Once TJ Max finds out that Hallmark is closing they'll probably not be opening here anytime soon.

Are there any retail stores in this town that actually last? I swear anything good in this town goes to shit eventually. One more good thing shutting down. Not a surprise. All those idiots that want to play this town up like its something great are delusional and foolish. El Dorado is a half-ghetto shit hole. This town is either doing something very wrong or this fucker is cursed. People have talked about it being cursed for decades now. I'm starting to believe that superstitious bullshit might really be true. Its true because the town officials that WE put in place are corrupt, greedy, elitist pieces of shit that don't give a damn about doing anything for this town except trying (and failing) to make it some kind of wannabe party town. All the "positive thinking" in the world won't change what this place really is. Its good to be positive but not in denial about this horrible town. El Dorado will NEVER be a good place to live unless you're comparing it to a 3rd world country. The only people that like it here are drunk rednecks or super-wealthy bloodsuckers that like being the big fish in our tiny ass pathetic pond.

I forgot to add the other type of people that like it here - the middle class brown nosers that kiss ass to the town officials for favors or attention.

There's a third type. Those who constantly complain and bitch but don't so anything about it, yet keep on living here. These are the ones who try to tear down anything good that happens and only focus on the negative. They must enjoy it because they're always doing it!

So which one are you?

Perhaps the owner of the shopping center raised the rent and she decided to leave just like the New Century person.

I would say that sense the population has dropped by the thousands in recent years that shows you they have found better places.

no, you can easily sell a profitable business but unprofitable businesses just go out of business, way to much of this happening in Eldorado...this is just yet another prime example, but we are still recuiting more retail ?? it nuts !

you can make light of that comment all you want to..........I understand they both sell different types of merchandise.........but most folks in this town are on a budget with x number of dollars to spend each month, so whatever money is spent at (oklahoma) ATWOODS, that is that many dollars (less) left to spend at other retail type businesses..........it's all about the size of the pie !!

Until nobody spends a single dollar shopping out of town, that pie you keep talking about is invalid. The more options we have, the more likely people will spend money here and the more likely people will come visit from elsewhere.

I feel that Americans should go on a retail strike until The Obamanation is outta office. I Dont get were retail businesses and an art district are going to SAVE El Dorado. To the Powers-That-Be- get El Dorado some industrial jobs! Quit snow blowing the retail business and get on your knees for some real jobs. Thatís why we elected you, because we know you have it in you to brown nose with best of them . Now go forth and blow away For El Dorado!

There will always be a little of that happening because some folks just enjoy getting out of town for a day, that will always happen, but to keep snowballing these retailers and resturants into coming to town is only hurting local businesses and finally themselves....n one wins in this game.......find us some real jobs, not retail.

When big box retail started carrying Hallmark it really hurt the small business owners. Hallmark in my hometown recently closed after nearly 30 years in business. Walmart moved in.....

Nope. They've been running off those attracted to this town who get tired of the negativity. Your uglyass pessimism will remain.

People leave El Dorado because of the "negative people". Hahahahahahaha! Yeah right. They leave because there are other places with SO much more to offer. Like industrial jobs, better education, better prices on housing, 4 year colleges, outdoor activities that don't center around fishing or shooting something, better weather, better food, better (meaning less corrupt) town officials, people that recognize their town's faults and don't vehemently deny any problems exist at all (therefore never changing or solving any problems), a population that isn't declining by the day.... I could go on but there's really no point in trying to make a moron see reason. Comments like this are just more proof of how people will deny the problems therefore never solving them. That mentality is part of El Dorado's poison and also why it won't change. The people that get passionate about really changing anything get a door in the face every time by people who want to pretend they're just "negative" and making it up. Don't worry "Really", that is "really fucking crazy", most of us who realize this town will never change tend to leave sooner than later. After all, over 12 percent (yes, 12% just look it up) of us already have, just in the last decade!
