Sorry – I probably wrote the email too late last night. The articles I read were saying that the Wicke’s site may be razed for a cluster of restaurants to go in its location.

“ But more recent articles list that same concept being proposed for the site of the former’s Wicke’s Furniture in the Monroeville Mall area.”

Wickes' site may become a movie theater? That would be an ideal spot!

From all indications, the next use of that site has been mentioned as retail, although the total amount of space makes it somewhat unattractive for a “big box” retailer. If and when the Mon-Fayette extension ever comes to being, there is allegedly a ramp due to open down the road near Home Depot that could offer some opportunities for new development. Also, because it is adjacent to a neighborhood community, perhaps there are enough restrictions in place that makes it unattractive for a series of restaurants to share in the space. But more recent articles list that same concept being proposed for the site of the former’s Wicke’s Furniture in the Monroeville Mall area.

Does anyone know if the Showcase Cinemas North (near Wexford) are still in existence? They were nice in their heyday (and just about the only place left to see a film in the North Hills area) but last time I was there on a visit back to Pittsburgh (around 2002) they were in deplorable condition.

This was a shame when it closed. Even though I was never in there, this puts a huge void in the Monroeville area. No theaters are left in the Monroeville business district. :(
