Staples Mill Amtrak station? Right now you can catch a 3 min bus(rt18) to the Staples Mill Pulse BRT station to Downtown. It's a slow process but opening the BRT last year was a step in the right direction. I think that there has been some reluctance to focus mainly on the Staples Mill Amtrak station because the city is still flirting with the idea of putting money into the much-needed expansion of Main Street station.

Your observations regarding Kroger, P&G and Macy's are on the mark, but it must be mentioned that these three retail powerhouses have been playing ball with Bezos for years; although none of them are impregnable fortresses impervious to "His Almighty Will," they're adopting strategies to counter more than Amazon's disruption of traditional bricks and mortar store operations. All of American business is being inundated by a tsunami of AI, robotics, Chinese hegemony and other Asian interests that are affecting CEO discussions in every boardroom across the nation, including Richmond. Perhaps this is a too broad and far-reaching topic to be discussed at length here.
