"Community patrons will have the opportunity to give feedback before the business- es and new entrepreneurs lock in final menus and offerings," said Moore. "We want to encourage a culture of feedback, participation, and responsiveness to the community." The mall, located in the former Grant space in this one-way section of Main Street, opened with various festivities and a crowd of new patrons, giving it the most life it's seen in several years. Representatives from the Flying Shuttles Studio, a holdover tenant at the front of the building, said they were excited to see Moore's vision come to life and happy to see the return of tenants designed to attract shoppers and leisure seekers. Moore told The Breeze she was excited to get up and running leading up to a planned July grand opening. Among the tenants here are clothing stores, restaurants and salons.
