Our sad little mall.

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon.
It was a nice, steady, busy, week.
Men came to repair the wall of an empty unit in our mall that was apparently hit by a vehicle.
I say apparently, because it was discovered in the morning. The wall was buckled inwards, but not broken through. No other physical evidence of how it happened. Any who, They had to take out the whole wall and window. It doesn't look like the brick is going to match very well, but we'll see once it's done.
Here's a pic of our new neighbor's space.
They have these posters covering the windows so you can't see what's inside. According to the owner, Herbalife won't let them have what appears to be a store front. They can have no signage of any kind featuring their products. They can't even have an open/closed sign, or even hours that they are open.
They have been very slow the last 2 weeks and I'm not sure they'll be able to make it. Time will tell.

Another pic of our corner of the mall. We're barely visible to the left. The rest are empty.
Across the mall from our space. There are only 2 store fronts occupied in the entire corner now that Jo-Ann Fabrics moved out of that big corner lite up section.
Our mall is U shaped and our wing has the most occupied as we have 5 businesses out of 9 units. In all there are only 8 businesses in this mall of 22 spaces.
I'm glad I don't own this mall, as he's not making much from it. I think he needs to lower his rental rates if he expects to attract more tenants. At least, we have plenty of parking!  :-)
And today is going to be the last  nicer than normal day as temps are forecast into the upper 60's before falling into the upper 30's by Tuesday. So I'll be out in the yard all day, trying to get the most out of it.
And with that, I gotta go!

  1. It's a shame that Herbalife can get away with such tactics against your little health store. I wish them the best.

    It remains to be seen if we'll get cold or how cold. It was blustery today and ended with a bit of rain.
    We'll see how it goes.

    Have a great weekend!
