Hell yes I will consider those stores I mentioned before upscale! Hello! this is Albuquerque and El Paso we are talking about!

Normally I would say some of the retailers I mentioned before that are located at Uptown would be mid-scale (like Apple Store or BCBG for example), but considering the location I would definitely deem them upscale! For example:

BCBGMaxAzria is mid-scale, but in comparision to what the area has right now...say Dress Barn located at Sunland Park Mall: BCBG = upscale.

L'Occitane en Provence > Bath & Body Works

California Pizza Kitchen > Cici's Pizza

MAC > most cosmetic lines. The fact it is a stand-alone store and not a counter inside a department store says a lot

Etc. Etc. Etc. I don't even think I need to go on!

Also, the fact that on your last example (Regency Centers) all of the spaces other than Target, Sports Authority, and PNC Bank are EMPTY should be noted! LOL! They don't have ANY retailers there much less a 99 cent store! HAHAHA!
Another retarded post, what a surprise.

Those are just examples I posted, plus as I stated the Fountains was supposed to be a higher end center, those examples and the one you put up were not.. so keep trying.

BTW, it took you how long to find that dollar store? LOL! keep trying, you are only making yourself look even worse.

Who said I didn't notice the difference between Saks and Macy's?? Seriously..who said that? You? because surely it wasn't me. LOL!
I've been to both and they are different.

Nordstrom's on the other hand is almost the same as Macy's.. just a little bit fancier that's it. Nicer clothes and more expensive, but some Nordstroms are pretty dull inside them, much like Macy's and Dillard's and such.

Saks only has stores in areas with over a million people. I don't think they would come here unless our income rises dramatically as a city.. and they add Juarez to our EP Metro population. So why they are even being mentioned on this forum, I'm not sure.

BCBGMaxAzria is not upscale, no matter how you try to spin it.

L'Occitane is not upscale either. LOL!

California Pizza Kitchen.. LOL! I've been to several.. definitely not upscale.

MAC, I'm not sure which one that is.. So I can't comment on that.

Good thing you didn't throw in Anthropologie, because then I would of really laughed at you.

Can you go on?.. sure.. you haven't proven anything yet, other than sounding a bit silly.

Uptown, on the other hand does look upscale and it only has some mid-scale to low-end stores.. but, it totally feels like an upscale place to me, at least when I visited the place. It's not like they had Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Jimmy Choo, Bloomingdale's, Gucci, Armani, Saks or anything like that.. but its nice enough to give it that fancy feel why you are there. The style of the mall has a lot to do with the upscale feel it has, not necessarily the stores.
BTW, the Hunt family out of El Paso built Uptown in ABQ, now how many upscale centers have they done besides Uptown? Since you like to talk crap about Regency... Almost as if Regency could never build an upscale mall or something. LOL!

ABQ Uptown

That is one of the dumbest things I have ever read on this forum. Normally you would call those places mid-scale, but because they are located in Uptown, they have now magically become up-scale to you. LOL! That's completely retarded!


BTW, none of the places you mentioned are up-scale.. none of them!

You asked where the 99 cent stores were in the pictures, I was answering you. I was making light of a conversation that is getting way too heated and interjecting some humor.

Uh no. I was not referring to "where they are located" as being the Uptown shopping center. I was referring to them being located in a city like ABQ which does not really have any higher end stores.

ABQ Uptown
Saks was mentioned as an example of a higher-end upscale store in comparison to Nordstrom. NordstroM.

You basically just agreed with me in the rest of your comment because we said the same thing. I also said that generally most of the stores there might be considered mid-scale, but because of their location (in a city with nearly no upscale-type stores), the mid-scale would be considered upscale.

As far as the stores you mentioned not being upscale - uhhh...I gave examples of why they would be considered upscale in the ABQ market already. Also, fo ryou to claim to know what is and isn't upscale when you don't even know what MAC is...that's funny to me.

Finally, Anthropologie is upscale for sure and the fact that you said you would have "laughed" if I would have said so is making ME laugh! Everyoen knows Anthropologie is an upscale store! You can google it and I'm sure someone has mentioned it! (Actually I just found it on Wikipedia - hmmm...read the very first sentence... Anthropologie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

You clearly do not know to much about retail business models or market characteristics. Additionally, I think that you (and maybe a handful of others) are a bit confused regarding the terms "high-end" and "upscale". High-end and upscale DO NOT MEAN "luxury". There is a clear difference between a "high-end"/"upscale" store like Anthropologie and a "luxury"/"luxury good" store like Louis Vuitton. When I say a store or brand is "upscale" that doesn't mean it is up there with the Guccis and Armanis of the world.

Yeah..."supposed to be" higher end...HA!

How long did it take me to find that? About 10 seconds. I noticed the examples you put up were from Pennsylvania, I went to Regency's site and looked up their centers in Pennsylvania...the first one I clicked on had a grocery store, but no Dollar Store, the second one I clicked on was the one I posted that (surprise, surprise) has a Dollar Store! HA!

Oh I know lets build a big stupid lake in the middle of the desert, and then make a fake water fall, and a fake this and that.. oh yeah that is so much better than a fake high end shopping mall.
