Has anyone heard about a new department store (like Mirabs) opening in the location of the old hardware store across from the airport in San Pedro? Fact or fiction?

As far as I know it's a casino.

I heard the casino did not get approval and that it will be a department store.

Looked in the doors today and it does look like some retail racking is in place. They were advertising earlier in the year for 200 positions to be filled for a casino, not sure what happened there. That was long after construction started so if things have changed I'm suprised. Wrong time of year to open a department store, it should have been open by now not in January.

From the "banana peel".............

I also heard it is going to be a casino, then a supermarket and now a dept. store.

The false windows placed on top would tend to convince the idea of a dept. store. Would be nice if the prices are reasonable as we know they won't be cheap.

Do you know if Royal Caribbean got a casino permit? We had heard they did not because they were given one at the old Harmouche. Wonder if the status has changed.

Looks like it is a department store (now, on Monday that might change again.)

I saw an Real Estate ad for the Royal Palm Hotel which included land for an already approved Casino. Any one know anything about this?

The palace casino is closing and the equipment is going to Coconuts Hotel where they will be operating a casino room in the front of the hotel (next to the lobby).

I only know that some of the equipment from the palace was being purchased by Coconuts (and when I was there last weekend the work on the room where the machines are going was being completed); I don't know to what extent they are planning on going with it.
