Scalise real estate takes care of the property. They would know It's terrible they kick out a paying store when there are a lot of empty spaces where the old action hardware used to be.

I would imagine that it is a store that Shop 'n Save would be competition for. The fact that they are breaking the lease and kicking out a tenant that has been there 5 years on short notice makes me think it is going to be a big national chain type store. I think it's messed up but if nothing else I hope whatever is moving in there brings other stores along with it so that half the shopping center isn't empty.

This thread isn't clear. Is Shop n' Save no longer in Latrobe 30 plaza?

Why kick out Shop n' Save when the empty space from Action Hardware is still available?

Please clarify...

I drove through that part of Route 30 today, and saw the new CVS.

-----With just a tad of historical stewardship, and a half-brained architect that CVS could have gone in on that corner lot, and the old Drive-In could have stayed.

Leases generally aren't that easily broken. I suspect that there's a lot more to the story.

So is everyone talking about Shop n' Save or another store? It's a shame if Shop n' Save is leaving Lawson Heights. It was a nice, large grocery store with lower prices than Giant Eagle. And, patronizing any locally owned business is better than patronizing Wal-Mart.

Offhand, I'd be willing to bet that Morellas was basically put out of business by the Super Walmart across the street, rather than being forced out by anyone. It would be hard to believe that another supermarket would be going in there just to face the same competition, but stranger things have happened.

A lot more to the story than what was reported, Otherwise the new store would of went into one of the empty buildings.

In the article it only talked about the fan store doing well.

Here's the article on the front page of today's Bulletin:

http://webmedia.newseum.org/newseum-multimedi...

The property owner is won't extend the lease, which isn't the same as breaking the lease. It could be as simple as the current lease being up, the owners want to raise the rates, and the current lease holders didn't want to budge.

If you can find a new tenant willing to pay you more, you do so. Sounds like Business 101. That space is both the largest and the anchor of the shopping center, so it's not that surprising that someone may have had no interest in any of the other vacancies.

Well, the owner of the shopping center did the same thing to Action Hardware, not adjusting the lease to accommodate its newer needs, which wasa shorter-term lease.

Once Action, learned that LOWE'S was going in, it wanted to commit to only a year at a time, to ensure that it could maintain its business against LOWE'S and the Latrobe 30 owner wouldn't accommodate that need:

-----So, Action's old space has sat empty since spring 2004

-----It seems to me that business 101 is a course that the current owner of Latrobe 30 never took.

It seems that Scalise, being a hard ass, is failing at stonewalling its tenants.

I was told CVS only bought those 2 lots some other company bought the drive in and wanted to build a shopping complex. CVA didn't but the drive in.If you look they are no where near the old drive in.From what I understand the drive in was in need of repairs. I know I went to the drive in with my grand children &it was bad. Concession stand bathrooms terrible.It did need a lot of repairs but....It all comes down to the owner. Not who bought it but why they sold it...

The article says the lease is being terminated. It doesn't say it's not being renewed. Soon enough word will get out about what is moving in. Hopefully it brings more stores with it.

An asphalt drive, and an updated concession stand (although, the old one was clean, and had that 1950s look to it, since everything was roughly still from that era), would not have been an expensive upgrade.

What is sad that rickety road an all, old wooden bathroom stalls that locked with a little loop and hook, people loved the Drive-In, and the Flea Market and that fact that Latrobe had those attractions/events.

The Drive-In and Flea Market enhanced Latrobe's lifestyle.

A new shopping complex just feeds mass consumerism, takes business away from already existing business, and drains people's incomes, teaches people to continue to spend, spend, spend.
