I'm still mad about Mervyn's closing and The Room Store opening. I loved that Mervyn's.
Foley's fashion sense was very provincial compared to Macy's. JC Penney is struggling these days but Macy's is still successful in the industry. Macy's has better quality products than the junk sold in JC Penney, Sears, and Kohl's.

How could you be mad about Mervyn's closing when the entire company went bankrupt?

Also it is in an affluent area. Nordstrom had to open a store in The Woodlands because the 50-mile drive to The Galleria was time-consuming and many customers hailed from the north side.

Back home we have Sugarloaf Mills. I don't know how I just realized that Katy Mills and Sugarloaf Mills are basically of the same design. I've been inside Katy Mills once. I thought it looked kind of dated. It's hard for me to believe Sugarloaf Mills was opened just 2 years later because I don't think it looks as dated despite being from practically the same time. I went to Katy Mills during the week so naturally it wasn't going to be too busy but I still felt like it should have been a little busier.

Which happen to be considered by real estate folks as the top 3 malls in the region. Then you have The Woodlands (probably benefits more from its location in Town Center than from its mall-ness), and it drops off from there.

speaking of mall....we moved to Sugar land. Have been to the local (sugar land) mall which does not have a good selection, even the Dillards is meh. Also have visited the Galleria which is to much (has everything but a real production to drive, park and locate the stores) and to far. Is there anything in between both store wise and distance wise?

The Galleria is manageable once you figure it out. For example, I like to approach from Richmond Ave and park in the lot by Nordstrom/Macy's. You avoid the crazy Westheimer traffic and lots that way, and most of the stores I shop at are in that wink.

Federated and Dillard's both went on a M&A spree. Federated bought Foley's many years ago.

Check out who owns what. Most of those mall stores are all owned buy 5 or 6 companies.
