Eastern Shore Centre was never that 'upscale' to begin with. That mall has more than a few vacant storefronts.
Zoning laws, expenses and location usually keep mall tenant space from being leased to pawn shops and bail bondsmen.

Rumor has it that Apple will be opening a new computer store in the old Sharper Image store space.
I can't wait!

I just came back from Chi-Chi's Pizza Restaurant on Rt. 59 in Foley. This is a nice economical restaurant with fairly good pizza's and a decent salad bar. For a quick meal at a low cost, it's fine. The problem I'm addressing is that tonight there were lots of Blacks there that lived up to almost every stereotype White people have of them. Yes, there were White families with little kids who acted as little kids do from time to time by running around and making noise but that is to be expected in an informal eatery. What concerns me is the number of Blacks that acted in ways that one would expect to see in the Watts Ghetto of Los Angelos and not in Foley. Some of the teenage girls barely (no pun intended) dressed like they had just come from street-walking or were about to go out street-walking. Of course, most of the teen-age Black males had the usual pants down to the heels. One especially horribly dressed and even filthy looking Black guy was actually laying down on the seat of one booth talking on a cell phone for about 10 minutes. Another Black came in with an infant in a carry-cradle and sat it down in the middle of an aisle so that everyone had to go around tables to get up to the counter. I came from a town where these types of activities by Blacks were the norm and I was hoping that I could get away from it in Foley because it is so disgusting. I don't know what is happening but it seems that the lowest class of Blacks have all of a sudden discovered Foley and I'm worried that they may ruin it if they keep coming in. This post is by a person who voted for Obama because I liked his politics and it made no difference to me that he is half Black or anything else. I'm sure that Obama would also embarrassed by these Blacks and hope that someday these Blacks would take notice of how most other people act in public and try to assimulate themselves after more than 300 years in this Country.

I have recently been through a little of the same type of issues.At a convenient store and gas station next to the Trust Mark Bank on highway 59,I have had several "blacks"ask me for money while in side the store paying for my gas.One of them had a six pack of beer he couldn't pay for,and the other one said he needed gas money,and the other one wanted a quarter.This is not a normal stop for me,have stopped there on occasions while taking my Grandson to work.But I will never stop there again.One of the things that irritates me the most is the language they use while in public,the "F-Word"flows out of their mouth like they are saying hello.And it seems like they don't care if it's in front of you're small children or their own.Lets hope Foley is not destroyed by blacks,they really need to pull their pants up and act like civil human beings.

Ci Ci's Pizza, not Chi Chi's. Bank Trust, not Trust Mark, Hwy 59, not Rt. 59. Ya'll both got some small details wrong, but your points are loud and clear. I would ask you both to do one thing before posting such views. Head up to the Summerdale Flea Market or the Elberta Social Club and see how impressive your white brothers and sisters are behaving. US "whites" have got our own "lowest class" and they are just as discusting and foul and explicit in day-to-day conversation.

I did make the mistake of naming the wrong Bank,I use both and the one I mentioned is in Mississippi.I am far from being a Saint but I don't tolerate this kind of language in front of my family no matter who is using it,and I have approached many asking them to hold the language down.I do avoid any where I would think this could be a problem when with my family.
This is new to me where I have been approached for money and people do not want to take no for a answer,makes me very nerveous and probably is not a good idea.And I mention the Black race because this is the people that I was involved with,and I won't hesitate to mention the white race if I have involment with them in the same situations.These situations do seem to be getting worse.
