    The complete Whole Foods - Traders Joe's omni-thread

    One thing is for certain none the grocers will goat Knapps Corner, not with Aldis, D&W, and Meijer all on that corner. Whole Foods probably will go in Grandville,and Trader Joes is a toss up. H&M for sure woodland. Rivertown doesn't have the space for a retailer that large.

    I hope the reconfigure the light at that intersection the time for cars to get through that intersection is not long enough I can imagine with people entering and exiting the ramp will get alot worse.

    Hey he is the reason I got my first ever car! Very nice guy and reasonable , this was my first time purchasing a car he got me in one without credit history at the age of 20. The car was nice and ran great, was suprised bacause I was expecting the sleezy type of salesman you always hear about. Sorry to go off topic. And no I dont work for the company

    Redevelopment along 28th Street

    Well for me finding a spot seems all but impossible when im catching a movie or going to one of the restaurants nearby. It wouldnt be that bad in the summer but winter time its unpleasant. Now that Jo Anns is at Centerpointe i thought I read somewhere they were going to consolidate there stores to they location this true?

    Once B&N goes in I will not be visiting Woodland anylonger. The parking situation at the mall is horrible and looks like it will only get worse.

    The State of Downtown Grand Rapids Retail

    Anyone read on Chris's blog that River City Slims is closed? Thats a big blow to that area I visited once and was very impressed so this is suprising.

    I think a resturant would be perfect in this location Panera bread comes to mind. Whatever happened to Junior achievment is that program still active in the school system? Last I saw they had a location at Centerpointe mall.

    I think there should be another option to shop here in Grand Rapid I was at Woodland Saturday night and I have never had such a hard time finding a parking spot in my life and its like that everytime i go to this particular mall now. Who's idea was it to take away from the parking to put in the plaza between on the border and Red Robin? I never see anyone sitting there spring summer fall or winter just seems like a waste and with Barnes and Noble moving in its only gonna get worse i think people in Gr are looking for other options as far as shopping other than Woodland or Rivertown so i think a lifestyle center would work it might just take away business from the other two but a little competition is good right?

    Charlotte Off Topic

    Thanks guys well im looking for a loft similar to what I have now. I mainly was looking downtown because I was hoping to finally ditch my car since I have to drive everywhere here but I dont have to be downtown a trendy neighborhood would work just as well. To be honest id take my chances with the job market there than here in Michigan where I have been laid off for 3 months and unemployment approaching 10%.

    Redevelopment along 28th Street

    I totally agree I went to see a nice family movie a few guys were bored decided to talk loud throughout the movie so that everyone could hear when someone asked them to quiet down they proceded to swear in front of kids. Studio 28 I stuck to going there only because i grew up going there but the place really went down hill. However still sad to see a landmark like this close. I wonder how this will affect some of the other business in the area. I believe Applbees had the dinner and a move special.

    Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    [im confused to why this ramp has to be so large also Most people are going to Lansing, Chicago, Detroit anyways. It looks to me like they are spending just for a wow factor. There is no reason for a ramp this size for an airport this size.
