Laser Tag
is opening in New Orleans East in early 2014, where Big Lots was pre-Katrina, in the old Schwegmann Plaza East shopping center on Bullard Avenue between Lake Forest Boulevard and the I-10 Service Road, next to Papa John's Pizza.

To my recollection (please comment below if you remember otherwise), this is the first youth-oriented business to open in New Orleans East since Jazzland opened in 2000.

Across the street, Walmart is opening where Lakeland Medical Center once stood.

Keith Adler of Corporate Realty, the real estate firm responsible for finding tenants for most properties in what's now referred to as Bullard Shopping Center, says there will be more complementary retailers opening around the same time.

"We're trying to do everything we can. Aside from it being my job, I feel like it's really overdue for things to be done in the East," Adler says. "Certainly Walmart is helping give things a little bit of a jumpstart over there. Once that property gets a smidge further along, I think people are really gonna start jumping in."
