It`s interesting how this person paints CCC as being some sort of suburban big-box mall when it is far from it. It is a HUGE improvement from what really were big-box, suburban-style malls! CCC does have national as well as international chains, but local business are also included - Rocky Mt Choc Factory and Kneaders. Plus, CCC reaches out to local business in other ways:
"Many local and national companies choose City Creek Center to present programs that build their business while enhancing the experience of our shoppers. From automobile displays and new product showcases to special event sponsorship, our corporate partners have learned there are few better places to build lasting relationships with Salt Lake City's best customers than at City Creek Center."
As for the "Disney Land" comparison, it doesn`t even come close. Is it the Disney Store that makes it feel like Disney Land? Besides, what`s wrong with Disney Land? It is a hugely popular tourist attraction found in many diverse places of the world like Japan and Europe. It bothers me how some people consider "diverse" to exclude anything they deem too "traditional". Diverse means a little of everything including traditional. I feel like CCC is pretty diverse and I have seen many different types of people shopping there. It`s as if this blogger would prefer that anyone who appears too "traditional" be excluded from the mall in order for it to be "diverse" enough for her.
I must say, John McCain said it best. This country has become a nation of whiners. It seems like there will always be someone upset and whiny about something no matter how good it may be. Especially since the blogger complains about all the things that CCC improved from what used to be there. Ironic!
