When Everyone is Screaming Big, Let’s Think Small

small_cars2.jpgWhat does a “Super” store actually mean? What is a SuperK or in Bellevue’s case, a SuperTarget?

Is it just bigger? Do they carry bananas?

Rumors circulating the blogosphere say the Factoria target will be not only be plowing down Grazie to make way for the new Marketplace @ Factoria development, but it will be stealing more square footage for a new “Super” title.  We’ll watch out for confirmations and be sure to let you know the deets.

I have never been to a SuperTarget, but the idea screams Wal-Mart to me, which is not everyone’s favorite idea for a neighbor. So, in the theme of re-thinking supersized retail, let’s take a look at Eastside homes new on the market this week that fall on the opposite side of super—less than 1,000 square feet to be specific. Perfect for a twosome or a lonesome.

13301 SE 79th Pl, Newcastle – $276,000
844 sqft., 1 bed, 1 bath

5722 SE 122nd Pl #235, Bellevue – $225,000
784 sqft., 2 bed, 1 bath

973 NE Ingram St #202, Issaquah – $199,950
933 sqft., 1 bed, 1 bath

    A SuperTarget is a Target that includes a full grocery store (many don’t) …

    Interesting. I wonder what this means for the rundown Safeway and QFC next door? I imagine the new store will be nice and anything above average will kick the current Factoria grocery stores out of the water.

    I’d love to see the Factoria Sq Mall expansion get going. It seems to have been, “almost” started for MONTHS now.

    LOL! I thought it’s about small cars. Btw, what car is that on the photo?
