Greed is killing the Grove
A major problem here is that the Grove is turning into the fiefdom of a few major players. Greedy players. The land and businesses are owned by just a few companies/landlords. Someone needs to tell these guys that rents need to be lowered and then businesses will come. It's not 1995 anymore when the Grove was the "it" place. I was told by one landlord that Apple came here to look around, they didn't open a store because of the pricing on rental space. If Apple can't or won't afford it, how can the average business?
For years I've been saying we need a headhunter for business, but to be honest, if businesses are being priced out of the market, the headhunter can't do anything to help. And I don't think the new logo or slogan will either.
