Dulce AP: I think we need a good mall with more stores & restaurants, It’s difficult to find options here!

Ed Brimer: I don’t even go to the mall that’s already built lol

Marie Connelly: What we need is better infrastructure to welcome the tourism and reopen the Malecon.. Too many business closed down because of that dumb move

Marie Connelly: No we don’t?? We just need better stores in the mall

    Absolutely NOT!! What percentage of the local people can even afford shopping at Liver Pool mall?? Unless of course they are catering to the tourists who don’t come here to shop in a mall!! Leave the in the bigger cities and clean up the shops that already exist. Morelos looks like slum town and hurts the image of Vallarta. I say let’s stay small and leave the BIG for the big cities! Ugh!

    NO!!!! We do NOT need another mall. We need to inform owners of the downtown properties, in particular, as to how they can rent out their storefronts and how to keep their renters.

    We need to clean-up the downtown, including windows, make it colorful and seasonal.

    Support from ALL of Vallarta is needed. Do all of these things and there will be more jobs, more business, more happy people. Viva Puerto Vallarta!

    No, let’s not Americanize Vallarta. This is Mexico. Support the small, local stores in Centro and the Romantic Zone.

  4. Please NO! Go to the US if you want to go hang out in a big mall. Let’s support small, local businesses… encourage shopping in Centro, encourage local entrepreneurs… We do not need conspicuous consumption… let’s keep it simple, and keep it local!!!

    No, it will take away from all the local downtown businesses? See what happened in US when big malls went in. No no please no more
