We finally got a new mall in my area! It is called White Oak Village http://www.theshopsatwhiteoakvillage.com/ and it opened today. It's not a closed in mall, it is more like a strip mall. All the big anchor stores are behind the strip of smaller shops. The big anchor stores are JC Penny's, Target, Circuit City, Sam's Club, Pet Smart, Lowe's, Office Max and a locally owned grocery store called Ukrop's. If we would just get a Walmart in that area I would never have to go to Mechanicsville again (that is were all of the above stores are that I shop at the most. Mechanicsville, VA is about 10 minutes away from me, the new mall is about 5 minutes away from me. There isn't a JC Penny in that area, it is about 20 minutes away at another mall). I would have rather a Kohl's had of went into the new mall, I don't really care for JC Penny's, I prefer Kohl's, they have awesome sales). In this location of the new mall is Richmond International Airport and there was no good shopping and restaurants in the area. Now with this new mall they are putting in a bunch of new restaurants on the mall site. It's very exciting for this area and way over due! I'll be glad when everything is completed. Across the street for the mall a new Best Buy is almost ready to open. Also there is an old strip mall across the street from the Best Buy that has a Dollar Tree in it and a few other shops, the Ukrop's was over there, but they built a new one in the new mall.I wonder what will go into the old Ukrop's building? It's a pretty big building. I would love it if an Old World Market http://www.worldmarket.com/home.jsp would go in there, I love that store, but it is so far for me to go to it very often.
I want to make a meatloaf for dinner so I guess I should get off this computer and get it mixed up and in the oven. I guess I'll make some mashed potatoes to go with it and a veggie, probably corn as I always seem to serve corn with meatloaf for some reason.
