GREEN BAY - The Green
Bay Packers will soon begin demolishing a former Kmart store and
other buildings the team owns on property west of Lambeau Field.
Building permits at
the Village of Ashwaubenon show that next week work crews will begin
tearing down the former Pomp's Tire store, a Hardee's restaurant and
several buildings left on the former Big Lots property. A news
outlet reports the Kmart building and a chiropractor's office will
be razed in November after asbestos is removed.
Aaron Popkey says it makes sense to knock them down now, so the
Packers don't have to heat the buildings through the winter. Some of
the land will be used for parking. Popkey says the franchise is
still exploring various concepts for the rest of the property.
