Keep on trucking and driving

out of the area to spend your hard-earned dollars.

You are only depriving

yourself, your children, your grandchildren and your neighbors,

a chance to earn a decent living to support present and future growth in our local communities.

You have voted with your wallet, on our and your futures, by delivering money to people and businesses outside of our communities.

What reason or incentive

would there be for anyone to create a business or service

if the money isn’t here to support them,

and people vote with their wallets and take what little is in it, elsewhere to spend?

What we have for shopping, healthcare, jobs, education, and numerous other possibilities,

is the direct result of where locals spend, or do not spend their money.

What is spent in this area is income for another person in this area, and continues to circulate in multiplier fashion, until the circle is broken, and money is exported elsewhere.

Spending our money outside of our communities has many implications for local units of government, schools, tax-base, and the ability to maintain and improve all of these entities, facilities, and infrastructures.

You’ve sowed, and now you are reaping the benefits of short-sightedness, and the benefits of short-run versus long-term politics and economics.

Maybe if they would bring stores people are willing to shop at they would grow. Bring in the American Eagle, Abercrombie, Hollister, Old Navy, Aeropostale and I bet the sales sky rocket. Instead of driving 3 hours to shop it would all be here. They would never have to worry about business again! Apparently that's just too much to ask for. This town is getting worse and worse. So now what? We are stuck with Walmart & places like Goodwill? How exciting..

Are you kidding me? I can't list H.T.T.P? Well, just make sure the website has a "S" at the end of the address. That stands for "Secure" and that no one can eavesdrop in on your information.

This isn't "trash" cause I know for a fact it is very difficult to find mens clothing in this area. JP is limited.

I use the internet and I make sure the address is *****://. Very important to make sure that is not *******, if it is, don't give CC number or SS#, etc.

I agree with almost everyone's comments. I had to laugh at a few as well! Thanks for the long, lost memories dannydods:) I also remember Red Owl, Boy Blue, Radio Shack, etc. Oh! The Movie Theatre as well!

If my memory is correct, it's because of the Mall we opened the door to shopping on Sundays in this area.

I just feel for all those that are at the mall, whether they rent or are employed there.

But, hey, these owners had a chance to keep the empty spaces opened and they refused to negotiate with the tenants.

Does anybody remember having to insert a dime to use the Rest Rooms? Woman had no problem cause there was one always coming out, but wasn't the case for Men.

This is another symptom of the shortsightedness of those that run the City of Escanaba. There are vacant buildings all over the city including the mall, and yet more and more businesses are putting up buildings. If the city tried to consolidate the retail areas of the town, you would have a thriving shopping area. Instead you have to drive all over town to get a day's shopping.

the mall pretty much buried itself. back in the 90s and early 00s it used to be a pretty nice place. not too bad for a small town like escanaba. we had sam goody, awesome food court, cool arcade, along with some other interesting stores. All they have now is shopko which does pretty good for itself. if the owners weren't so greedy and didn't charge an outrageous rent, a lot more stores would still be open with more competitive prices. last 10 years it's turned into a ghost town or ghost mall i guess you could say.

Hopefully we will get new owners who will be concerned not with just making as much money as possible before moving on, not caring whats been left in the wake, but who will also be interested in the community as well. There's no reason we can't support more retail stores like Marquette and Green Bay have, on a smaller scale.

Just tear down that ugly useless mall and start over !!! While you are at tear down the downtown area as well. It is no wonder Walmart is always so busy !!! I agree with retiredandhappy except we go to Green Bay a lot !!!!

What took so long? Delta Plaza has been dying for years. I don't even bother with it. I just drive the 55 miles and head for Marquette. They have it together. Good shopping, better places to eat, just a better selection.
