They prefer to attack weaker, poorer neighborhoods with crap like this, such as the Eastside.

How about none of this crap in my city considering most pawnshops are scams. I used to work at one.

Now if we can only stop the Suburban Ave pawnshop from opening. Call or email Ms Lantry's office. Ward 7 is her ward.

And since when is W 7th in Highland??

Champps is not in Highland. That's Homecroft - W 7th Street.

Highland Park is bounded by I-35E to the east, Mississippi River to the south and west, and Randolph Avenue to the north.

Remember when going to pawn shops used to be an embarrassment? Now they go up like convenient stores. And have flashy tv ads.

Thank you for my morning laugh about nit-picking of what is Highland and what are its boundaries, etc.,etc., etc.
First of all, lower W 7th/Homecroft part of St. Paul is in what is defined as Highland, just as the Highwood area is part of the East Side. Get it????

Next, the so called boundaries. Randolph on the north, the river on the west and south and to 35E on the east to where it meets the river.

That's it. Read my lips.

Oh,and for verification, this is the legal grid map for the District Council.

Thanks to all for for a humorous beginning to my day. Much appreciated.
And one final comment. That Nedved's location is lousy for any retail business because of the way 7th was reconfigured years ago.

Billy is correct.

That location is within the boundries of the Highland Park District of the city's district council system.

You can find a map of the district councils on the city's website here: http://www.ci.stpaul.mn.us/index.aspx...

I'd take a pawn shop over a dollar store. If you think the margin is high for pawn brokers check the margin on those $1 items. The only reason those stores exist is so manufacturers don't have to pay to have thier junk hauled away - people will actually pay to take it for them. Weird.

The approval for the east side location should be re-tracted then for the same reason, we who live in this area are sick of nothing but pawn shops, thrift stores, check cashing, ENOUGH, if not good enough for highland to make an exception to the zoning rules then they should not make an exception for suburban ave PERIOD
