As you know, we got good places around to eat & drink,a place to shop & very good movie cinema, but what is missing here what is not here you want to see. I can list a few & the reason why we need them. Here is my list. Please note all these place are out of town.

Dive Shop(I think it be good, planty of dive spots around us)
Best Buy(Mostly every city around us has one why not us)
Target(same reason)
Baskin Robins(I miss having a smoothie)
Calvers(for good ice cream & burgers)
Buffalo Wild Wings(good wings & watch your favorite team on tv)

So that is just the few places I like to see here. Now its your turn! What do you think is missing here in Granite & metion why its needed here. Also what folks think of my places I want here? So until next time please stay safe & take care.

Why don't we have them???? Probably because its dumb to have them when they are all 15-20 min away. Stop being lazy and drive to collinsville/edwardsville ad enjoy every single store you just mentioned.

Because Granite does not have the income base to support any of those things.

Why you wanna waste gas money for when gas is almost $4 a gallon I think we should have them here so we don't have to drive out to them when we got them here.

Unfortunately, Dirk, your dreams will never come true. Edwardsville, Fairview, etc are much nicer cities that people are willing to go to for these stores/restaurants. That's how they keep the businesses going. Granite has a hard time keeping businesses going because its not a very big city and only locals will go there to shop/eat. People aren't going to travel from collinsville, Alton, edwardsville, Fairview, etc to entertain in granite. I'm born and raised in granite myself, I'm just keepin it real. Its the truth. Think about it.

Best Buy is closing stores so that won't happen.

Maybe if the people of Granite City would support their local retailers others would be willing to build in GC.

Fairview isn't that great of a city any more. They have police officers on duty at Chuck E Cheese because the adults can't control themselves. Denny's closed because of the gang violence. The mall isn't very safe either.

A bookstore is right,all you would need here is a book.If your book is about scratching your balls and picking your nose at the same time you might have a winner

Bookstores are lile dinosaurs, extinct. With technolgy moving to instant download a book bookstores are unneccasary. With that being said, we do have a bookstore downtown and two library's.

Mister is right. Bookstores are almost non-existant.
Utilize the library.
The library near me allows downloads for my Kindle Fire.

First of all, Fairview is NOT a nice city. Wonder why that is. GC couldn't even keep a Starbucks going. Before you rant about their coffee being too expensive, put down your smokes and beer and cancel that tattoo appointment ... And then rant away.
