Another Kewpee bites the dust.[edit]

Anyone know why the Kewpee at 6525 S Pennsylvania Ave, Lansing, MI was sold? Would like to cite the information in the article.

According to the Lansing Business Monthly, it was consolidated -- no other reason given. Spshu (talk) 19:38, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Former Locations[edit]

Do we need to have list of former locations? Spshu (talk) 19:41, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I really wouldn't think so, as there's not enough historical data to list each and every past location. I believe the article says there were more than 400 or so locations, and listing them all would not be appropriate per WP:NOT. Good idea though. §hep¡Talk to me! 19:16, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
