Big Al Capone’s, present day.

The restaurant temporarily closed in March shortly after the state’s safer-at-home order, deciding not to continue take-out services. By June, many local restaurants had reopened, but Big Al Capone’s was not one of them.

During the shutdown, owners Annie and John Schmitz retired and put the historical property up for sale, as of Sept. 20, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. 

Restaurant’s history includes gangsters, ghosts

The building was originally built in 1846 as the Stage Coach Inn and Fuhrman Hotel and had earned a place on the State Historical Registry, according to The Reporter archives. 

The Schmitzes previously owned Schmitty’s Oar House, and after selling, bought this building — said to be one of Al Capone’s stops when traveling between northern Wisconsin and

Home Depot Has Long Dominated America’s Newest Pastime: Home Improvement Projects

It all started with a firing—a very foolish one.

In 1978, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank were executives at Handy Dan, a home improvement chain based in Southern California. Despite the business being very profitable, the pair had begun to tinker with a new idea. By lowering prices, they found, the stores’ volume shot up, making Handy Dan even more money. The executives had planned to implement that strategy systemwide, but they never got the chance. Corporate raider Sanford C. Sigoloff—who liked to call himself the “Skillful Scalpel”—took over the company, and deciding to save himself two salaries, got rid of Marcus and Blank.

That one decision probably prevented Handy Dan from becoming America’s home improvement leader. Instead, that honor would go to a place called The Home Depot.

Recruiting investment banker Ken Langone and retailer Pat Farrah, who’d run National Lumber and Supply Company, Marcus and Blank opened up

“Two additional fires have started overnight and been merged with the Glass Incident,” the agency said Monday morning.

Berkadia: 3 Numbers Signal the Future of Multifamily Real Estate

This blog post by the Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) brokerage and services outfit says to watch multifamily sales volume, rent payments made, and consumer confidence scores. They paint a somewhat promising picture.

Why it matters: The Berkadia research shows that multifamily deals comprised the largest share (40%) of CRE deals in August, reflecting that segment’s resilience, and that while investment sales activity has declined during the pandemic, “there is little data to support the narrative that we will see a trend of investors fleeing primary and coastal markets.”
