Everyone seemed so excited last week to find out that HomeGoods was going to be opening their doors at the Mesa Mall. Which had us thinking about what else should be added to our hometown mall. Although when we asked the question to you on our Facebook page it seemed very easy as to what most people want to see pop up at the Mesa Mall next, a sporting goods store.

We did get quite a few other answers including:

  • Dave and Busters
  • The Cheesecake Factory
  • Trader Joe's
  • Whole Foods
  • Hastings (to come back)
  • Cracker Barrel

There were thirteen people that all agreed that what we really need next is a sporting good store. The discussion then started online because we already have a Big 5 Sporting Goods store but many people said they don't have a big enough selection and with the number of sports now being played in the Grand Valley by kids and adults we need a bigger store with a wider selection.

There was another very good point that was brought up around Amazon not being a good alternative to a sporting goods store here in town because lots of times parents need to get the equipment or a different size of something and Amazon cannot yet deliver immediately.

While The Cheesecake Factory sounds amazing to me as a new addition to the Mesa Mall it would not help my attempts at working out more to try to get in better shape. So, I am all on board with another sporting goods store in town.

Any other ideas you have that would be a perfect addition to the Mesa Mall?
