    There’s a Grater’s in Easton already.

    There’s a Graeter’s less than a mile from a Jeni’s in Bexley already. I don’t think either one is hurting for customers though.

    Has anyone been to the Walmart at Easton lately? That has to be one of the trashiest places I have been to. I think before adding the Gateway, they need to restructure the area across the street and make it more friendly.

    I find many Walmarts to be “trashy” in different ways.

    Sidenote: It’s amazing the difference in cleanliness, customer base, vibe, product quality, etc, between Target and Walmart.

    It’s always been that way, even after it was remodeled.

    A dollar or two difference for the same items will do that. Some people don’t want to see the real “Central Ohio” when the are out shopping, so they pay the extra to be with each other in the middle class that can afford the extra bucks.

    I do have to say though that Walmart is AMAZINGLY cheap. If we are down by Stringtown, we always stop in be buy Cereal. Its always a buck or two cheaper than we can get it at Kroger or Giant Eagle on sale.

    So was the new parking garage designed to one day house stores? It looks like it was since there are store fronts and the parking spaces near them have around a 20 foot ceiling

    There are big reasons Wal-Mart is cheaper, none of them good. One only need look at the Wal-Mart Mexico corruption scandal to understand their operation.

    At first I thought the bottom of the garage would house retail from day one. It certainly looks that way, but I haven’t seen anything official about eventual conversion plans.

    the Macy’s parking garage build-out is a pretty decent mixed use example:

    storefronts are being constructed now and I noticed the back of other stores are now creating new entrances for this new pedestrian friendly street.

    This isn’t mixed use at all. There are no other uses other than retail.
