Have there been any updates to prospective future plans? Also, have they been working to clear the site, or perhaps it's too cold?

 

Thanks for any insights!

 

 

 

The last I heard, they are planning on rebuilding the store and shooting to have it open by fishing opener 2019.  We'll see if that happens or not.  I'm sure the red tape with the insurance companies is a mile long, so getting to the point or rebuilding could take some time.

Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them

I also heard that some bureaucrat has to say whether they can use the existing slab or need to make  a new one.  Don't know whether that is true or not.

I would want it checked if it were mine.

I’ve also heard it will be a precast concrete building. Newspaper said it will be bigger than it was so will need some new concrete slab

That's getting it done!! What are the odds of it being open by the fishing opener?  I believe that is the target date.

Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

Mesabi Daily reported yesterday 24 Feb 2019 that Cook was granted funds for Zup's rebuild, IRRRB approved a 

$350,000 grant to the City for development infrastructure related to the rebuild. The money will be spent on on-site water and waste water upgrades, and overall site-work. Construction is expected to begin by March or April. 

That's the latest news, it appears the credit for the article was supplied by KBJR.COM. 

This winter up here has been brutal this year not complaining just making a statement. We built a new house 12 years ago, 2x4 roof truss and 2x6 walls never really worried about snow weight prior to this year but after inspecting depth of compacted snow we decided to remove the weight. I realize the house is an inanimate object but when we  were done is was like the house gave a big sigh of relief!! Come on spring, enough of this BS. Good day to you all.

Drove by there last week and there's nothing going on.  Looks like a parking lot.

Bummer, would have been nice to see if they could get up and running before the end of fishing season.....Anyone ever been in the grocery store on 53 in Virginia, across 53 from the Holiday Station at the intersection? Guess that's where we will have to stop on our way up...…..

I’m really sad about the whole thing not only for the owners but all the good people on the west end of the lake that really depend on that store specifically.  Not to mention during our stay at the cabin for 5 weeks  (west end) we will have to travel all the way to Virginia for every food shopping trip.  I can’t imagine how much business they will lose during those peak summer weeks.  I’m hoping it’s done somehow some way shortly after 4th of July / but realize that’s probably wishful thinking at this point.

      I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?
    • ANYFISH2
      Nice to trip for the family it looks like. A round home here in central MN, the fish are very much in that phase of,    Bass- they are three phase right now, some are post spawn, some are spawning and on beds, other are still pre-spawn and staging.  Nice that most tactics can work on a single lake but each day is different.   Panfish are similar, most fish are still staging but alot of males are shallow and some beds are being swept.   Pike-have been all over the board here.  I have figures out a great system yet.   Walleye- are still preferring shiners and other minnows right now.  Leeches have not really produced well with the exception of the river bite.  Most fish still biting in less than 16ft of water.   Water temps- continue to be very lake dependent.  I have been seen 60-65 degrees on most smaller lakes and the bigger 2000 acre lakes I am seeing from 55-60 degrees main lake.

      Sounds like you got your money’s worth!   I hunted 3 afternoons in the C season is all, due to being too busy with work and projects or too tired/lazy to get up in the morning.  Didn’t take any time off work to chase with all the COVID stuff going on.  The bird I did get was one one the easiest birds I’ve ever taken on the first day of the last season.     I guess what I’m saying is you EARNED that bird and should rightfully be proud!
    • monstermoose78
      Well I hunted just about every weekend during this turkey season and some days during the week. I just could not get a jake or Tom to come and play. Until this morning I was watching a buck and two yearlings all morning they just never presented a good photo opportunity. I was calling and I hear a gobble!! O yeah I get the crossbow Set up for an easy pick up. I look to the west and see a deer looking into the woods. I look to the east and see two turkeys making a bee line to me. At 50 yards I can’t see a beard on either of them, but I pick the crossbow up and get ready. The first turkey has a little beard at 20 yards I can see it. They go out sight and he comes up next to the blind and heads out 3-4 yards. That tiny beard looks like 15 inch rope at this point in my season and turns to give me a spine shot. Game over a full hunting season used and   Turkey 🦃 wild rice soups is cooking!!

    • KidMoe
      Looks like a great time and some big smiles! You’re gonna have the kiddos rousing early you every weekend for more time on the water!
    • KidMoe
      With that detail Borch I could spend all summer trying the different suggestions and combos! Very well done sir!    I might have to venture away from Pool 4 to try out some clearer water for night time eyes!
