The town has bad demographics and is too poor to warrant an upscale retailer.

I was just there a couple of weeks ago (in the Galleria). It does look completely different, a very dark and gloomy scheme, I did not like it at all.

Don't fret too much--their taxes are obscene and the image of the city hurts property valuations. Most of them are lib pretenders anyway!!

Don't criticize prices when they are based on the high cost to operate in that dump of a city. Not being able to pay their price doesn't mean that the higher price wasn't warranted for the product value offfered. They have a mark-up based on costs and what profit they need to support being able to stay in operation.

Business want to provide goods and services at a rate consistent with a competitive marketplace. Less choice won't bring the cost down if anyone would even want to open a store there. Bottom line: the city is hostile to all private business which is why there is so little commercial base. Total ghetto!!

Obama didn't cause any earthquake.

Isn't this Dave Thune's neighborhood/district? Seems a pro-business guy like Thune would be right on top of whatever is chasing business out of St. Paul. Maybe Thune and "Mayor" Coleman have a different vision for the city. One with low/no income shelters and government cheese pick-up centers as far as the eye can see, all conveniently connected by a spiffy light rail system. These irritating "rich" people with their own money and their darned businesses and jobs are slowing down the Democrat utopian dream!
bye bye bad buy

I went in there one time expecting it to be a real hardware store not just overpriced fluff that people (rich, middle or poor) don't want to waste their money on.
Seriously, consider their namesake, Drawer / door hardware,$15 -$20 per drawer pull, you have got to be kidding me, you can find better values anywhere else.
Their prices and product just didn't meet the demands of the majority of todays consumer base.
