Oh yes: whenever I find myself in need of a tie or a belt, I hop a plane to L.A., NYC, Seattle, or Boston. And I like to visit Hong Kong whenever I'm in the mood for a new suit. (sarcasm off) The trouble with people pointing their noses straight up is that nostril views are unbecoming.

" It is an exciting place to just meander about and then grab a bite to eat. "

Actually that roughly was my experience there. It's quite a nice looking place, I meandered around for a while looking for a particular item, found no store sold any of that type, determined this mall was generally useless, and then grabbed a bite to eat (except elsewhere since I had prior dinner plans with friends but I trust that City Creek at least has decent food options). So so far I've bought a total of $0.00 from there.

Supporting Syrian refugees or other impoverished people around the world is a noble goal. From an individual perspective, you may be right in thinking it is more noble to support such causes than it is to go shopping, particularly for higher end goods. From the supplier's perspective, they need to invest in income generating ventures in order to assure a continued flow of cash that will allow them to do good in the world.

City Creek is a for Profit Venture... meaning that that for every dollar put in, more than one dollar will come out. Long term, this means that more money, not less, will be available for other causes the church wishes to put its resources into. Hope that helps.

"That corner is also the home of The Chalk Garden, locally owned high-end fashion and jewelry that first made its name in Trolley Square more than three decades ago and opened during the past year."

In the 1960s, I remember shopping at The Chalk Garden located on East South Temple. It was a high-end shoe store. When was Trolley Square developed? I thought it was in the 1970s.

Chango: Hutterite knows exactly how it works. And which buttons to push. That's Hutterite.
