New restaurants opening every week. That's fine. I just wish there was more variety instead of burgers and Tex-Mex. Although I would make an exception if the wonderful Butcher Shop and Bakery in Longview wanted to open a second location here.

What would you like to see come to Tyler that is NOT a restaurant? Personally my choices would be:

. Pottery Barn
. Home Goods
. Williams-Sonoma
. Apple Retail Store
. Container Store
. Crate and Barrel
. Costco
. Trader Joe's
. Rooms To Go
. Indoor Gun Range

Costco stores are only located in Major metro's. All around, DFW, Austin, Houston, San Antonio.

Never been impressed with the Butcher Shop, tried with friends in Longview about four are five times, but seem to do really well in Longview.

A new burger place very similiar to Butcher Shop being built across University Dr, from U. T. Tyler, I enjoyed the place in Houston 1960 Area. Someone probably knows the name.

We've got an indoor gun range on the West Loop.

Container Store, all around Major Metros only

Best I can tell, same for Pottery Barn

Trader Joe's same

Rooms to Go, I contacted them in the last year, no response.

Harker-Heights and Midland are the locations outside of major metro, maybe a "fair shot" at one of those

Furniture row is really not like R to G, but Tyler has the only one of those in Texas, as far as I can determine. But I really like Rooms to Go.

Create and Barrel same

Same for Williams-Sonoma

Trader Joe's the same, Tyler isn't large enough for these. We do have a few places that only major metro's have, but that is not for tonight, bedtime, lol

The indoor gun range closed up a year or so ago, just so you know, and I personally would like to see one open back up again.

Like the OP, I enjoy most of those stores myself as well, and I'd like to see one or more of them open up. Looks like lots of retail is still pouring into Cumberland Park on S Broadway so maybe we'll get some interesting stores!

I do like the shopping in Tyler - I think it's very good considering the size of the small city.

I would like to see some entertainment venue come into town like a water park or something the youth can go to. I think that would compliment the new Convention Center that is planned and the renovated Harvey Convention Center.

We have a indoor water park. Harvey Hall renovation won't happen for years to come. Where is the money going to come from. The city of Tyler is already struggling with money. If anything it's a pipe dream to me.

There is also a smallish water park (with a larger playground area around it) in South Tyler over by the new police station.

Grants which are required to be used for specific purposes will be used so the City would not foot the entire bill. That's where the misconception people get when they see the city spending money. They automatically think the city is funding the repair costs yet they do not realize much of that money comes from grants that can only be used for that purpose. Yes you're right it will not happen for a few years due to the economy however neither will the hotel convention center on the south end of town happen real soon. Remember that is a partnership between the city and a private developer.
