Development - Portland business leaders bank on a major makeover to draw free-spending shoppers

Good article, its good to see so much push behind Portland's leaders to coordinate efforts to really push for downtown retailing and a mentality to compete with the local suburban malls. I hope the effort pays off with renewed growth.

"We're a bit embarrassed when we take relatives to our retail core," she said. "We hope it can get some momentum going."

I thought that quote was funny, I think Portland's retail isn't bad, but it does show that residents aren't satisfied and want more.
