Some people embrace change . . . they look forward to it . . . it’s a new adventure for them – everyday. Some people avoid change . . . stay the course . . . don’t rock the boat. Change happens – constantly, it’s inevitable.
There are lots of changes happening around here.
First, road construction outside the mall. Our street is now multilanes with a center turn lane. New macadam, fresh painted lines . . . sidewalks! It surely does not look the same. But what a great improvement!
Then, inside the mall. The old hard-to-walk-on faux brick floor is gone and is now nicely carpeted. Refinished pillars, new lighting, paint and signage . . . finishing touches will soon be done. It surely does not look the same. But what a great improvement!
Now, JC Penney is moving – just down the way a bit. A new, bigger, brighter store for them . . . an exciting time for all involved! We’re anxiously anticipating their reopening the beginning of October. We know it will not look the same and will be a great improvement!
But, for the almost 10 years we’ve been in the mall, JC Penney has been our neighbor, our landmark . . . “we’re in the Penney’s corridor” . . . “yes, we’re in the mall just outside Penney’s”.
It’s just not going to be the same!
