    I’m glad they’re doing something with that space rather than keeping it empty for ever and ever. Seems like Trussville has too much unoccupied retail in it’s vicinity which should be put to better and more productive use.

    Ross has bargains but you have to go regularly to find bargains in Hoover.

    So glad I live in the country now. Trussville way to busy for me.

    Right next door to Marshall’s doesn’t make much since to me. Trussville has way too many of the same type stores in my opinion. How about a party city Trussville? Come on!

    They have six empty stores at the pinnacle!!!! And now there building a new mall that they cannot even feel???? And why???? They have way to many empty retail spaces now as it is!!!!

    How will Ross hurt anything? It doesn’t hurt Hoover-are y’all comfortable shopping there or is the proximity of such a low class establishment too dirty for you?

    As grown women, I’d hope you’d look at this and clearly see that saying things like adding a Green Acres , Exotic Wings and Hair show like it’s a bad thing really paints you to look like some entitled racists-the type who’s holier than thou attitudes make everyone think Trussville is full of snobs. If you want to call out primarily black owned businesses like you’re too good for them, do that trashy mess on your own page-not a public one.

    The space where this business is going to be was occupied, the previous businesses were relocated in order to allow for expansion for this Ross to be opened in this location.

    Valerie, I personally cannot wait!

    I love the stores at the Pinnacle & would love to frequent the businesses there, unfortunately I would rather lick a foot than navigate through the traffic nightmare required to get to this location, particularly during the work week.

  23. 46

    Christopher Card

    I know. However I also know that there have been several other stores that have gone out of business in that same area, with nothing to replace them. Except for rent signs. So yeah. That part of Trussville needs a shot in the arm! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Kay Fochtmann Mickel

    Thank you, Amanda. Several of you are friends of good, truly Christian friends of mine. I think they would be embarrassed to see these negative, classless, racist statements come out of your mouths. I can only imagine your sorority like behavior behind closed doors.

    Debbie, I feel ya. Traffic is a nightmare.

    Amanda Grissom Williams

    You’re welcome Kay and thank you for also speaking up. I am ashamed that grown women this day and age feel like this sort of speech is ok anywhere at anytime and it seems doubly sad to me to see it on a public page where business owners, employers, etc can see what you say.

    I think it would be easier to park on the side of the interstate and climb the big wall to get up there.😉

    Rose Herring Cobb

    Really Amanda? I’ve lived in Trussville my entire life and was one of the very few residents here that fully supported Trussville having its own thrift store when you all were afraid it would “destruct the image” of the community and mimic Centerpoint. It makes no difference to me where you shop, but you won’t catch me anywhere near that Walmart shopping center so long as people are getting their cars broken into at the movie theater in broad daylight (like my husband) or continue getting arrested for shoplifting.

    Someone say Exotic wings is opening in Trussville???? I’m 100% in support!

  31. 57

    Nick Pearson

    Didn’t Target have some theftkidnapping issues 🤔. Any particular store is not going to increase or reduce crime in an area.

    The chances of you being robbed are pretty small. I mean do people think this doesn’t happen in Mountain Brook or Hoover?

  32. 58

    Amanda Grissom Williams

    I supported the thrift store as well, so let’s not lump me in with “you all”, (whoever they are).

    What does the current state of that shopping center have to do with adding a Citi Trends and Exotic Wings? Or a Ross for that matter?

    If you already won’t shop there, then why feel the need to comment here at all?

    Why pick out primarily black owned businesses to imply that it’ll make it that worse? Your comments were unnecessary and laced with racist undertones, plain and simple.

    If I were you, I’d delete the whole comment thread you started here and hope no one else you may know, go to church with, work with, etc see it lest they see it the same way I (and a few others apparently) have.
