Gateway Mall...

Postby nebrwesleyan » Sun Sep 26, 2004 11:40 am

This will be great for Lincoln. However, the last line is what made me mad. "I'd rather have (customers) shop there than drive off to Kansas City or go online," People from Lincoln shouldn't be going to KC, they should be coming to the big "O" What is she thinking? Anyway, here is the story...

Hmm, while that may very well be some of that "Nebraska outside of Omaha bias" everyone keeps clamoring about, you can't deny that KC is a regional shopping hub that offers retail options that aren't available in Omaha.

Even after Jordan Creek, I still find myself going or wanting to go to Minneapolis, Chicago or KC to find things that aren't available here.

That sounds like one heck of a mall makeover. $45 million is no joke, you could even build a no-frills lifestyle center for that cost!

There's a bigger different between KC and Omaha.

When Lincolnites come here to shop at stores they don't have (and there are plenty of them)... they're more likely to buy from stores they DO have.

So of course the last thing these people are going to want to acknowledge is shopping in Omaha.

Westfield ShoppingTown Gateway Mall? This sounds like Nebraska Flatwater Metroplex. I'm not a mall person anyway but the times I was there it did seem like it was going in the way of Southroads.

Yeah. I was surprised to see that people would drive to KC before Omaha. Lots of people make the trip to Omaha that live in Lincoln. I know Lincoln gets alot of rural shoppers. My Auburn family will go to SouthPointe or Mall of the Bluffs because they think Omaha malls are to crowded. But if they don't have it anywhere else they will give in and come here.

Its named such because of the Australian company which bought Gateway Mall. Apparently they name all their malls "Westfield Shoppingtown". The "Gateway" was retained to keep the perception that its still your neighborhood friendly Gateway Mall.

How long has it been since you have been to Gateway? IT is Nothing like Southroads. Have you been there since you they enclosed the outside portion? That is the point where they turned the corner IMO. They are a good mall, and I enjoy it as much as any Omaha mall. End up in both since I live between the two. Better make the trip to Lincoln some time it sounds like to me.

I went last year when visting family. I also went to that South Point one too. Gateway was much less active compared to the new mall hence the Southroads comparison. Does Omaha still have a Cookie Company? I know we did at Crossroads, but not anymore. Gateway has one though.

They are being torn down but only after their new location is finished and they move but are still located at the mall. Move should take place sometime in the spring / summer. Sorry, I do not know exactly where the new location is on mall property but I am guessing it is already started so it should not be hard to spot.
For the record  NEBUGEATER does not equal BUGEATER    !!!!!!!

I wish the food court still had an Arby's. Maybe they could put in a Burger King or a Raising Cane's in there?
