Sprint had two locations before TMobile, there was some stupid redundancy happening there.

VS has closed about 15% of their stores. I can understand how one might underperform next to Liberty.

Christopher and Banks is bankrupt. They closed all their stores.

VS is probably the biggest punch yet. But if they can secure good dining and desert options along with some regionally appropriate (think southern or outdoors) stores, the mall will be fine. Parking once for dinner and a movie is fantastic. A couple grill and bars on the addition would be killer with the outdoor space. It also takes care of the youth problem. The more grown ups are there, the fewer youth want to be there.

The hope is fall of 2022-early 2023
Thanks. I hadn't really kept track of the progress, and hadn't been up there in well over a year, probably close to two years. Need to get back up there soon to check it all out since I'm fully vaccinated now. Perhaps once the schedule of NBA playoff games settles down.

Finally got around to checking out the mall after watching The Green Knight. Last time I was up there the Iron & Ale was really close to opening. The changes are aesthetically pleasing but nothing has really been added that I care about. Looks like the new stuff is generally targeted heavily towards basic white girls. Stuff I saw in Dick's that I liked I can just get cheaper online.

Mall was pretty busy though so that was a welcome site. Last few times I went pre-pandemic it was pretty light traffic in there.

Like all malls?
Most malls. Not all. The Short Pump Mall had quite a few stores that piqued my interest.

I bet CFA is doing even more of a killing than they normally did up there given there’s only three restaurants up there now with Farmers Garden and Iron & Ale, or did I miss another one?

We were down at Crabtree in Raleigh over the weekend and there were many more stores for my interest than there are here. That being said, for a location like River Ridge in a town like Lynchburg, it is what it is. We're not getting some of the heavy hitters that would pique my interest. I said before the whole location should have been turned into a mixed use residential/retail/entertainment district.
