Denver's Alameda Square Eateries in Jeopardy

Love to stuff yourself Super Star Asian or Kings Land? Like to shop at Pacific Ocean International Market or Viet Hoa Market? Better hustle over and fill up and/or stock up. According to Jason Sheehan, who wrote about Alameda Square in this week's WESTWORD (http://westword.com/2008-07-24/news/g...), "But soon enough, it'll all be gone. After twenty years of fighting, twenty years of struggling, common sense and individuality have finally lost out. What Wal-Mart couldn't do, Brighton Corporation (out of Boise, Idaho) has done, acquiring the entire twenty-acre site in June with plans to raze it to the ground and build a brand-new $25 million shopping center with a Lowe's Home Improvement store as the anchor."

So Denverites, if you value those and other ethnic food stores in Alameda Square, time to start complaining to your elected officials to see if the done deal can be undone. And if Lowe's & Co is a reality, don't buy anything there -- EVER. If I lived/voted in Denver, I'd been on the front lines about this one.
