GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — 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. WLUK-TV reports the Kmart building and a chiropractor’s office will be razed in November after asbestos is removed.
Packers’ spokesman Aaron Popkey said 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.
