I was walking by the public house on my walk home from work, and saw a sign where the Chick-fil-A was supposed to be that said it was going to be a bank. I can’t tell if that was a joke or not though. Have you heard anything about this? I haven’t seen anything since you posted about it last November so I’m wondering if it did end up becoming a bank.”
