When we lived in Pocatello we often drove by this abandoned strip mall. I always wondered why it was sitting there not being used. It was in a nice central location and everything. One day I finally asked Hubby if he knew. Evidently it had a bunch of asbestos and it would cost so much to clean all that out that it wasn't worth it to any business to even try. And of course they can't just knock the whole building down without cleaning it out either, so it just sits there unused. You'd think the city would want to get it taken care of so they can have a business buy the property and make the city some money.
