Bellevue Center needs to take a new direction - again. Whoever decided to change the tennants to a lower-class selection was... silly. Simply put, you do not build a mall for poor people - they don't have the income to spend. Hecht's should close and be rennovated to become a Lord and Taylor (same parent company) and Dillard's should really consider beefing up their younger/hipper clothes. The mall is very nice and has a great location; they just need some direction, preferably up. I like the mall - I just hope that the new management makes it a destination instead of a duplication. Here are some ideas: Club Monaco, Banana Republic, Crate and Barrel, Parisian, Nordstrom, Goldsmith's - a renewed anchor-base would help a lot. Maybe a full-service hotel like a Hyatt or a Westin would help, something like the Winfrey at Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham. Do something - please!
Pros: Area, ample expansion room
Cons: prev. mgmt. bad, losing stores daily
