    I do hope these new stores have done their homework before committing to the AV Mall. I believe the larger stores in the mall profits are very low
    and are carrying less than before. Jobs in the AV are slim to none, and the strong possiblity of Defense layoffs will make a domino effect to the paying customers to those high priced stores. I wish them luck.

      Years of republican opposition to union workers, outsourcing of jobs,illegal immigration filling low-skill, low-paid jobs, stagnant wages and a general decimation of the middle class means what?

      Consumers have fewer dollars to spend, so how can anything but Walmarts and cheap products be widely available.

      It’s called a downward spiral. If teachers, police, firefighters and others who are the target of conservative wage and benefit cuts, how do they expect those same people to have the money to support a thriving economy?

      Did the Bush tax cuts for the middle class make anyone richer in the last 10 years? But, that is the main drumbeat of the GOP and here we are.

      These stores at the Mall that are cutting back are not the problem but the symptom.

        i hope it works out for you and your family.however i am disappointed to see yet another business go to palmdale. i hate to say it but most of the posts on this website are dead on criticisms of the state of businesses and social life in the av. palmdale does have everything,only stuff in lancaster is walmart and warehouses. lanacster blvd isnt bad but cmon 2 tattoo shops and 2 juice bars on the same block?then i hear those businesses may see an increase in taxes or rent(not sure maybe a rumor) to pay for security? when the police station is right there?not fair to the small business owners who supply jobs to the i guess the bird noises arent working?

    We are so proud to be part of the AV mall that continues to bring high end stores that the Antelope Vally shoppers have been dreaming about for a long time. It’s going to get even better this spring when we will hear the BIG announcement that will open up a whole new focus and envy. Hold on its coming.

      Good work, Mayor Ledford. You are always teasing us with surprises and they turn out pretty good.

      I noticed that 3 people [Disliked] your comment. Why? I can’t imagine.

      But, I got ya beat on the [Dislikes]. I can already smell some coming as I write this.

      It’s been suggested here that staff of the City of Lancaster clicks many of the [Dislikes] here, so I’m guessing that’s the source of those 3.

        I’ll take shopping at the AV Mall over the BLVD any day of the week. They have products that I want, better restaurants, better parking, a climate controlled environment, and I don’t have to pay pan handlers every 20 steps. I enjoy the BLVD for a good event and LPAC is a very nice venue. I guess the next time I’ll be visiting the BLVD is when I decide to get my next tattoo. They’ve got some good parlors there.

          I had to go to Lancaster last Sunday afternoon for something, so I drove down the BLVD.

          It was bleak. Cold and windy. Was I in Michigan?

          Only a couple of pedestrians, windblown litter and leaves.

          Plus, on a Sunday afternoon, several of the restaurants were closed. What?

          I wonder if there is only a limited number of people who visit the BLVD on a typical day without an event and each time a restaurant opens it takes business from the other restaurants. There is one place which, I swear, is less busy since the BLVD was redone. It used to be really crowded at lunchtime.

          Geez, must there be such a rivalry between Lancaster and Palmdale?!? I for one shop in both cities and love the improved Lancaster Blvd and welcome more high end stores at the AV Mall…..believe it or not there is money in the AV, not all “ghetto” like so many claim….why do people have to be so negative?! The antelope valley as a whole has had many improvements in the last 20 year’s or so….my biggest complaint is the prison and the undesirables it brings :(

      Shop Palmdale until “we know who” stops his crusade .Did go to the Trophy Shop on Ave K to buy a T-shirt to support Lancaster High Oath program to build Jarrod a new home,but that is all I will buy in Lancaster.

    I understand that it’s nice to have new things. But please consider buying gently used and often new with tags, high end brands (like all the above mentioned) on ebay and other resale sites.

    As an example in the last year I got a $200 pair of Uggs (made in New Zealand not China) for $50-they were new in their box, a pair of Doc Marten boots for $4 (yes FOUR dollars), made in England, not China in perfect condition and multiple pairs of Levis jeans (US made) for $10-20 a pair.

    If you’re patient and know what you’re looking for sites like ebay, etsy, yardseller and will rock your world.

    The maul (any maul) is horrible! The clothes, shoes and accessories are cheaply made and overpriced. I know, sadly I was a buyer for one of the more popular teen oriented stores and you would be horrified at the profit margin some of these companies make. A 5 cent sticker selling for $3. Just wrong.

    I know I didn’t address the whole jobs issue but I HAD to address the craptasticness of mass produced s***.

      Yeah sure, you betcha.;) Support the shop lifters who are selling their loot on ebay and other websites including Facebook.. I think we had a discussion about that last week. (Bought for $500 will sell for $200) If it sounds too good to be true, it’s either a fake or it’s stolen.

