    Lane Bryant, in the Tallahassee Mall, will be closing in April 2009. We got a flier in the mail yesterday.
  2. Florida, say it ain't so! I, like Poonther, couldn't access any webpage, just an index....
  3. What are you welcoming TD for? I have it on good authority that he's been around for awhile.

    Indeed I did. Most days I wish I could go back. Bass Pro didn't open until the year before I graduated, but within that year the mall had made almost a complete turn-around. It is very good to see that the progress continued, Auburn certainly needed it. And it gives me hope that the same could hold true for Tallahassee.

    Poonther is right, that would be a huge boost to the area. You should see the folks up here with their new Cabella's, you would think it's Christmas everyday! Given the other Bass Pro Shops I've been to, it would take a significant amount of redevelopment to that store/parking lot to make it work. But, I have seen it done. The nearest area of civilization to my former college had a dying mall (Fingerlakes Mall, Auburn NY) that was single-handedly revived by the opening of Bass Pro and they made some amazing alterations to the existing structure to make it all work.

    Personally I like the lifestyle center concept as well. When I was working in Jax, one of my favorite things to do was to walk around the Town Center, even if I wasn't in a shopping mood. I could get fresh air and people-watch and I think they've designed it in such a way that the walking isn't terrible. I certainly didn't feel the need to drive from place to place. I don't think I'd feel the same way walking around an enclosed mall.

    Wendy's is gone?! There's a shocker. First Taco Bell, now Wendys. We can't even keep a fast food joint in business, how are we supposed to support three malls?

    Aww Poonther...that's a man for ya! I love milk chocolate, what's TD's saying? "It's yum in my mouth"? I can only eat dark chocolate if it's high quality, everything else is way too bitter.

    They do. TM has a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory or whatever that place is and GS has Godiva. Both of them also have a candy store in addition, so there may already be some market saturation in the candy/chocolate department.

    Agreed, if it needs to be barbeque, you would get no argument from me on that front. Could always install a fancy steakhouse, although the exterior of the building doesn't really fit...and you've got Ted's and Outback right around the corner.

    That's just the thing though, they didn't close all of their locations. There are still a bunch of them scattered throughout the eastern half of the country. I would just be interested in the logic behind which stores they closed, because there is no way our location could have been underperforming. And I'm all about adding new things, but they didn't, or haven't added any new restaurants in Tally. They took away one of the more popular barbeque places in town and left us with yet another vacant restaurant.

    I had heard that Garfield's closed, but Broadway too?! Seems odd, they were both usually bustling, but I guess the same could be said of Smokey Bones and that didn't save them.

    While I've missed out on most of this conversation, I still feel the need to speak up, though GG has already done so, to some extent. I've eaten a great many meals at both Cheesecake Factory and PF Changs and they most certainly are not expensive restaurants. It disheartens me to see FL and TD accuse either restaurant of putting on airs so-to-speak. You can have a good meal and drink at either restaurant for $15. And I've never been to either in anything much classier than my jeans and t-shirt. I was usually there book-in-hand, eating alone and the staff was nothing if not overly courteous at my having to dine alone. I've been to expensive restaurants. These don't count, they aren't pretentious or stuffy and I would be happy to see either of them grace our city with their presence. They won't, because as others have already pointed out, Tally isn't large enough. But we would certainly benefit from their presence, or that of any restaurant like them.

    Wouldn't that be nice?! Though I don't think our metro is large enough for Changs or Cheesecake, it would be nice to see some kind of redevelopment in that mall!
