It may have been the worst kept secret in town. Festival Foods is buying two Quillin's stores and plans to tear one of them down. The Quillin's and Skogen families are finally confirming what has been rumored for months. The Quillin's in the Village and Quillin's Shelby location are being purchased by the Skogens. The Village store will be torn down and replaced by a new Festival. The Shelby location will stay open until the new Festival is built, and then will be closed. The sale leaves La Crosse without a Quillin's. Quillin's stores remain on French Island and in La Crescent, Decorah, Waukon and Caledonia.
The first of two listening sessions today for new, animal-free plans for La Crosse's Myrick hixon Eco Park.
Meanwhile, the last remaining animals from the old zoo at the park are getting settled in at their new digs. Patience and Prudence, the pair of 23 year-old black bears who had called the old Myrick Park zoo, "home." Shipped out about a week and a half ago to the Crooked Hollow zoo in Manchester, Iowa.
Pam Sellner owns the private zoo. She says Patience and Prudence are doing well. A little cantankerous when they first arrived because they had to brought out of a hibernating slumber. But have gone back to sleep since then.
La Crosse gave the bears to the zoo. City park and rec boss, Steve Carlyon says it took months to find a home for them.
