  1. Unfortunately, Simon has no say in the retailers merchandise mix. How can you blame them for that?However, retailers do use a lot of market research to determine which products fit their customer base for a particular market . Their research must have shown that East siders did not want higher priced merchandise.

  2. I agree, For 20 years, Washington Square has been an outlet type mall for the stuff stores couldn't sell at other malls. People with money to spend saw this and just started going directly to the other malls. Even when it had a Macys, there wasn't much there for me to buy.

  3. I do not want to be bombarded with political talk first thing in the morning and while I am getting ready for work. Give me weather, humor, traffic reports, and the fact about major news. I miss Steve Simpson.

  4. The east siders stopped going to the mall when they were forced to go to Greenwood or Castleton if they wanted a product that was seen in the advertisement flyer they received in the Indy Star. Those fine retailers you mentioned down-graded their merchandise. For the east side mass with money to spend we don't want to spend our it on cheap crap. So I don't feel any compassion for Simon or the retailers who help bring the mall down!

  5. Oh, I know all too well. It is a much bigger issue with corporations in the United States. I am completely opposed to this type of corporate structure and easy to bail options. For example, companies shouldn't be allowed to go "bankrupt", shed their debt, then reopen as though nothing happened. The lost $$$ comes from somewhere and in the end, it is the ordinary consumer that pays for it.
