Second time I've been up that way on a couple years.  I don't care much for driving around Monroe.  Like Adrian proper, congested.

I guess we won't see you driving a cab in New York or Los Angeles!

The Monroe location, not all of Hallmark.   Though in general the greeting card business isn’t what it used to be.

With Hallmark cards costing $5-6 each, they should be making more money than a crack dealer.  No wonder people aren’t buying as many.

We saw the picket crew out in front of the former K-Mart store yesterday and they had one sign that said they were closing in 4 more days.  Also signs saying all fixtures for sale at up to 30% off prior prices.

I have various colors of card stock and just print a card out of the computer if I need one.

Today people are all connected on Facebook and Twitter or facetime or whatever.  Unless you're sending something to a non techie why would you even think about going to Hallmark.

You missed the Humane Society's store.

Do you have any idea if the Humane Society pays rent for their space?  It's becoming one of my favorite places to shop at the mall.  I know they're working on their new building and I think I read that both the shelter on Telegraph and the retail store would both be moving to their new site on N. Monroe Street.

BonTon says it's coming back but it doesn't look like they're planning any stores in Michigan.  Going mostly for an 'on line' presence.  Wonder how that will work out for them?

When I went by the other day, was a big sign out front...'Outlots for sale'  They should be selling or leasing in lots not out lots I'd think.  Malls have went out of style.  Adrian is the same, just not quite as bad.

The company that bought the Bon Ton brands is the same Chinese backed company that is bringing back the Direct Buy membership home products scam.
