Scoop of the Week


Wish it were more exciting. The huge Bang Bang space has been rented. The new tenants?

New York and Company

It's a mall-friendly clothing store. Should fit in nicely, next to Banana Republic and Sephora. Here is the website with confirmation

As far as neighborhood impact, it doesn't look like it will have much of one. No worse than Bang Bang certainly. A lot of you are going to be pissed about this, the continuing mallification of Austin St. But it could have been a Conway or a KFC, so consider yourself lucky. Yes, a Whole Foods would have been nice, but my guess is we'll get one of those too.
If you pick up on this tremendous Earth-shattering news, please give the blog a credit. Thanks.
