Other shopping centers prosper as Oak Hollow Mall struggles : News-Record.com : Greensboro & the Triad's most trusted source for local news and analysis (http://www.news-record.com/content/2011/02/11/article/other_shopping_centers_prosper_as_oak_hollow_mall_ struggles - broken link)
That article was ridiculous; apples to oranges. High Point Mall is not a mall, it is just another strip mall and has less than 10 tennants, not including outparcels. The article doesn't tell you HPM used to be a mall but suffered the same fate as OH mall; couldn't attract & keep tennants. As for OH a big chunk of its failure is due to it being 15yrs too late when it opened for business.

There is a simple fix for that: Leave.
High end stores around here tend to be independently owned, small in scale, and not located in malls. I understand, you're a name dropper, heaven forbid if you were to have to explain to your friends where you bought your merchandise. No imagination.

I have to myself for this- for the sake of accuracy Greensboro has 2 outdoor shopping areas; Friendly- the obvious one, & Jefferson Place on New Garden Rd.

Using that argument it makes the lack of shopping in the triad even more pathetic. Triad area has over 1.6 million people.

Not quite. Greensboro has around 260k & Winston around 240k, and High Point around 100k. Those are the cities that make up the triad. Where is the other million?

Triad population up 12% in decade | The Business Journal
I think viper was refering to the triad region for the 1.6 million. you're stats are low though. i still think that the post is accurate in that there is a large number of people in the triad and malls such as the shops at friendly tend to be on the upper end. i would hardly call the shops at friendly center backwoods north carolina. smh

You should have seen people bagging on Greensboro on the Maryland sports message board for the ACC tournament. Saying Greensboro was only Waffle Houses and Applebees, LMAO.

People in Maryland are in their own little world at times.
