The Mall is not losing stores as a result of Shoppes at River crossing, Most of the stores that have left the malls was in financial crisis and to close some of there store to stay afloat. the same that is happening across the country so don't act like Macon is the only city that is experiencing such.

Actually, it is. The stores are moving from the mall to the Shoppes at River Crossing. Greenville isn't experiencing this. Haywood Mall has three empty retail spaces out of over 150.

My questions to you is how many malls are in Greenville? Does Greenville have duplicate stores as the the ones located at the Haywood mall?

No, we don't and that's why they're not closing. We actually planned ahead here instead of building shopping centers just for the heck of it. However, there are stores like Hollister and American Eagle that exist in Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg. We do have more high-end stores than Macon does though.

Well developer are not building stores solely on Macon, Macon services as a economic hub for 22 MGA counties with a pop over 700,000. That why retail is booming in Macon. So what kind of high stores you have that Macon doesn't? just Curious

I wonder if Census says otherwise: http://recenter.tamu.edu/Data/popm/pm4680.htm Greenville's metro area is this: http://recenter.tamu.edu/Data/popm/pm3160.htm We had a bigger MSA population 30+ years ago than Macon has now.

JEALOUS?

What an absolute joke! Why in the world would someone who lives in a place with retail you've never heard of be jealous of little 'ole Macon?

Look kid, you may think that all of us have it in for Macon - but why do you think that is? It is a reaction to you - not where you live.

I actually LOVE this State, and I want all of our cities to do well.

You love where you live, and are proud of it. I think that is fantastic.

BUT - proping up your area with half-truths, lies and wishful thinking doesn't mesh with reality.

Get a clue. Macon is struggling, moreso than other comparable areas. I would think that the only other metro in the State doing worse is Albany.
