More Places To Spend Our Money

It was sad to see Create-A-Hobby depart the mall; Columbia Talk was a longtime Warhammer, toy train, coin collecting customer. Now comes news that a Hollister will fill its space. It'll be interesting to see if the new store will have the same staying power as the old one. From the folks who brought you Abercombie & Fitch, Hollister is for the "trendy" teenager who likes the surfer look, always a fickle bunch. The chain recently posted a 9 percent monthly decline in same-store sales. Also coming to the Mall: clothier White House/Black Market, shoe place Clark's, another athletic footwear store called Footaction, and a Wetzel Pretel. Ann Taylor is getting a facelift.
