When you say "there" do you mean Northgate or Southpoint?

Southpoint - shoot, they just built an HHGregg right down the street, and all of sorts of stuff is opening up there. There's still a lot of housing going in as well. It'll be fine...

To be fair, we've lived here over two years now, and it's ALWAYS been super quiet on weeknights, especially if you're used to how packed it gets on the weekend.

Not to say the economy's not having an effect here... I'm just saying weeknights were strikingly quiet even before the economy went south.
We've noticed the same. It's especially quite on school nights. Families have sports and school events. Those without kids are hanging at the hip eatteries and such.

Living so close I never go to the mall on the weekend either (I'd rather have a root canal w/ out novacaine!) The week nights are bliss. Hubby puts the kids to bed and I'm in and out in no time!! And it doesn't cost me a trip to the food court for cranky kids.

I kind of question the business decisions involved in that one. I'm not familiar with HHGregg, but isn't it basically like another Best Buy, which is three minutes away and never really that crowded?

I have been there at 10 o'clock in the morning on a Saturday and it is fairly quiet. So for those of you who can only go to the mall at the weekend first thing in the morning is a good option.

They said it affects the city getting tax money, but will not affect the stores and shoppers.
