My Fellow Tattlers,
Well, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently published an article if Ross Park Mall's formula is working:
A year after southwestern Pennsylvania finally got its very own Nordstrom store -- tucked, in true Pittsburgh fashion, high on a hill out of sight for confused drivers -- mall workers credit the Seattle chain for drawing shoppers from far off environs: New York, West Virginia, Ohio, Shadyside.The article can be seen here:
Personally, I have not a problem with the mall going upscale. However it would be nice if the powers that be would diversify. Like any good stock portfolio, you should diversify. In the sense of retail -- have a variety of stores.
In this Tattler's opinion, Ross Park Mall is all high end CLOTHING stores. It would be nice if management could attract other retailers such as a book store or something to do with electronics.
Working to keep you posted...
