A new BJ's Wholesale Club is taking shape in Lansing, NY, near the location of the Target and YMCA. The construction began last spring after months of negotiations with the town of Lansing. The Cornell Daily Sun has the backstory.
This makes Ithaca's Food Web wonder when the food and grocery market here in Tompkins County and Ithaca will experience a glut. Just off the top of my head, we have:
Ithaca Farmers Market, plus other farm markets
Farm stands, including Early Bird Farm, BB Farm, Eddydale, and many others.
And, the future Neighborhood Pride store in Fall Creek
And, the Walmart Superstore and Target grocery section. (thanks mhaithaca!)
... all to service a county of 100,000.
