Supermall's new name makes no sense

The Supermall project and its new name? It is the dumbest thing we have ever heard. It doesn't even make sense, not even remotely.

Why would you put Seattle's name on something that's not anywhere near Seattle?

So someone in Ohio actually got paid to come up with this, right? Are you going to change the name of the street, too?

Seriously, how does anyone think putting a different city's name on something will promote tourism in Auburn? What would they be touring? We have nothing left. No bowling alley. Now you're ripping down the drive-in.

Wake up. There's nothing here unless you count our "promenade" and arches leading people into a downtown area that's practically empty. I guess the tourists could go to the city cement park that looks more like a graveyard.

It's all very sad.

"The Outlet Collection/Seattle" is just not going to work. Maybe they should redirect that money and do something better for this city, like rebuild the drive-in so we have something super cool that others don't. There's also the Dwight Clark Skate Center we could build.

It's just so very sad to see this City ripping up stuff that we love.

Take off Seattle and put in Auburn and it makes more sense. It's pretty obvious.

Please understand I love Auburn. Maybe that's why this is so annoying to me.
