UNT to move ahead with plan to purchase Sack N Save

Recommended Posts


The University of North Texas can now move forward with purchasing the Sack N Save building at 1500 Interstate 35E.

The UNT Board of Regents voted unanimously for the chancellor or a designee to move forward with buying the property for $6.25 million.

The property was valued $2,155,200 by the Denton Central Appraisal District last year.

In September, the board authorized the chancellor or a designee to work on an agreement to buy the property, and use eminent domain if a deal could not be reached.

Why would we pay 3x the property value?? That could have gone toward the convention center to make the deal palatable for everyone.

Taxable value and market value are typically different. As an example a house across the street from me just sold for nearly $150k more than it's taxable value - and while I don't know the ins and outs of commercial real estate, Id say you probably have to pay value of property PLUS earning potential of that property factored in over a number of years since the property owner won't be able to collect those rents once it is sold.

I need to drive up to Denton this weekend and purchase one last bottle of expired malt liquor self bagged in musty plastic.

RIP Sack N Save. I hardly knew ye...Mostly because the only time I ever set foot in you was when I'd run out of beer, really didn't need more, but your welcoming fluorescent lights called me like a siren in the night to get more.

Or the cockroaches on the floor doing their weekly shopping.

They're doing the shopping for the ingredients at Pancho's buffet, the only restaurant where I've seen TWO live roaches scurry across my plate, to which the lady working there said, "Just brush them away."

      This is the kind of hor$hit WB and the AD Dept has to deal with in regards to the Denton Record Chronicle.
      Our softball team and it’s new coach Rodney DeLong traveled last Friday to College Station and kicked ass.  They went  4-1 overall in the Aggie Classic that included a run-rule curb stomping Saturday of the host and 20th ranked A&M team 10-2, our first win over a ranked team in three seasons. 
      We won 9-0 over UNC and won 8-7 in an extra inning marathon (12) over Cal Baptist Friday evening.  We then run ruled A&M Saturday afternoon then lost by 1 in extra innings (9) Saturday evening to Cal Baptist.
      Then we run ruled Northern Colorado 8-2 Sunday morning.  
      So what do the morons at the DRC put accross the top of the sports page this morning?

      They print a headline teaser across the top of the sports page that UNT Softball “lose in tourneys”.
      No DUMBASSES!!!  North Texas WINS in tourneys!  North Texas outscored their opponents 40-17.  North Texas won Sunday’s game and went 4-1 in the tournament and kicked the crap out of the ranked team.
      And yeah, I know it’s the printed version and not online.  Despite what you may think or say a lot of potential donors/season ticket holders/supporters of NT Athletics still read the print paper.....but that’s completely beside the point here.  It’s the mindset and the negative attitude this paper has always had and always will as long as the Patterson (Ok State Alumni) family runs it.
      North Texas spends a lot of money advertising in that POS rag.  North Texas is Denton’s largest employer.  You’d think the days of the constant little negative jabs and back stabbing would be over?  It’s not. 
      Effing pisses me off man!!!
