"It is a sign of confidence that recovery is coming," said Bill Tysseling of the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce.

Sorry Bill, "a sign of confidence that recovery is coming" is the creation of jobs that actually produce something as well as pay a living wage.

I'll still be going over the hill or shopping online for clothes. I don't wear clothing from Marshall's, Kohl's, or Sears. Macy's in Capitola tries hard but just doesn't offer a large selection. :(

Does the county council know about this? They don't take kindly to businesses opening up in their town.

Should provide good shoplifting opportunities for the nearby illegal alien colonies/projects (funded by taxpayers, of course).
What is the obsession with illegal aliens? This article has nothing to do with them as far as I can tell. Some people have to link anything and everything with the fact that they are upset with illegals. Give it a rest. Oh, and don't get me wrong, I'm not happy with people sneaking over our border.

$20B gross in 2009 with 150000 employees, thats, um,$130,000 per employee?$2B net, thats $13000 per employee cash. sounds rather marginal.

cutting $150M last year means they cut $1000 per employee, presumably out of wages? and they plan on cutting a few $300 to $500 more per head this year..

Marshalls, schmarshalls. Big box, small box, it's all the same....s/crap made from China, Indonesia, Israel, you name it..anywhere but here.

When is America going to wake up & start MAKING something again, instead of just whining about how bad our shopping opportunities are?

How about Americans using the great Redtree property to actually start manufacturing something that will sell HERE...to our own populace, instead of having our corporations move to Mexico so they don't have to deal with environmental standards & minimum wage? When our US corporations have their corporate headquarters in the Caymen Islands so they don't have to pay their fair share of American taxes, we're heading for the s/hitter in a big way.

For those of us willing to pay $9 for a t-shirt from WalMart, we deserve to be out of work.

Come on, people, get a clue & buy local. Contact your Representatives to put an end to loop-hole tax shelters & corporate CEO greed.

and for heavens sake, stop shopping at WalMart, Marshall's, or anywhere that doesn't sell "American Made".

Where would we find these clothes that are supposedly made in the USA?
I'd rather pay for a shirt at Walmart,than an overpriced garment from Saks.
I don't know where you buy your clothes that are made local.

Thanks for the information, but I don't want to be stuck at buying clothes at one store with styles that I don't like and especially if it's downtown. I think I'll check out Marshalls since I don't want to drive over the hill to shop and I like bargains.

Make me!

If this county wants local money to stay in the area then it needs to realize that not all of us shop at stores like Ross, Sears, Marshalls, Kohls and Sears.

Bottome line, moron.
