What Are They Building Next to Wal-Mart on Garfield in Loveland?
Loveland keeps on growing northward. Sure, that King Soopers doesn’t look like it’s going to happen, but what is that they’re building just south of there by Wal-Mart?
I drive past the Wal-Mart on Garfield (Highway 287) on my way to and from work each day. For about a month now, something’s been going up right at the corner of 65th Street and Garfield. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be huge, so it’s not going to be a gas station or a bank. I was curious, so I called up Beacon Construction, the team that’s doing the construction, and got the dirt.
It’s going to be a new Cellular Plus/Verizon Wireless. Currently, in Loveland, there is the sole Verizon store out near Centerra. There is a Verizon/Celluar Plus location off of Eisenhower as well. I gave those folks a call and they confirmed that they will stay open and this one at 65th will be a second location. Technically, this will be a Cellar Plus- specializing in Verizon. So, you could say Loveland will have three DIFFERENT Verizon stores.
This Cellular Plus will be right by BioLife- a plasma donation center. I see a scenario, where a car drives up, two people get out. One person goes to BioLife, the other into Verizon. About an hour later, they both come out; one with a new phone, the other with some cash in their pocket.
I guess I’m indifferent. Neither excited nor upset. A Verizon place. OK. Nothing earth-shattering, carry on. But hey, now you know! Look for store to open by the end of October!
Curiosity remains, however, on what they might be putting at 57th and Garfield!
