As noted in a previous post, there are certain locations throughout the region that seem to be jinxed.Â Even if the rest of the tenants in a shopping center thrive for years, there seems to be the one oddball space that is constantly changing.
Here is an update on two previously noted dead zone locations:
Fair Oaks Boulevard, just east of Watt, next to the Shell station
Previously a Baskin-Robbins, Double Rainbow, and a bevy of cell phone stores, this is now a Goodwill Xpress donation drop-off location.Â With the “Xpress” spelling, I’m waiting for the word on if they accept all kinds of donations or only cast-off Xtreme sports gear.
Free-standing building in the parking lot of the really run-down looking center on Fulton just north of Hurley
It’s being demolished. Â Consider it “dead” and not just part of the “dead zone.”
