All Good: Westwood, Kansas '47' Swagger Jacking KCMO 39th Street Local Love?!?

The gas station BBQ place used our blog community name for inspiration a few years back . . . Now, our KICK-ASS blog community notices that they're stealing a great deal of marketing ideas from 39th Street. Nevertheless, it's all good because both local places deserve a visit and there's room for both to succeed:

47th Street corridor re-brands itself to "The 47"

WESTWOOD, Kan. - 47th Street on the Kansas side of Kansas City is re-branding itself, and the businesses along the corridor will call themselves "The 47." The hope is to create an identity and a destination spot for people looking to eat and shop.

The next branding will be Merriam Blvd. It will now be known as "MB". It's been transformed from strip malls, dive bars, and light industrial to a hip modern strip mall, dive bar, light industrial street with the new branding. Incredible what marketing will do. MB....live the lifestyle....buy a coaster....get a tattoo....

The crack-pot team of marketing gurus is working on new branding for Neiman Rd between 75th and Shawnee Mission Pkwy next. Afterwards, they'll be branding the strip malls on 75th street and I-35.

Remember when KCMO rebranded 47th Cleaver 2? What a bad look that persists to this day

Is this Westwood's attempt to be semi-urban hip and cool? Yeah - not so much. I think this neighborhood wants the "cool factor" and character of Brookside with a couple of strip malls and converted gas stations. They do have an elementary school that is viable but that'll change soon when it's torn down and expanded on the old radio station property. Expanded boundaries moving west the school will be dumped with Shawnee Mission North district and you'll see the for sale signs go up fast. The neighborhood will scream about the change. They'll want to stay in the East district. Their may even be a lawsuit. Once they fail at the fight "The 47" signs will turn into "Space available, for rent"
