Another thing, anyone who shopped at that Macy's for 20 or 25 years would know that it's only been a Macy's for 13 years. It was a Jones Store.
Ah yes, an earth shattering difference in the quality of goods.

How did this thread start with them 'closing' in 2007 and just now they are actually closed/leaving. Worlds' longest going out of business sale?
It's been closed since about as long as the thread has existed, that doesn't mean their junk follows.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

There are about 7 afternoon weekday games a year. Attendance is typically between 5-10k for those games. Any uptick in attendance would be from people already working downtown. Non issue. I doubt the IRS would open their garages, however, since those buildings are unoccupied during baseball season ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Wichita! https://www-1.kansas.com/sports/mlb/article237008899.html There's decent bike infrastructure right at the stadium so I think they might be fairly successful. There's a signed bike route immediately west, and to the east both sides of the river are multi-use paths. They already do a bike va...

Re: Ward Parkway Center

H-E-B's Central Market chain blows everything else out of the water and we could really use more stores like it here. (Sidenote: Central Market does exist in the DFW mextroplex) I think the closest thing we have is the fancy Hen House?

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

Krokstrom was on Triple D this week, might help them boost sales. That really seems like a restaurant that doesn't fit the Triple D mold, it's not really a diner, drive in or dive and it's quite expensive and portions are small, this might actually backfire with people that watch and eat at DDD res...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Wichita city proper probably only has growth because they are annexing a lot of areas. If u Google wichita and see there city limits there is an island that is like 30 miles SW of Wichita by Viola KS. That can't be part of the city can it? Looks like it's a police-related facility owned by the city...
