As a relative newcomer it amazes me that Sarasota with all it's affluence doesn't have better malls. I've been to them all and am underwhelmed. There is definitely a place for a well-placed mall with good old-fashioned department stores along with smaller specialty shops. Beall's just doesn't do it for me.

Sarasota deserves a Nordstrom's.

They will hopefully begin construction of the mega-mall next year, at the intersection of University Pkwy and I-75. There will be a Nordstorm's and Neiman-Marcus there.

The area around University Parkway seems to be really picking up. While a couple restaurants did close, several more have just opened up or are about to along with new stores and busineses. We already have a "Total Wine" and will soon have "World of Beer." lol This article was just in the paper this week about it:

Retail, restaurants move in along University Parkway in Sarasota | HeraldTribune.com | Sarasota Florida | Southwest Florida's Information Leader

The Benderson mega-mall that was scheduled to be built is "on hold" for now due to the economy and so many of the big anchors that were coming in cutting back on their stores. When it does get built, it will be totally awesome.
