Did Flash Mobs Kills Kaplan's On The Plaza?!?



A Kansas City end of an era that's worth a mention . . .

"Visit Kaplan's Fabrics for the 50-75% off SALE GOING ON NOW! All in stock Fabric, Patterns, Buttons and Notions! Everything must GO including Fixtures!

"After 67 years on the Country Club Plaza, we are closing our store and we thank you for your loyalty and patronage throughout all these years.

"430 Ward Parkway
Kansas City, MO 64112"
#########

Accordingly . . .

I imagine that people still use fabric just as much as they ever did . . . So . . .

IS THIS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA BIZ WORSENING BECAUSE OF VIOLENCE AND FLASH MOB TROUBLE?!?!

You decide . . .

He's right.. they've been conditioned to believe that a shitty corporate job means empowerment. Any useful skill has long since been forgotten by today's party girls.

Cheap clothes from Bangldesh and incresed rents from Highlands.
Bring on the next boring national chainstore.

Fuck I can sew better than my ole lady. These women don't know or care to sew any more.

But when you look at all who wants to spend hours making a common dress that in many places you can pull off the rack for 30 to 40 bucks.

Sly's right 6:54. You sure don't want to get the names of deep-pocketed developers or commercial property companies wrong, especially in an election year when, well you know.
Never know when the next TIF might come in handy.

U think Glen Stephenson wants a fabric shop on the plaza. Nah...that will be a upscale shoe shine shop for pimps. Pootie needs his dogs to shine for the weekend.

Nowadays chicks spend their time getting botox, piercings, implants and brazilians. Sewing stuff is like stamp collecting and bowling: ancient Ozzie & Harriet shit nobody does anymore.

Plus which, the rents dictate that nothing local will remain in the Plaza. It will be 100 percent big-brand, upscale chain stores. The Plaza already is pretty much a generic upscale shopping center. Exactly like Rodeo Drive, Waikiki, Vegas, etc etc etc. Utterly boring except for the 1% types who can afford that shit. CK lacks the one magic ingredient that makes such retail centers profitable: Japanese and Chinese tourists. That's why this is called fly-over country. Nobody comes here but the local hicks.

It's hard to find a shine shop! Welfare is easier than shining shoes.

Four black males were the last people Jobin would see in this lifetime; and it's four black males the police are looking for as suspects in the murder of Jobin. [Family hoping for answers in death of McCordsville teenager, WISHTV.com, 1-29-14]:


That’s what investigators say about the night 19-year-old Kyle Jobin of McCordsville was shot and killed outside a Lawrence gas station.
“Part of us died that night, too,” said Kyle’s dad, Joe. “He was everything to me.”

Joe Jobin and his wife Cyndi sit in their McCordsville home Wednesday night, reliving the night of Jan. 4.
Their youngest son Kyle was home on Christmas break from Vincennes University.
“It was the last part of the week, and there was a big snow storm coming,” recalled Joe Jobin. “I said Kyle, if you want to go hang out, you’ll want to do it tonight. You’ll want to be here tomorrow, because we’ll be snowed in.”
“We said ‘love you,’ and he went to spend the night at a friend’s.”
Jobin says it was 3:30 a.m., when they were awoken by a knock at the door.
“Being a service member, you hear different stories about having that call to your door. I opened up that door and I could remember my eyes going from law officer, to law officer, to chaplain. When I saw that chaplain, I knew it. Something very, very drastic had happened,” Jobin said, a retired Air Force vet.
“We jumped in the car as fast as we could, and we rushed to the hospital to spend what last little time we had with him, Luckily we had a little time. I’m not sure if he was really with us, but we got to hold his hand,” said Jobin, emotionally. “It was a terrible night and one I’ll never forget.”
Police say Kyle had gone from his friend’s house around 2:30 a.m., to get a pack of cigarettes from the Marathon gas station at 7013 E. 56th St.
Investigators say a witness saw four black men surround his car, after he came out with his cigarettes: they were knocking on windows and doors, trying to get in the car.
The witness ran to get police: when they came back, Kyle was slumped over the wheel, with a gunshot wound to the head.
His ID and debit card were still in his hand.

Kaplan's was a very fine store -shopped there for years.

Stopped due to the circling cars blasting mind numbing noise at every corner. The smelly, exposed cesspool running around it didn’t help attract business.

The Plaza management sucks, so the Plaza sucks. 67 years in business in KC, that’s a miracle. Let’s face it folks, thugs rule the streets.

Someone's pulling the "wool" over your eyes. Most people didn't even know there was a fabric shop on the Plaza.

Flash mobs causing a fabric shop to close? You're "sewing" together a false "pattern" of causation, attempting to "thread" one story into another. Get some scissors and "cut it out."

Anonymous said...

Oh wise one, 2:33. People stay in business for 67 years because no one knows where they're located.

Don't plan on ever going back to Plaza, Westport etc.
I am 52 and have watched this happen, both places used to be the spot to go. Now, a shit hole.
We all know why.

2:54 please adjust your reading glasses!!

It said, "Most People", as in most people haven't set foot into a fabric shop in 20 years or more!

Perhaps you wish to open a sewing machine, typewriter, and black & white TV store and beat the crowds back with a stick! Good luck.....because you'll definitely need it.

7:48 Perhaps the Plaza is not what it once was.
I would bet you that your Mom has been there.
Sewing machines, typewriters and old TVs are worth a lot more then that futon you sleep on.

The Plaza has the greatest sales per square foot in the metro and 44 percent of its patrons are from out of town. Sounds pretty good to me.
