So many furniture stores in that area. Rooms toGo, Ethan Allan, Mega Furniture, Ashley Furniture and Star Furniture, oh and Lazy Boy. Too bad the Ikea isn't going up at la Catera, then it would be a furniture mecca...(oh and or a West Elm...but otherwise...)

You forgot Haverty and Bassett as well. From what I see...seems like bob mills fits in between rooms to go and haverty.

I didn't know there was a West Elm there.

I've been a voracious reader all my life, and I know that local bookstores disappearing has been going for quite a while. I used to attribute it to the high prices at the local stores. I used to frequent Bookstop somewhere over in the I-10 area... between Huebner and De Zavala... iirc... I remember being sad to see it go.

The Colonnade. I was maybe eight or nine when that place closed. It was where i bought my first chapter book. There was a great handicapped ramp to run up and down near the kids/YA section. We spent lots of time there when I was little. Seeing BN go was also very sad, although that was way after my buy a book every few weeks phase. It's a pain in the butt to go to La Cantera. The Fiesta Trails area is slowly dying and it's sad, but I attribute it to the newness of La Cantera and the assumption that people will drive up there to get things. I also think, though, that the dying bookstore may have to do with Amazon and ereaders. What we may need is more libraries. I believe District 8 (where the BN was) is District 8 and they only have two libraries, JOhn Igo and the Cody Library. Growing up Cody was the only one, Igo is within the last ten years. In Austin, there are maybe 3 libraries in my general area (although I think I strattle a city council district).
