SHOCK!!! TIFFANY & CO. QUITS COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA & ABANDONS KANSAS CITY!!!

In much the same way that Breakfast at Tiffany's is just a sad, kinda racist story about an old hooker. Today we're greeted with another reality check . . .

TIFFANY & CO CALLS IT QUITS ON COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA!!!

Here's the word dutifully stolen quoted from another blog . . .

“The Kansas City community has welcomed Tiffany & Co. since our arrival at Country Club Plaza. As of January 31, 2021, we will be closing this store location. We thank our clients for their loyal support. ...”

They directed customers to Tiffany.com, as well as to their closest brick-and-mortar store in St. Louis, but declined further comment.

Pretty sure that last line is just a slap in the face to KCMO civic pride after local politicos basically sanctioned "mostly peaceful" protest son The Plaza.

Well, if you can afford to buy from Tiffany you can just hop in your private Jet and fly to New York or someplace civilized to do your shopping.

When the city decided to screw Highwoods they sold to an owner specializing in malls and retail strips. The mayor and council officially killed the Plaza this year allowing protests to take over. People with resources decided to take their money to Johnson County. In the very near future people will decide to move back to the suburbs and away from the shit hole being created by the inept group of people running Kansas City and Jackson County. It won’t be called white flight, it will be however a flight of anyone capable of moving.

That is news. I thought they were a fixture on the Plaza. I was equally shocked when St. John’s left The Plaza too.

They still got the hood run sports apparel store. It's all good!

@12:00, the Nichols Grandkids killed the Plaza when they went off to Florida to play "Real Estate" with the Big Boys.

They wound up losing the Plaza to Highwoods when they couldn't keep with demands for additional funding of various Developments going on in Florida and Georgia, and Highwoods turned the unique Plaza into just another boring suburban Mall, only one with a lousy HVAC System.

It's been steadily declining ever since, with a decreasing attendance and n increasing rate of criminal activity (KCPD instead of Plaza Security = coddling in place of ass kicking), and mediocre "I can get that anywhere" restaurants and shops.

The rampaging "Urban Yutes" and "BLM Protestors" were merely the last straw.

But don't worry, the Nichols Grandkids are still doing fine, the few of them who still visit the Kansas City Metro every five or ten years anyway.

Man that POS Mayor is ruining this town right and left. See what happens when you let the black race take over your streets, all that was good disappears forever.

Smart move on their part. When you have a mayor that is as racist and trashy as Quinton Lucas and a city who approves of riots and looting, what would anyone expect descent merchants to do? Eddie Bauer left for the same reasons and Nordstrom broke their contract for the same reasons. I wonder if the moron Emanuel Cleaver's comment was the straw that broke the camels's back. Cleaver is so stupid he actually thinks AMEN has something to do with gender.

Sounds to me like the “Nichols grandkids” were smart to get out of KC before it became such a shitbox.
As for Tiffany leaving, anyone that thinks KC is such a vibrant place (Go4KC, CHUD guy, Geezer Hater, Weird guy), why is it that STL can support high-end shopping (Saks, Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, etc), but KC can’t?

YOU MUST READ WHAT THIS GUY said...


Seeing a lot of "Nichols grandkids already forsook the Plaza".

But none of those claims connect the dots to its current problems, or to losing Tiffany's.

Meanwhile, actual facts fill the void those non sequiturs left behind. IT'S THE PROTESTS, STUPID. THE STUPID PROTESTS. LED BY STUPID PEOPLE. WHO NOW HAVE FEWER JOBS OPPORTUNITIES.

To those of you commenting racist shit like “make wave for weave shop” or “shaniqua’s hair and nail salon coming through”, that’s why you stay commenting anonymous right? Not bold enough to reveal your name? Labeling people as BLM protesters and urban yutes? I can’t wait for your generation to be wiped out with all your shitty racist mentality. You all can suck a dick.

you may be right tony, that milquetoast sendoff - that is muted, baby. there would normally be insincere nonsense about thanking the city in general but they specifically only thanked "our loyal clients." not that it matters, but, still.

tiffany's sold to a french firm. they've likely never heard of kansas city, but they're sentimentally attached to st. louis.

Actually, they're going to focus on where the money is now: China.

Got to get the streetcar to the Plaza. That is only thing that will save it πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

Cannot wait to see 1:15’s generation wiped out with their lack of survival instinct. Their bodies will be stacked like cordwood and burned to make way for the new masters who do not have qualms about being called things like racist or sexist or homophobes. Get ready for the new dark ages as the civilization you assumed was permanent comes crashing down.

You can eat a big bag of wart ridden dicks.

Even before the utter idiocracy of last summer, there was a nice shootout down there.

Middle of the day on a Wednesday by Shake Shack.

I also remember people running wild. Smashing things and terrorizing outdoor diners.

So yeah, so rayciss!!

Ha ha ha. Hope you like helicopters.

Shock. Not a shock. All upscale retailers will flee the new ghetto on flush creek before this is over. Thanks, Boy Blunder and Wrecks Archer. You guys are the best!

Can't wait to see how the black "improve" the plaza." This should be a hoot.

Highwoods is to blame. They've substituted accessible for unique and interesting. it doesn't matter what kind of architecture you put on a Forever 21 - it's still a Forever 21. You get mall traffic when you have mall shops. Independence Center anyone? It will take local ownership and local interest to reincarnate the area into the gem it's been. it takes a lot more effort than the mall formula Highwoods knows.

As for Tiffany's, they're brand lost the luster long ago. The little blue box is about as special as a Kay's jewelry bag. Their brand no longer commands the premium it used to. This is good news for Tivol - an actual KC company and family that continues to thrive!

LOL Black super power is to destroy and ruin everything nice.

Whites without blacks is civilization.

Blacks with out whites is filth, chaos, destruction, and starvation.

KC Nicholas knew what he was doing when he attempted to segregated the city. Not a pretty answer but one that is being proved correct by the those he knew were not going to participate in polite, civil society. Independence Mall is next, then Oak Park. Thanks to section 8 housing attempting hold the savages hands we will end up with a violent city full of empty buildings. As congress ass Cleavage said "Awomen", what great example of how stupid blacks are.

Aww stfu you whiny, racist pos. The Plaza has been dying for years. They allowed the black criminal element to take it over and now no upstanding citizen feels safe there anymore. Lucas has turned Westport into another dangerous and murderous shithole as well. Lucas and his sycophants are utter trash.

Bri said...

Go burn, loot and murder. That’s all you know. Scumbag criminal.

And murder.

The puffed up, smirking, drunken empty suit of a mayor is worse than Cleaver even.

Nowhere in their post did they say anything about Tiffany’s opening a place in JOCO!! They are speaking of the merchants leaving because of the negative happenings. So, you’re the one who doesn’t make any sense! Perhaps you should take some time and brush up on your reading comprehension skills instead of ignorant trolling. πŸ™„ It isn’t very becoming of you. ✌️
