  1. It looks like we finally have some updates! O-Ku and Insomnia Cookies for the Plaza level and another Rick Erwin's restaurant coming also. I wonder if we'll get any retail...looks like we have the restaurant part under control. https://www.collettre.com/images/Properties/Camperdown_Flyer___04_04_19.pdf
  2. Does anyone have an idea when they will announce other retail/restaurant tenants? I thought we would have heard something by now.
  3. Did anyone notice the "proposed cinema" next to TopGolf or has this already been mentioned? https://www.theshoppingcentergroup.com/property-search/?propertyId=278862-sale
  4. The Woodhouse Day Spa coming soon https://www.woodhousespas.com/ Also, per the latest lease brochure, there is a deal pending for the old Toys R Us location. At 59,000 sq ft it must be some kind of anchor store? https://www.theshoppingcentergroup.com/property-search/?propertyId=252929-lease
  5. I went into JCrew last night and asked if they've heard what will be taking over the space once they leave. The manager said she was told Dry Goods was coming in. Dry Goods is a boutique retailer owned by department store chain Von Maur. One article i found read "Dry Goods said it will open 19 stores in 2019, giving it a total of 58 locations nationwide. The openings will see the retailer enter seven new states — Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee — and expand its footprint to 58 locations. In 2018, Dry Goods opened 12 stores." Another article said that Dry Goods are opening in areas where "Von Maur is yet to open." I wonder if they are eyeing current SEARS locations in these cities and adding Dry Goods to test the markets? https://www.chainstoreage.com/store-spaces/dry-goods-expanding-its-store-portfolio/
  6. An article from September popped up recently and when I read it , I noticed something I hadn't seen before: "Retailers have shown 'tons of interest,' but 'because of what’s happening in retail, we don’t want to take the risk of signing a lease with somebody that’s not here'. " The way I read that is they aren't interested in retail that is not currently located in Greenville. Am I reading too much into it? While I think some of the mall stores would do well downtown, I hope the retail component of this development is not just a shuffling of stores already in this market. Hoping to see something new to the market. http://www.greenvillebusinessmag.com/2018/09/05/179797/centennial-american-properties-brody-glenn-talks-about-camperdown-the-rising-star-of-downtown
  7. I know Haywood is a strong mall but it’s s little concerning to me that in the last year they’ve lost a couple of moderately high end stores, like Coach, L’Occitane, and now JCrew, and the only new store is LEGO. Will it negatively impact the possibility of landing other stores like Vineyard Vines, Sur La Table, etc in the market?
  8. J.Crew is closing at the end of the month. Apparently Simon wasn’t willing to negotiate a new lease with them. Also, a bar is opening on the corner beside the new Bath and Body Works. An alcohol license has been requested.
  9. I noticed yesterday that the temporary store occupying the old Ann Taylor spot has been relocated to the old Palmetto Moon spot. I can't imagine them making this move unless a permanent vendor has signed for the Ann Taylor location? Any news? That's a pretty big spot in a prime location. Hopefully something new like Vineyard Vines, Eddie Bauer, or Tommy Bahama and not just a relocation of an existing store. I don't know...just speculating.
  10. Panera is moving into a freestanding location out in the parking lot near Wells Fargo in the next year or so. The new location will have a drive thru. I asked one of the employees why they were moving and she said "the mall is kicking us and lens crafters out. I guess Cheesecake Factory can pay more per square foot". I asked if I heard her right and she said "you didn't hear it from me". Not necessarily 100% confidence but she obviously heard it from somewhere. She was older and said she had never even heard of Cheesecake Factory until panera got the news. Take it as you will...
  11. I heard Orvis was interested in the large space on the back corner (Laurens and Washington). When I called the Asheville location the associate said there was a rumor that Greenville would be getting a location but she wouldn't specify where. Orvis would be great there!!
  12. Why "value oriented" retail? Does that mean something like Family Dollar?
  13. You are both correct. When the two stores first closed they emptied them out and took all the furniture back to the warehouses. A liquidation company bought the all the furniture in the warehouses including brands other than Thomasville and Drexel. The liquidation company is now renting the buildings and using then to sell all the furniture. I only saw 1 piece of actual thomasville furniture in the thomasville store. The rest of it was junk. Sad.
  14. What is Babaziki Restaurant Services? The UBJ says they are at Magnolia Park with Firebirds and Bad Daddy's. It doesn't speak of Toby Keith's or Dave and Busters at all.
  15. Or maybe they are trying to create more of a lifestyle center than just retail. Even though they don't have housing I guess BCBS might bring in people who wouldn't ordinarily visit MP to shop. The whole development seems to be catering to a broader band of people. Maybe it will work. I'm still just confused...
