We already have Urban Outfitters,and have had them for years. Everyone in Birmingham really wants Trader Joe's...they even have a Facebook page about TJ opening in Birmingham in various locations. We need more selections in grocery store options. I think Kroger should come back to the market, or the NC chain Harris Teeter(nice retailer).

In other news, Von Maur department store is expanding in Alabama. I wonder if we would be in line to get one. They are apparently compared to Nordstrom,so I guess it would be exciting...although I would rather Nordstroms opening here. I don't know if our market would be ready for both of them. I guess the Galleria or The Summit would be the centers fighting to get either one that might open. They are opening their 1st Southeastern location in Atlanta, with Alabama and Tennessee for expansion soon.

Maybe if Parisians at The Summit could have been replaced by Nordstroms, instead of a higher-end Belk, then Von Maur could have been in an anchor for the Galleria.

Genghis Grill is opening it's 1st location in Alabama at Hoover's Chace Lake center. They are scouting the area for future locations.

Total Wine, IMO, could do well here. The Wildwood North shopping center could be a nice center for one. It has some vacant space where a nice sized Total Wine would fit. Along with TW, an electronic store(HH Gregg or Best Buy), and a department store(JCPenney) these would be great anchors for the shopping centers. Our area has tons of space for new restaurants, stores,etc., and some locations would be great for new openings.

Kroger should come back to the market. Great locations-former Brunos on Lakeshore, former Brunos on Montgomery Hwy, former Winn Dixie in Helena.

Sure La Table is opening this fall at The Summit according to al.com. It also talks about a remaking of Saks Plaza at The Summit... any inside info?

New Stores at The Summit include Michael Kors, Vineyard Vines, and The North Face. !

After spending 35 minutes in the drive through line of the new Steak N Shake in Alabaster I can definitely say we could use a couple of more of those.

Birmingham has a ridiculous number of really good locally-owned restaurants for a city its size. I can't imagine wanting another chain here.

H&M, Zara, and American Apparel. I had really hoped when Bruno's at the summit shut down that H&M would take over. We could have done without the baby-mart.
