Aging Southdale just received a multimillion-dollar face-lift, and more change is coming. But is it enough to turn back the clock?

I suggest linking Galleria and Southdale by a skyway with a moving walkway (like at the airport) over 69th Street. It is a win-win for both centers. Galleria is short on parking space and can't expand their retail footprint much more on that site. Southdale does have parking and room for expansion on their site. I would definitely go to this new concept center as an alternative to the Mall of America which really is more of a tourist destination.

I live walking distance from Southdale, but rarely shop there because there is really no reason to do so. I am a middle-aged dad, so I don't care about the latest fashion brands, etc. I don't even know what a "white market" or a "lucky shop" is supposed to be! Perhaps that is what the teeny-boppers want, but last time I checked they don't have a ton of disposable income. We do go to the movie theater a couple of times a year, and to the Apple store occasionally, but otherwise there's nothing at Southdale for us.

The days of the Dales is over. There was not as much retail around during their heyday. Times have changed. There is a Target, Kohls, Walmart on every corner, not to mention the internet.
