    We were out there this weekend and they're clearly doing something fairly extensive to the old Express/Rothschild's location (okay, that latter reference dates me). They're pulling out walls down to the metal studs and old brick.

    I believe it's going to be a 2-level Forever 21.

    Agree. They need REAL upscale signage, like the Galleria in Dallas and the street signage near the Galleria in Houston.

    Pulled as in had one before the committee and "pulled" it off the table or is "pulling" for a space to build in the mall?

    I meant they filed for one today and they are usually granted within a day or two.

    When I was at the mall yesterday I noticed that the little sushi stand was gone. Any idea if it's gone for good? I hope not as they had pretty tasty sushi.

    Yes, I can say, from an extremely reliable source, that Sara Sara Cupcakes plans to enter a retail space in Penn Square Mall at some point in 2013. Eventually, Penn Square Mall will be expanding their Food Court as well to include the existing Starbucks location, and Sara Sara will be a part of that expansion. But, Sara Sara will be in the mall long before the expansion in an interim location while the expansion of the food court goes.

    Don't expect a Sak's in OKC any time soon, they are closing a couple of stores including the Austin location in The Arboretum and one in a Chicago burb.

    Wow surprised about the Saks in Austin. I could see the Tulsa store being closed before Austin? I do not see Saks opening a full fledged department store in OKC in the near future. However saw today in the DO that upscale store Michael Kors will be opening shop in Penn Square. I also saw where L'Occitane will be opening a store in Penn Square. It appears that slowly PS is attracting more upscale tenants.

    On the Journal Record's Web site today was this: "High-end retailers including Michal Kors Lifestyle and L’Occitane En Provence, along with local favorite Sara Sara Cupcakes are among some of the new stores coming to Penn Square Mall as part of a makeover of the shopping center that will cost at least $5.3 million."

    This thread has been dormant since May except for recent posts by BlueDog & Progressive - anybody have an update?

    That's always one of my pet peeves about many posters. Sometimes I think I'm just beating my head against the wall when I protest about it.

    Penn Square is big enough to be a truly upscale mall. They would just need to somehow nudge out downscale tenants like Payless. Northpark Mall in Dallas doesn't have Payless and I think its really a waste of space at Penn Square.

    The Arboretum in Austin has had many retailers move over to The Domain, at one time Saks was slated to move to the Phase 3 retail portion close to where Nordstrom was supposed to be located. The last time that I was there (last fall) there were many empty store fronts. We did a project for a pharmaceutical company in Domain 5 because all of their manufacturing area (metal building added onto the main Domain 5 building back when it was an IBM manufacturing campus) was slated to be the parking garage between Saks and Nordstrom. They were supposed to be moved by December 2009, when the Phase 3 portion was put on hold, they put their move on hold and ultimately terminated the lease on their new facility. I heard right before I moved to Denver that it might be coming back which meant Phase 3 was maybe starting back up.

    That kinda surprises me. Thought the Cupcake fad had already started to fade....

    You know speaking of high-end stores, a Gucci store would be nice. What would be even better is if a Galleria was built somewhere in or near downtown and they placed a Gucci store there.

    It seems people just aren't as open about it as they used to be. I don't think the fad is fading, it's just become very silent until you start talking with a married couple, it always finds a way to show itself if you talk to a married couple longer than 45 seconds.

    Not sure what there is to be "closed" about. It's a cupcake, I think you are correct though, the fad hasn't faded. It's just become "normal". Like the Devon tower, people have gotten used to it, so talk about it isn't as much as when it first started getting going.

    Most people call it 'dry sense of humor'. lol glad you got my point through all that jibberish though.
