It’s too bad we keep losing higher end stores at Stoneridge. There were a few, but the toy store and Janie and Jacks spring to mind right away. Some closures can’t be helped: Teavana was shuttered by Starbucks; Brookstone will close because of bankruptcy. But I don’t enjoy more outlet style stores. It seems that Walnut Creek is retaining or attracting the better stores now, with their remodel. Stoneridge, on the other hand, has had a constant cycle of poorly thought out fast food that fail to last six months.

I wonder what can be done about this. Is it just that the mall clientele isn’t capable of supporting a more varied and interesting set of stores? And if so, how could that be given that Pleasanton and Walnut Creek don’t seem that different to me except for size.

Simon malls loves playing the shuffle game, nothing new to see here folks. In 6 months expect the apple store to switch places with Forever 21

Would help if this story was identified as a press release from Simon vs. an actual news item. Doesn’t really matter...once Sears closes, likely with JCP and Macy’s consolidating into one location not far behind, this mall is in for some challenging times. A-level malls such as Stanford, South Coast Plaza, etc. are doing well. The future of others is quite tenuous.

Post above should have read “JCP closing...”.

Now that we have the outlet mall in Livermore, Stoneridge will go down hill particularly with Sears and JCP closing, and the opening of new low end retailers. Malls are a thing of the past. Redevelop it with mixed commercial and high density condos and apartments including senior units. Its at BART, near freeways and big employers, and within walking distance of Kaiser. Better to create a campus like community than attracting more car break-ins, purse snatching and shoplifting. Thats why we go to downtown Walnut Creek instead where its more interesting, higher end and safer.

The new retail center in San Ramon’s Bishop Ranch is taking Pottery Barn and continues to sign other high end and boutique stores.

Cinnabon and Go Poke are fast food junk eateries. The Tri Valley is well on its way to being unremarkably suburban (sprawl) despite having lots of opportunities. Look at Walnut Creek and the soon to be San Ramon City Center. We need a central shopping hub plus the historic downtowns where unique small independent shops are located.

I will be visiting the new Cinnabon tomorrow to purchase my favorite treat.
