Re: JC Penny's

I've never shopped that mall, I used to call on the HyVee when I rep'd. Grocery store was always busy and you're right, Gordman's seemed to be busier than Penney's. But it's 30 minutes max to Westroads, so I would expect they'd see a bump in traffic!

The other part of the rumor is that they are going to remodel the old Gordmans, ConAgra building next door & move the store into that. Other rumor is Kroger owns land across the street from the Irvington Walmart & they are building there. Who knows?!!!

Re: Westroads Development

With our store, the moves were made when the lease expired & then the owners signed a new one for the new location. We've been lucky that all of the spaces have been good in size and with one exception, good exposure and location. The mall usually waits until leases are up before they move store...

Re: Westroads Development

When we had a store at Mall of the Bluffs, they did give an allowance for remodel but there were trade offs, like a multi-year lease. That was back when GGP still owned it & the mall was in decline. Westroads doesn't do any of that as far as I know. They did do plumbing & electrical for H&am...
