Yeah, it isn't going to be the reason for me to frequent the mall, but it at least gives me a reason to go all the way out there from time to time now. If I had known the J Crew was going to be that small I would have much preferred to see it at Park Plaza and hope the Promenade could lure in something larger. Oh well, nice to have them in the market.
I made it out to JCrew Thursday night. You are correct. The men's department is tiny. It took about 3 minutes to see everything in the department. Quite disappointed. I was hoping this was a reason to go to the Promenade more often. Sadly, it's not. Other than the movie theater, there still doesn't seem to be a draw to me. DSW, maybe but I can do just as well at Dillards.
I also despise that movie theater. Other than an IMAX it has nothing going for it. Old projection technology, no atmosphere of any sort, poor customer service (a projector bulb went out part way though a movie and we couldn't find anyone in the entire place to report it to... 20 minutes later someone came around and fixed it), and prices that aren't cheap enough to justify the lack of better technology or atmosphere. I would always pick the Rave over the Chenal theater given the choice, I've just gone to the Chenal one a few times due to showtimes fitting with the evening's schedule better and once for the IMAX.
