What did you hear today? 

Building on East College Drive

Well we've had tons of rumors about the building going on next to Casey's on East College Drive and found out that many of them are not true; at least for now.    1000 Degree Pizza and Little Caesars Pizza rumors were the most prevalent but at this time those appear to be just that, rumors.    We were able to confirm that the building going up will have space for 3 businesses and so far we have confirmed that Mike Leary with Edward Jones will occupy one of the spaces in that building.   Mike Leary is currently located at 200 East College Drive and looking forward to the moving into their new location.  We will continue to search for more information on the other two tenants as we are able to.



I heard Sears Hometown Store is leaving the Market Street Mall.    Is that true?
It is TRUE!   We spoke with Eric Novosad at Sears and he informed that Sears Hometown Store is moving into the former NAPA location on East Main just South of HyVee.  Eric, a local MHS Graduate,  recently purchased Sears and plans on being open in the new location on Monday March 6th.   Look for some great moving sales in the coming future. would like to congratulate Eric and his team on the progress in Marshall.

I heard Midwest Vision Center is moving from the Mall.   Is that true?
Yes it is true.   Midwest Vision Centers in the Market Street Mall will be closed Friday January 20th and relocating to their new home in the former Taco DelMar location on East College Drive and will re-open in their new location on Monday January 23rd.      Midwest Vision Centers is based out of St. Cloud and has 20 locations around the area.  Store hours will be Monday - Thursday 9am - 6pm and Fridays from 9 to 5. is excited for Midwest Vision Centers and look forward to seeing them on East College Drive!

I see some building going on over by ACMC.  Is that where Thrifty White is going?

Well he have heard the same thing for many months but we have recently found out that Thrifty White is not relocating there.   GuidePoint Pharmacy will be going into the building that is going up at that location.   According to Guide Point Pharmancy's website this will be the 11th location for them.   Currently Guide Point has locations in Fulda, Redwood Falls and Edgerton in SW Minnesota.  We hope to have more details on the opening for you in the next few days.
