HENNEPIN – At the rate that Block E is losing tenants, news that another one has shut down is hardly surprising. But the latest Block E casualty may not have closed simply because of slow sales. According to the social media manager at the Panchero’s Mexican Grill chain, the Block E location shut its doors because it did not fit with the development plans for the complex. Block E owner Alatus would like for those plans to include a new upscale casino.

The news of the closure broke via Twitter: “The Block E area has some new development plans coming, so we could not stay. Hope to be back downtown in the future!”

Alatus has not responded to a request to comment.
