They need to put in at least one parking garage, if not more than one!

An H&M and Old Navy would be very nice.

a new movie theater for adults like the one in Hyde Park where you can also dine.

I dig that idea ... anyone else want to see a cool movie theater?

I am all for a movie theater. Something that will give The Regency a run for its money. It would be especially nice if one of the theaters was designed for dining and viewing.

I vote for the 'cool' movie theater! Tired of having to leave Brandon to attend a movie in a decent theater. Still trying to find out what happened to Ruby Tuesday's - anyone know if they just closed this location or will they be reopening elsewhere in Brandon later? Am excited to finally get to eat at Red Robin! Wish we had Chevy's here.

I would like to see a Christopher and Banks and or/ CJ Banks. They are very popular in the North and I am sure the public would love them.
