Like others have said, out west is now what this place used to be 20 or more years ago. Do your homework before you leap. There's plenty that have moved west. I would move but I'm not taking a loss on my property.

You should look at this

The title could have any one of several cities named in it. Just keep an open mind as Spanish Lake isn't all that far away from where you're considering.

I saw the screening at the Tivoli and it was well received.

<quoted text>And you missed my point entirely. What I do have knowledge of is demographics and business plans. How do you know that I "have no personal knowledge of anyone on this forum who may own a business in Florissant or any community nor of the profitability of those businesses." I did plenty of research and one can start with census data. The income levels are higher out here. The houses are valued better. There are multiple cultures whites, blacks, hispanics, etc. with MORE disposable income to support small business. Now as far as the racial business goes, this area is made up of mostly people that once lived on that side of the river. I could have opened my business up over there but the numbers are better here and didn't support that market plan. That's just the facts and you wouldn't know them if you haven't done your research. Lower income people from the city don't spend as much as educated middle income people from the suburbs do. There is a reason that your Jamestowne mall has declined. It sure didn't happen because educated whites and blacks do all of their shopping there. You don't know me and you certainly ain't the almighty Jesus so you can't judge me either.
BBO, FYI, I did my research also before moving to Dardenne Prairie. Belz outlet mall in Wentzville failed, as did the other retail businesses that followed. Warrenton Outlet Mall down the highway also failed or is about to do so. Commercial vacancies are all over the place in western St. Charles County, particularly on HWYs K and 79, and among the tilt ups along HWY 64. Very high residential foreclosures also (I know--I bought one). And it costs $6-8 bucks in gas for most folks just to get to HWY 270 and back.

Just sayin.

If you're spending that kind of money on gas then your getting bent over a screwed in the poop shoot. BTW, Mid Rivers, Chesterfield, Plaza Frontenac and West County malls seem to be doing fine. Guess that would have something to do with some "undesirables" f'n up the ones you mentioned. Jus sayin.

You might want to exclude Mid Rivers. Their department stores don't carry the high end brands like West County and Galleria department stores. There is a reason for that.

Plenty of shoppers from the St. Louis Co. side of the river are using Mid Rivers Mall instead of The Mills. Can't imagine why?
