Conway boom continues with shopping growth, including Dillard's

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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
