@vestanpance ….. exactly! I actually like going there now, and the Macy’s add-on looks great so far; I just wish they would take all this money they’re spending on Easton Market/Gateway and invest more in the original Community model, that I believe will start to grow on its own with other developers in the area, if more mixed use was incorporated.September 20, 2012 at 3:26 pm #491244
In this story the frustration comes in because they are landing some great stores and if they stuck with the Community model this would not only be a great destination, but an amazing part of the city to live in.
Nordstrom Rack is coming to Easton Market, a “power center” owned and operated by DDR Corp. (where Dick’s, World Market, DSW, etc is located).
Easton Town Center itself was co-developed by The Georgetown Company and Steiner + Associates.

Yagööt Heads Home
COLUMBUS – December 2, 2012 – Yagööt, a Cincinnati-based frozen yogurt brand, announced today its withdrawal from the Columbus market. Yagoot’s Easton Town Center location opened in March 2010, and will close December 24, 2012. An announcement to current employees was given today.
“It’s become logistically challenging to operate and manage a single store so far from our core market,” said Dan Busken, CEO of Yagööt. “Our location in Easton Town Center was an A+, in terms of prime Easton real estate. And although profitable since day one, it simply pulled too much of our attention away from focusing our growth locally in Cincinnati.”
Yagoot is headquartered in Cincinnati, which includes the operation of four other retail locations.
“Our goal in expanding to Columbus was to test our concept and our abilities outside our current geographic base,” said Busken. “This proved to be a greater challenge than expected for a privately owned company with limited resources.”
The move from Columbus is an opportunity for the company to focus its resources on the Greater Cincinnati/NKY market.
Beau Amason, EVP of Easton Town Center and Co-Develop of Steiner + Associates commented, “Easton Town Center prides itself on the quality of its tenants and its tenant mix. Adding Yagoot in 2010 was an opportunity to offer a best-in-class tenant who filled a specific niche in our dining options. They have been an outstanding tenant partner, but we certainly understand their decision to focus on their core market.”December 4, 2012 at 1:46 pm #491251
I personally did not like Yagoot ….. I see this space being taken in days since the “make your own frozen yogurt” market is huge right now, the space is setup for it already, and they said they were making a profit.December 4, 2012 at 1:59 pm #491252

Jeni’s is going to saturate the market too much, something else needs to go hereDecember 4, 2012 at 4:08 pm #491255
I dont’ think one local ice cream shop per neighborhood is too muchDecember 4, 2012 at 4:19 pm #491256

There’s a Grater’s in Easton already.December 4, 2012 at 4:36 pm #491257
this is true … but I don’t see Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream as two separate business models and Yagoot was turning a profit.
