The shopping center still stands for now

I don't know if Weingarten ever got their sewer disconnect permit business straightened out, but as of yesterday afternoon at least, the River Oaks Shopping Center was the same as it was earlier this week. Basically, there's some heavy equipment sitting around, presumably to do the sewer line work, but it's all done nothing but sit. And given the torrential rains of yesterday, I'm not expecting any change in that any time soon.

Meanwhile, the Facebook group I Will Not Shop At The West Gray Barnes & Noble continues to grow, with 341 members as of this morning. Can we hit 500? I don't see why not. Come join, it's not too late to make your feelings known.

Do you know if anybody at B&N corporate is aware of the Facebook group? I think it's worth bringing it to their attention.

I'm told that B&N has been generally following developments, and is aware of public opinion. Whether that means they know about this particular effort, I couldn't say. Maybe I should try to make sure they know about it. Couldn't hurt.
