Of course. A living wage in SANTA FE is the cause of all SIXTY FOUR Shoe Pavilion store closings across the western part of the COUNTRY.

Maybe the SANTA FE living wage is also causing the largest decline in new car sales in this country since World War II.

Maybe the SANTA FE living wage is causing Circuit City to close 150 of its stores across the country. Yea, thats it, thats the ticket.

Try asking the mayor of SANTA FE about that!!!

The article states, "Shoe Pavilion, based in Sherman Oaks, Calif., has started going-out-of business sales at its 64 stores, all in the Western part of the country."

So, from the sounds of it, this has absolutely nothing to do with the minimum wage in Santa Fe. Unless, of course, you have some information on how the Santa Fe Store minimum wage brought down the whole chain of 64 locations. I sort of doubt it.

Mervyn's going out of business and into bankruptcy proceedings probably also has nothing to do with the minimum wage at one of their 149 stores. It is amazing how ones political beliefs color ones economic perceptions. Maybe after the election you will have some time to cool off and regain your senses.

Ask the mayor if the SANTA FE living wage has anything to do with this..........

Dont blame the economy, knuckleheads! More like poor management, over-leverage, and poor performance. People have needed about the same amount of shoes over the past 65 years, yes? Free markets reward the performers and punish the under-performers. Now if we could only force Qwest out of business!!

I already dumped 4 Qwest phone lines. Thanks to the PRC and Loop De Averaging Tax. Phone bill was $220.00 a month, with $110.00 of it was taxes.
Hey PRC you need more blockheads!

The mall has the most distasteful name ever:'The Santa Fe Place', before it was called,'The Villa Linda Mall'. That had a ring to it, it had appeal, and it had an inviting call to it. But 'The Santa Fe Place' it's tasteless to say the least!
I believe they could do much better than that and if not call upon some elementary school children and surely they can come up with a better name!

Good. Never been in there. Bad service is universal in SF.

It's too bad, sometimes I found cool shoes there that were my size. Try finding size 13 shoes in this city of midgets, I dare you!

Your right! Bad service is universal in Santa Fe, albeit there are a few exceptions and they are locally owned merchants. But what about all these large businesses? Service sucks at HomeDepot, Lowes, Walmart, Kmart. I would be surprised if REI makes it although they spend lots of time training their employees to be kind and courteous. HMMM, training employees? What a concept!

The local Santa Fe Economic unit with the City is doing nothing to help local business. I had a friend want to start a busines in SF and they never returned his several phone calls.

I was just thrown out of this mall tonight. I bought dinner, sat down, ate a couple of bites and security told me I had to leave now! They throw everyone out at 6 pm on Sunday. Rude!

I have discovered that this is in fact the policy of mall management.

I am never going back to this mall. I hope they go bankrupt.
