I wouldn't exactly say they took it away. That location has been empty for a year and a half at least.

I liked Arbys, but Jimmy Johns is mighty good too. And that building was vacant forever as well.

Does anybody think there is a realistic chance that one of the two malls will close? I can't see both of them closing, but if I had to pick between the two of which one is more likely to close, I'd say the Citidal. The Chapel Hills Mall is in an area close to neigborhoods that are still gaining population, while there are a lot of tracts closer to the Citidal that are actually losing population.

Yea, if anything, the Citadel will close first. Seems like everything in this city is slowly migrating north and east.

The Citadel is a lot busier than Chapel Hills, imho.

Perhaps with people (although I doubt it), but I think there is more money going into Chapel Hills (hence, Macys closed at Citadel).

Wow, who could follow all the issues with those malls?

I can say that Castle Rock seems to make more sense, for affluent persons. You're closer to the airport, the city, and nicer amenities. I really like CS but am not certain that there is a long term future here. Especially if the defense budget gets whacked.

Keep going north to Highlands Ranch if you got money, that's where you should be.

Amanda's Fonda is expanding to the vacant Village Inn building next to Wendy's on N Accademy, so there's another empty building going away!

It is a sign of the times. Malls aren't capturing the same share of the shopping demographic given the internet revolution. Chapel Hills was busy and expanded rapidly in the mid-80's. Its growth was driven by the Briargate subdivision which was relentlessly expanding. I have many memories of this place as a kid and trust me in its prime, it looked and felt cutting edge.

I can't believe Wendy's bought the place and is thinking of going franchise with it. They have good food, but it's nothing spectacular enough to warrant that kind of response lol
