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.
Taxes and flood plain. If you were a corporate office for a large chain of any kind, would you want to build a brand new store/restaurant in an area that supposedly has unsafe levees protecting it? And it at one time was river bottom? On the other hand, I know people from Missouri that cross the river to eat at a few of our local restaurants. Maybe if more people in GC would quit going to other towns to see a movie when we have an awesome cinema here, and also quit putting your money in the pockets of other towns restaurants, the locally owned places we have open here would survive. Please support our local businesses. Help them make enough money to survive and become better... Just saying

Bob has it right, we should all support out local places. We are also not giving the people in chairs in city hall(the people we voted for)in city hall a chance run this city.

Ed is doing good since he took office in 2005 & I am glad he is my mayor. I say ths how about we rally togeter & get something happening here in the city. You know what they say United we stand divied we fall.

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.
So, you don't think my dreams will come true. You know my big dream is being a singer. I am still got that dream & I will make it come true until kills me. We need to get rid of alot of things in this city besides a few bad places & I know a few places, & I know u know a few places your self. The most important thing is we need to give these people we elected in the chairs in city hall a chance. Why not join me in a rally to get this city back & with Mayor Ed we can make big changes in this city.

Lol. I didn't really mean your dreams won't come true, I just mean your dreams of there being more restaurants, etc in gc. I seriously doubt they will ever happen. Look at everything that has had to close down in the last several years. It's pretty sad. Even rallying and what not will probably never work. It's a blue collar town.:-/

I encourage your dream of becoming singer! You can do anything you put your mind to! Have a good night, bud!

The problem with getting places like Golden Corral (and other stores that are in nearby cities) to build here is that so much of their business is coming from our area that it would take business away from those other cities. The owner of the Alton and Collinsville Golden Corral did a poll at those restaurants of where the customers where coming from, and decided that opening a store in Granite City would not be feasible.

That said, I think a Costco would be fantastic!:)

Thank you, for all that commented so far. I think the main reason & few of the people here will agree with me that there is a lot of trash around & you know what I mean by trash(I don't want to say it to be acused of being a racist when I am not). If we can clean up the city & get rid of the trash, then this city can be a good city again, but if we let the trash run us in the ground, then nothing will get done.

Now who agrees with me on that one.
