The state of the area's malls

16 posts in this topic

Here's a pretty good article about the state of all of the malls in the Columbia area and how they all affect/have affected each other. We've talked about all of this at some point, but we can discuss all of the pieces and all of the malls in this thread.

Yeah, I also think the writer missed an opportunity by not focusing in on attempts to jumpstart downtown's retail scene, especially with all of the condo and hotel developments in and around downtown.

He mentioned the competition between Midtown (Richland Mall) and Columbia Place, but failed to point out that VAS is also part of this struggle for retail. Taking alot of the business further up Two Notch.

I didn't know Midtown at Forest Acres (864k sq ft) was larger than Columbiana (850k sq ft), wow, now that's some density :blink:

Wow @ Richland Mall being bigger, It doesn't feel that way. That really is some density! I do think that Walmart is going to help Broad River area and Dutch Square out again

^ I hear what you're saying, but it will always be Richland Mall, Columbia Mall, and, as an aside, Sidney Park for me. I go absolutely bonkers when stuff is renamed.

The only reason I would agree with that is because people don't understand that its now called and pronounced "FIN-lay" and not "Fin-LEE." That has always irritated me. I never knew Finlay before it was Finlay, so I can't call it anything else. ;)

I grew up with it called Finlay park. I remember when they changed the name but I think I was like 6 or 7 so it's always been Finlay park to me lol

I was in Richland Mall last Friday, and that place is like a ghost town. Lenscafters and Events were the only two places open on the second floor on that side of Belk's. I don't know how they linger on the way they do.
