Until crime goes down, I really don’t see how the Red Bird Mall redevelopment can be successful. There are numerous vacant storefronts surrounding Red Bird Mall. I guess the Walmart on Wheatland (across from Charlton Methodist) will be another.
I guess this story was a nail in the coffin for this location.

I must have spent double my usual grocery shopping time in here just browsing all the new stuff. If that was their goal, they succeeded. Take advantage of all the free samples during the opening!

Perhaps it is because of the proximity to the AAC and they want to appear as an extension of the Victory Park area? If so, I'm all for that, as this part of town really needs some more cohesion.
