers being sold to accommodate Target; and trailers made for the movie's advertisement.

I was told they put that sign up just to throw off Latrobe Topix bloggers/readers. :)

Listen. Target is not going in there. I have great intel into this. I am being told from credible sources that the main idea was at first to build a mini mall there at the drive-in. Now the idea is supposedly to put in a Timmy Horton's coffee house, based out of Canada. The other place being discussed is Waffle House. There ya go.

I'm tellin ya, if that place changes in any way, beyond a coat of paint, I'm gonna uproot my bank-owned house, and "super glue" it to that property, and never leave that spot until the hi-way drive-in becomes a state landmark!

My interests are few and far between (regarding issues outside of my own yard), and the drive-in is a special, "local" place that I'd stand on my soapbox for.

We need a good coffee place. Cafe Bean, RT 30, doesn't use quality beans (dark, oily, aromatic), and all its "bean varieties" taste the same (because they are the same bean!)

Cafe Bean is a GREAT effort in interior design, but for the "city" prices of coffee drinks, I expect "city" taste, too.

You better get a big soapbox to stand on. I bet the neighbors of 5th ward will be happy. Some probably would even help you move. Beware unity township supervisors, "5th ward resident is coming, hide your hummers!!!!!!"

Heres another idea. You said you would stand on a soapbox. Well why dont you put wheels on that specific soapbox,convert it to diesel,build a race track and hold deisel soapbox derbies. You could then challenge Rick Stadler and his hummers.lol

Today I personally spoke to Lee, the owner, and he said it's all lies, he is not selling to anyone.

My old Mercedes diesel would beat those new Mercedes HUMMERS every time. It would just take me 10-miles to get up to speed. My old car is meant for cruising...those HUMMERS are top heavy, one sharp turn and Stadler would fall over.

Good Keep the BIG stores out there on the HIGHWAY , Town of LATROBE Sure dont need any stores in LATROBE TOWN AREA . i mean who wants all those CARS and PEOPLE on the STREETS and SIDEWALKS in LATROBE anyway in the FIRST PLACE , it that store came in town then the peeps at 333 main street would have to set up shop somewhere else . who needs kmart , walmart, target , etc. those SHOPS in TOWN that are ALL CLOSED is all LATROBE NEEDS
