Grinch Shows up at Park Road Shopping Center

Grinch 1

When Columbia based Edens bought the venerable Park Road Shopping Center for $82 million back in 2011 most people in the know knew changes would be coming soon.   Sure Edens said all the right things about “maintaining the character” of the Center that originally opened in 1956 but you just knew they would have to reshuffle the tenant mix.  The Park Road Dry Cleaner in the back of the center is the latest tenant to feel the Edens ax.  Even though they have been at Park Road for over 29 years they were told to vacate by the end of January.  There is a petition you can sign at the front desk to try to save them.  Probably not going to help but what else can you do?   Below is the note at the Dry Cleaners comparing Edens to the Grinch.  Pretty funny!

You can find me working the PR angle for restaurants around town and keeping the RT readers informed about the latest happenings.


  1. The ultimate sell out! Park Road Shopping Center will have the Baby Gap and J Crew in there by next year. Sad to see all the local guys getting their walking papers.

      Laughed out loud at that one! I fear you might be right.
