Not a good sign for the economy. I feel another downturn as does Wall Street. Corporate profits are down, Boeing Defense lays off 2,000 more the day after the election. This is not good..

Trolley Square was most vibrant when it was quirky and local. After being bought by chain mall developers, its demise was slow - but steady.
I hope someone takes over and revamps it back to its 70's flavor as an entertainment, restaurant and local business center

I totally agree with Counter Intelligence with one change. Trolley Square needs to be the funky place it used to be, but it needs to be 21st century funky, whatever that is. The 70s are long gone, aren't they? The outside, national players want everything to fit into a well established plan. The funky stuff comes and goes, but it does keep coming and it needs a place to be. Trolley is that place. As the song goes, and taking a little license, 'play that funky music right, retailers, play that music right'.

I wonder if BOA would let me spend there money to get it profitable. How about it Bank of America, if you are game, I am.

BOA needs to just pay back its depositors, which of course are backed by the american tax payer.

Just stop priming the pump already and see if they can prosper on their own.

Tired of the too big to fail mentality. Let the chips fall where they may and get back to basics.

Hey Fitz, can I be your co-manager? Lets start by filling up the absolutely empty retail space, and bring back a movie theater? We can follow that up by adding some first class restaurants and clubs, and bring back the historic touches that made the mall so great. Where have all the trolley cars gone?
