I was in Macy's yesterday and there were quite a few people speaking French. I spoke to a woman who said all of her friends drive down from Canada to do their shopping because it is such a great deal. She mentioned there are quite a few buses that come from Canada just to shop for the day.

I'm not surprised and I'm wondering if it will pick up once this phase is completed.

I wonder if on August 2nd, when they do the "grand rebranding," if they will release some more impressive tenants. I have been thoroughly underwhelmed by all the new leases. At least they are doing some repainting in the old section of the mall. The green paint was always disgusting. Additionally, I hope they clean up the underground parking; it looks like the mall will collapse in soon.

Another tenant just left Shoppingtown . I can't help but think that this new mall is just simply consolidating the current retail picture in the area and not really adding stores.

I haven't seen any stores that I'm excited about. I do the majority of my shopping online anyway. But I am looking forward to Melting Pot, the Toby Keith place, the go-kart place, and the comedy club... those will all be places I will be going to. Now if they were to open a Crate and Barrel, I would be in that mall alot more often

Large investment in a mall at this time is like investing in the telegraph or a harness company.

True...... I'm honestly more interested in what may occur in the Inner Harbor.
