It's no Surprise !!!

I've worked downtown for the past 12 years and have seen a many a business that had been open for decades go out of business. Old Navy originally had wanted to open downtown (like in Charleston NC)but city council opposed it. With a big recognizable store like that it creates cross traffic that can create business for the mom & pop Stores. This could help these mom & pop stores survive, but with nothing really worth shopping for downtown not to mention the parking ticket "Nazis" shelling out tickets every 5 minutes, shopping downtown for tourists or locals is not even seriously considered. With rent as high as it is and no real daytime traffic the only thing that can survive are restaurants and bars. Way to go City Council you never seem to disappoint!
