Seems I need to get a couple things off my chest today…light bulbs and shopping centers.
Driving by the Costco center in San Luis Obispo the other day I noticed a “Now Hiring” sign on one of the new buildings under construction. I perked up to see what business was going in and saw it was going to be another Panda Express.
With all the hub-bub there has been about the Dalidio Marketplace, Madonna keeps adding stores that we already have in town. Did we really need another electronics store, pet store, and an office supply store? Now I hear they are going to build a new grocery store across the street within a mile of 2 existing ones.
This isn’t sounding like “smart growth” to me. If different types of stores were to open in these places, maybe people wouldn’t see as much of a need for the Marketplace.
