Re: “Charleston police chief unveils final plan for Illumination Project

Ron I agree with the observation, but they can only hire from the pool of applicants. Most of the people you or I would want to see in that job don't want it.

Within the next twenty years, most malls will be out of business anyway.

Re: “New curfew at Northwoods Mall goes into effect Friday

Crime was vastly worse in general in all categories when we were teenagers. TigerLily75 has a short memory. This is not to say that the Northwoods Mall management is off-base; they know their clientele and are fighting a losing battle with the traditional mall concept as it is.

I'd say maybe don't fill your hiring pool with people that barely made C's in high school and are looking for a position of power to take out their personal insecurities on society.

"Well, when we were younger, we didn't cause the kind of trouble that teens these days are causing."

There have always been asshole teenagers (and asshole adults). The world is not any worse than it ever was. We just have 24/7 worldwide access to the assholery now. Plus your perspective of your own behavior as a teenager is drastically different from everyone elses perspective of your behavior. Your sentiments of nostalgia are a trick your brain is playing on you.

I'm curious. Has anyone on the staff of the City Paper ever been to Northwoods Mall? Do you even know where it is?

Re: “New curfew at Northwoods Mall goes into effect Friday

Well, when we were younger, we didn't cause the kind of trouble that teens these days are causing. Fights, guns, shoplifting loads of high cost items, cursing at & disrespecting adults.. if teens today acted like teens did 20 Yeats ago, they wouldn't need an adult escort...

Wow. This makes me want to go watch all of his movies! Have always loved him when I happened to come across one of his movies. Now, I think I will go back and see if I can find a few on purpose. Thanks Kevin. This article, as is true of your previous works, was very enjoyable to read and makes me go check out what you found interesting enough to write about. Not sure the above made sense. But to be clear, thanks! Great one again. Vicki McGillivray

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

Publix has signed to build a grocery in the WestEdge development, near where Crosby Seafood was. Should be open within 2 years. North Charleston tonight is considering a contract which includes a grocery at Shipwatch Square, McMillan and Rivers. Mt. Pleasant, with its $90,000/family income, is an attractive target market for grocery stores of all stripes. Pleased to have Publix, H/T, and Bi-Lo all on the way to my house.

spartan, if you can't comment with any better than third grade English get a tutor, and by the way, Johns Island has a Harris Teeter , a BiLo and a Food Lion, and per capita that's more groceries than Mt Pleasant has

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

"how it makes sense"? take an economics 101 course. using the vernacular of your fellow kumbaya types why not "act locally" to make a difference and take Mr. Holmes into your whitebread Pleasantville home. Oh wait, that would require real action not just spewing vomit of remorse for us all to read. I understand your guilt, I would too with all the gluttony and self interest on that side of the cooper. You're a victim of your decisions, social mobility, and "keeping up with the Jones'".

there are only two grocery stores on all of Johns Island, one of which is basically on Kiawah. How do we do it? Oh the fucking horror.

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

I'm not sure why you're under the impression that all grocery store chains are European Ran but I, for one, know that Publix is 100% American ran, owned and operated. They do a lot of good in my community but maybe that just takes someone seeing and listening to what good these businesses are doing to give back.

Re: “Denmark Vesey Was a Terrorist

Reconstruction wasn't punishment enough?
U need to read a book. Theft of life, property, liberty, food, monies, etc. is not punishment enough.
Why do you think people in the South rose up and said ENOUGH.
If it had been done like Lincoln wanted it to be done that would not have happened.

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

It's all good to write eloquently about problems. It is even better to actively solve them. I'm from Satellite Beach, Florida. We got tired of out of state, and foreign investors ruining our beaches with their condos. It's a $100 state fine to pick a sea oat, but the county issued permits to developers to bulldoze entire dune lines.

We had a lot to complain about, but it fell on deaf ears in regional government. Do like we did, organize everyone in town to buy the property. Now, market forces have no influence. We set our property aside as natural shoreline for our descendants and visitors to enjoy. You can set yours aside for a fine market.

Let me know if I can help.

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

Six grocery stores? Within the distance from Whole Foods to the Ben Sawyer Publix there is also another Publix, another Bi-Lo, and Wal-Mart as well.

But here's the rub: grocery stores operate on thin margins, I've read 1-3% in general. Commercial rent in Mount P is high, but downtown it is astronomical. Bits Of Lace is a perfect example of that. Then you have to balance out shrinkage with security and personnel. Bi-Lo on Meeting and Food Lion on upper King regularly had police presence as well as visible security details whenever I've gone there no doubt for that reason. Mount Pleasant clearly offers a favorable situation for grocers with high sales and low losses to the food deserts spanning swaths of Charleston, proper and North.

That being said; Bi-Lo has not released any statement about why they closed, and if it was shrinkage I think they'd just say so.
