Point out where I bashed anything! I was deeply troubled by the number of vacancies at what is suppose to be San antonio's premier mall. That doesn't bode well for anyone.

Like you need therapy? Or are you exaggerating a bit? I live three miles from there and we frequent the place...still seems like they are a cash machine to me.

Hallmark doesn't fit in there. Same goes for other stores that closed. Kiehl's is finally opening up a shop in La Cantera. Would like to see a Molton Brown too. A Rag and Bone and Moods of Norway would be nice also.

Plenty of retailers around the country are closing unproductive mall stores, as more and more retail business moves online. It's a trend right now.

I don't know that closed stores says as much about the health of La Cantera as it does about the health of the chains that are closing stores.

This thread is too funny. Anyone that understands retail knows that this property is in the top 10% of all major retail centers in the country with extremely high sales per square foot. It is one of the top few centers in Texas. Several tenants are being replaced (intentionally not renewed), moved and renovated, which is a sign of a high performing property. The sky must be falling!

No guys, SMUboy was so distraught at the fact that Brooks Brothers looked closed that he jumped in his car, drove to his Alamo Heights home and immediately raced to his computer to see what was going on.

Actually I was still there when I made the original post. It's still very distressing to see four or five store in a row closed up. It reminds me quite a bit of willow bend in Plano. Opened super high end with a tenant list far superior than anything in San Antonio and had to make quite a few adjustments when the shoppers didn't appear and that is in the wealthiest county in Texas.

Yes I'm sure signing a lease with primarily purple has pushed them into the upper echelons of sales per sq foot, look out south coast plaza, shops at bal harbor and natick collection, la Cantera is coming for your sales crown.
