The Glendale Galleria has a new leader. General Growth Properties Inc. last week named Chris Bilotto as the new senior general manager at the landmark shopping center with 250 specialty stores and anchors including Nordstrom, Macy's JCPenney and Target. Bilotto previously managed General Growth's Arizona Center, a 250,000-square-foot shopping, entertainment and office complex in Phoenix. Bilotto takes over one of the largest centers in Southern California and one that some Glendale business leaders hope will get a bit of a makeover.

Ryan Carter Children weaved through a long line of parents as they awaited the chance to slide down a celery slide, play on a giant soccer ball, sleep on a big bed or go on an imaginary vacation. For parents, it was a break from shopping. For children 42 inches and shorter, it was a chance to have some fun in a mall full of businesses intended for their parents. But it had a message. The new Healthy Habits for Healthy Living Play Area, unveiled Friday on the upper level of the Galleria, near JC Penney, is an attempt by its creators to fuse a message of promoting children's health with promoting the mall and Glendale Adventist Medical Center's public outreach programs.

I want to thank Jeff Kurtti for his letter to Carol Jacobs in the May 19 News-Press. I am sure it must be the feeling of many Glendale supporters of the Americana at Brand. I would add only that our family has purchased articles at the Galleria for many years, but we have yet to read any perceptions from the 150 stores located in the Galleria. If they approve of General Growth's hostilities, they have seen my last dollar. The stores that we like in the Galleria are located in other cities.

I wonder if Annie Sanders really knows about giveaway. When Donahue Schriber was given $12.8 million -- $4.2 million for land and $8.6 million for the parking garage to build the Galleria -- and another $400,000 to rebuild Broadway and then another $8.7 million for later expansion ... would you call that a lopsided giveaway? That was 30 years ago. Today, those dollars would be [more like] $30 million to $40 million. Remember, that giveaway has netted the city $3.5 million or more in annual sales tax for 30 years.

Urging others to hit General Growth where it hurts most The campaign to develop the Glendale Town Center has been a lengthy one, and one that's been until now mostly uninvolved by residents. However, at the now infamous City Council meeting where we witnessed the abominable behavior from our elected officials, what should have been a "slam dunk" decision turned 180 degrees in the opposite direction. We all became outraged. Who could blame Caruso for being exasperated and throwing in the towel?

As it typical at this time of year, economists have been keeping a keen eye on retail sales across the nation and making forecasts about just how well they believe retailers will fare during the final weeks of 2013. Jitters abound because the calendar puts Thanksgiving on Nov. 28, allowing businesses less than a month to capture the post-turkey-day dollars, which can account for as much as 40% of their annual revenue. Reports are mixed. Morgan Stanley predicts the worst holiday season since 2008, but the International Council of Shopping Centers and the National Retail Federation both say they expect to see an increase in sales this year.
