I certainly don't mean to be rude, but do you have any idea how a business operates? Our market has to fit the business plans of these organnizations, and lobby as you may, but I am doubting that Barnes & Noble (or any subsequent investors in a Grand Forks B&N)would be willing to invest in a THIRD bookstore in the mall and a second B&N in such a small city.

Barnes and Noble and BDalton are related, so you probably won't find a B&N and a BDalton in the same mall. My guess.

How about some sort of indoor amusement area? This would be a great fit for that part of the mall as it is within walking distance of the area hotels.

There could be an indoor mini golf course (no excuses that the winter weather is a hardship) or even have someone make a bigger arcade/indoor go-cart track (with ventilation) along with a pizza/snack bar area too.

Whoever chooses to go into that spot should look at what else tourists/shoppers like to do when visiting a new location.

Think of all the school age kids who stay at those area hotels when here for a sporting event.
