^ Only if either John Cranley doesn't overwhelm 'em with a move to Norwood (read in, Paycor) or John Kasich doesn't once again come rollin' into town with another $400,000,000 bribe to lure 'em to Columbus (read in, Sears).
People see Paycor moving to Norwood as a huge loss, but what about the reverse poaching? MedPace moved from Norwood to Madisonville, a Cincinnati neighborhood, due to incentives. Or Omnicare moving from Covington to Cincinnati? Or Nelson Media? This stuff happens so regularly that it's not even worth blaming someone for - corporations will always be on the move or be pressing for deals to save a few bucks. It's nothing new.
My guess is that Kenwood Collection was asking for Kenwood Towne Centre level rents. The need to realize that Kenwood Collection is not the major mall - it's a glorified strip mall across the parking lot from the major mall.
But then they wouldn't be on Fifth!
I was at an UpTech event last night at 8451 and couldn't help but notice how run down Saks looked. The door where the van crashed through during Christmas time hasn't been replaced (yet), the sign lighting is dim and out, the neon lights over the front entrance are out and the store just looked like an old K-Mart about to close.Does anyone know the fate of the store? If I were a betting man, I'd say they're planning to close up shop soon - but if not, they need to do some work asap. It's somewhat embarrassing and a blemish on the progress in that area as it stands. Does anyone have any insight?