      • Mick
        January 30, 2013 at 10:33 am

        Not true, but you’re entitled to your opinion. There are many reputable sellers on ebay and other sites who just have too much stuff! Not everyone is a thief or looking to rip someone off, jeez. No wonder the world is going to hell in a hand basket with such mean spirited attitudes out there.

        Or you can always buy hand made from small independent people but of course that just doesn’t have the same appeal as tacky, mass produced crap that everyone else is wearing.

          To mark, Usay there are so many mean spirited people, well FYI you are just as mean spirited for bad mouthing stores and their products. everyone has their own preferences on where to shop. its not fair for you to put bad comments out about them. Also ebay and other sites just like them have pros and cons for shoppimg with them, but regardless everyone is just trying to make a living. Now whether or not it is legit and in the honest way is on them. they will have to live with the consequences of their actions. But remember to talk negatively about someone or something is just not a good quality to portray.

            January 30, 2013 at 12:59 pm

            William, yes what you said. Usay was and you know what happened to him. :( bad guy

            January 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

            I wasn’t “bad mouthing” a store, I was trying to make the point that much of the mass produced stuff out there is poorly made, over priced and the people who make it are mistreated and often abused. And that being suspicious of everyone isn’t necessarily right either.

            Obviously I don’t know who is selling “stolen” goods on ebay or anywhere else, what I do know is that I myself have sold some very high dollar items for well below their value. Many stores don’t accept returns after a certain amount of time has passed, sometimes I’ve had to have the latest trendy thing and then got tired of it or never ended up using it so a year or two later, I sell it for a lot less because the trend has passed. Or I’ve been given nice things by friends and relatives (who I know for a fact didn’t steal the item), that just isn’t me and I have no receipt or even know where the item came from.

            As for being mean spirited, I don’t really understand the personal attack…I’m entitled to my opinion just like you are, that doesn’t make me mean spirited. I’ve worked both sides of the retail fence and I’m telling it how I saw it. That’s all. Have a nice day.

            January 30, 2013 at 2:33 pm

            @Gladys. When I saw it, I knew what it meant but it sounded familiar- “Usay. Usay”. Where have I heard that before?

        • Gladys
          January 30, 2013 at 12:55 pm

          Of course Mick, there are many reputable sellers on ebay. However, when they have new items with tags in the box, paid $200 and they are selling for $50, you might wanna ask yourself, WHY? Your UGGs for instance, could have been returned to any store that sells UGGs for credit or exchange. That’s the way real UGGs roll. Ebay and many other online spots are selling the things stolen by rings of thieves.
          There is saving money…but, at what cost? When you buy real products from a real store, they have a return policy, and you are not supporting some gang of thieves.
          I agree that buying homemade goods is a great way to help support local. I also try to buy only MADE IN USA products and food grown in america.

    Hopefully Buckle doesn’t ghetto down this store like so many other companies that come to our Mall(Macy’s). It would be nice to have a place where a guy can get a nice pair of jeans that aren’t covered in useless embellishments and fake wear marks.
    Though the jobs are welcomed I don’t know how many people are going to pay $100+ for a pair of jeans that cost $12 to make in China. Do any stores around here even sell jeans made in U.S.A.?

    • Les
      January 29, 2013 at 3:43 pm

      True Religion is one of the more common Made in the USA brands but there are many more. There’s Rock and Republic, 7 for All Mankind just have to look a little harder and sometimes pay a little more. But then again you get what you pay for.

      • Adam Chant
        January 30, 2013 at 4:24 pm

        Les, keep up with the tags.. most of those brands you mentioned no longer make American made jeans. And even in some cases they are using imported fabric that is only final assembled in the U.S.A. There is only a little regulation on what qualifies for a “Made in the U.S.A.” tag to be placed on a piece of apparel.
        Generally only a pair of jeans retailing for more than $220 is worth manufacturing in the U.S.A. and even then there are questions about how much of it is actually U.S.A. Buckle only carries a couple of styles of jeans over $200 a pair so it’s not likely that they have much in the way of section for real made in U.S.A. jeans.
        True Religion and 7 have been cut in Mexico and final assembled in USA for years now. This is even beginning to turn up a lot more “Made in Mexico” tags as styles change and the ‘finishing’ work doesn’t qualify as enough to meet the “Made in USA” requirement.

        Maybe if it was White Oak, Cone Mills Selvage Denim then we would be talking about some real Made in USA jeans, but over embellished pockets and foe wear whiskers doesn’t make a pair of jeans worth my time when the tag on the back says “Made in China” or “Made in Mexico”.

        I know my denim.. and I really know my made in America products.. anyone who knows me can attest to being schooled when the discussion of denim or made in U.S.A. comes up..
        Tellason Raw selvage denim from cone mills white oak plant in north Carolina. Literally the same vintage fly-shuttle looms that made denim the right way.. selvage!
        Now that is a jean.. 100% made in U.S.A.
