The former Brookdale Mall, now called Shingle Creek Crossing, has been reinvented as several buildings scattered over the entire Brookdale site. The mall is once again filling up with tenants — a shoe store, two wireless stores, a few restaurants.
What I would like to see is a Schmitt Music outlet, a comic book store, a thrift shop, a gallery, a tea shop.
I am assuming, of course, that I will soon be employed and I will be ready and able to fuel the economy.
The remnant of the old Brookdale soon will be torn down to make way for a four-sided strip mall, presumably with so many stores offering such varied merchandise that even the most abstinent non-shopper will not be able to resist.
