Any business is good

According to the Tribune, customers like the idea of a Dillards outlet. Compared to an empty storefront, one would assume that everyone would agree. However, it is still not quite as desirable as a full Dillards. Discount venues are great for bargains, but they don't help the image of the mall very much (especially with the new indoor "swap meet" across the street).

However, in this current economy, something is better than nothing and discount businesses are the hot commodity right now. So, we should all probably stick to the mantra that any business is good.

For example, a new lead generation business has opened in Mesa. Is it a major employer? Probably not, but hey, new businesses opening their doors and coming to town is welcome news from the daily reports of businesses that are closing up shop.
