Soooo true!

Macy's was nothing but a Government department store. St Paul wasted $9,000,000 on a direct subsidy that kept the doors open.

Nobody shops downtown. Who wants to drive into a dirty city, park in a criminal infested parking ramp, tolerate sidewalks infested with more criminals who want to sell you drugs or mug you, buy stuff and then worry about making it back o your car without being mugged or raped in the parking ramp while you attempt to load your items into the car. AND THEN do it all over to return stuff.

Meanwhile most normal famlies live in the suburbs that are served by clean safe well lit shopping malls that don't even allow young kids to enter the malls unless adults are with them.

Maybe the Met Council needs expansion space, they will be adding probably 10,000 employees now that the Legislature and Governor are DFL?
