A good move for their stock I would think. There's only so much food in the world to sell so there really only needs to be so many stores to sell it. By limiting the food supply a little more it might even boost that stock price a little higher ever. Actually if they cut out producing food altogether and sold something else like liquor it might really make those grocery stocks boom!! Fact is 'short supplies' usually drive up market prices!! Can't make a basket of eggs without breaking a few!!

It's the Mason Motors site, not "Main Motors."

I can't even begin to imagine the torture it would be trying to deal with the city of Excelsior. They would make you tear a building down if the parking lot paint was 6 inches off.

I was actually looking forward to having a store within walking of my home. But Excelsior couldn't put in a store that would compete with the local Haskell's. That is exactly what put the kabosh on this store. Haskell's wouldn't allow it. Bummer for residents. Would have been great for the town. Hopefully some other grocery store will take the place.

Excelsior has an average home value of over $400,000 and they are looking for $2 beer and $3 wine? You cannot make this stuff up. Maybe they should move to Anoka County and not lower themselves to drink Ripple.

Does it not have a crappy parking lot? Because across the Midwest its apparent Trader Joe's only signs a lease on properties with dangerous parking lots.
