You should grow up and get educated. It is in all races. Every race has those that give their race a bad name. We can't keep people out of the mall because they look shady. Everyone has a right to shop, and if you don't like what ever race is in there then you have a problem. The mall would be a better place without people like you in there, so stay out!!!

Really doesn't make sense...higher-priced stores during a recession. I haven't been there for almost 2 years, after World Market, Steve & Barry's and Virgin Megastore closed.

And yes, the gangs are there. Deny it all you want. Now I see why that kiosk selling pocket knives has been there for so long.

You love stereo typing. You think blacks don't live up here? Maybe not that many, take your blind folds off and see the true color of our world...it is all mixed with lots of different races. I bet your own race doesn't even want you around. You seem very disgruntled. Everyone's sh!t stinks including yours. Sorry you think I am a dick, but I can imagine what people think about you.

My wife and I went to Ontario Mills for a movie after having not been there for a while. First off,the AMC was a disgusting pit. Then, there were foul-mouthed wannabe gangsters acting like they were bad-a**es,knuckleheads threatening to kick each others' a**es, posturing etc. I felt safer in a housing project in Watts than at Ontario Mills. So we took our butts back to Rancho and Victoria Gardens and there we will stay.

Higher priced stores DO make sense when you consider that the mall is drawing more people who spend on higher priced items. It's drawing people from as far away a L.A.
The stores and the mall are in business to make money, so, why not?

The mall is disgusting. There are a lot of other choices about where to spend your money. If they don't clean it up, they will just lose all of the stores that have come in just as they did the old ones. Numbers of "visitors" don't necessarily make it a success. The people who hang out at that mall is why so many shoppers have actually left.

If Ontario Mills wants paying customers, its management should get rid of the gangsters and the gangster-looking crowd who are not really buying anything, but just hanging around scaring the actual customers off. Clean the place up. Until then, I am shopping at Victoria Gardens.

Return to high end? What has that headline writer been smoking? If the Mills is high-end, I'll eat my socks.

Outlet mall clothes are NOT the same as you find in the name brand stores. They are no longer "factory seconds", they are, instead, a totally different line, often using much cheaper material in their construction.

Apparently, this "reporter" failed to fact-check their own story. And as far as "mixed use development", what about the abandoned condo project on fourth street, almost right across from the mall?

Me? I no longer will go there. I bought a $500 item at Sam Ash, they had to walk it over to the cashier, and then someone had to check my receipt for it at the store exit? Sorry, I paid for that item, I'm under no legal obligation to show my receipt to anyone. Once you take my money, that item belongs to me. But, given the gang kids who hang out there, store owners may be reduced to such desperate measures.

What keeps me away from the Ontario Mills is the ganbanger looking types. I don't feel comfortable walking around that mall with the baldheaded tattooed latinos on one side, and the black guys with their pants hanging down to their knees on the other Not what I care to mingle with, while I'm shopping. Once I was using an ATM inside the mall and a gangbanger type snuck up right behind me, he was standing so close, even after I gave him a look like "get back." He didn't so I cancelled my transaction and left. Get rid of the gangbangers and respectful, decent people will feel comfortable shopping there.

Say what you want but that comment you are responding to was correct. Hard working decent people do not want to spend their hard earned money shopping amongst the gang element. Unfortunately that mall has been overtaken by gangbanger types, whether they are them or just choose to look like them. It has nothing to do with race, it has to do with type, and when that type moves in, decent hard working people move out! That's the truth!!!!!!!!

You guys that are stereo typing me in Lake Arrowhead I am LMAO right now!! You guys have your head so far up your asses to think I am a white guy or something rowing on a row boat! I wish I had a boat! I am a latina female!!! 100% and proud! It's true people don't want to be around gangstas, and what have you. Shit sometimes my own raza gets me embarassed, and by the way I am for "No" on illegal immigration! I love my race, but they need to come here legally!! I admit I do hate being around loud, foul mouthed people, but hey that's life and no matter what they are going to be around. It's true they need to do something about the type of crowd going there, but that would be discrimination! There would never be a sign that reads, "No gangstas allowed, or loud, rude black people". This is reality!! That isn't going to happen. So keep doing what you guys have been doing...shop else where!! It doesn't bother me shopping over there. If they do something to me personally then that's a different story. I haven't been mistreated. Oh, wait now you guys are going to say they haven't done anything to me because I am a minority now. First a racist, rich white guy with a boat that lives in Lake Arrowhead, and now a minority.

I don't like the skinheads, but we live in America and there is free speech for us all. Besides they weren't the violent ones...they got their asses kicked! Us, Mexicans have protested, blacks have protested...everyone has a right to free speech. Let the whites have there turn too.
