Conway business leaders gathered last night for updates on big local development projects, including the Central Landing shopping center. Arkansas Business reports here.

Twitter last night lit up with local boosters talking about the developments, which is to include, at Central Landing, a Dillard's department store. The Lewis Crossing shopping center will include Sam's Club, Bed, Bath and Beyond, PetCo, and Dollar Tree.

Good for Conway. Not so good for Little Rock, where sales tax revenues are already falling far short of anticipated levels from a city sales tax increase. More than ever, Conway residents need not make the trip down the freeway to Little Rock to shop.

Ah, but if they do they can gas up at a mega-convenience store and grab a 40-ounce Miller Lite at 12th and University. There's some economic development for you.

Here's the news release announcing Dillard's as an anchor for Central Landing.
