And another one leaves........

That Yazoo Clay must be some kind of mean.  Yet another bidness is leaving Maywood Mart.


CPR posted this message on Facebook:


Pine Cone, Ace Hardware, Greek gyro place (don't remember the name), possibly Pizza Hut.  The list keeps getting longer.

I think the Greek gyro place left due to being a Jew hating bastard more than the food or lack of business. Very good food! Very odd man.

@ 10:11..agree!

The Greek place was called Wraps. And I agree with 10:11, that guy was crazy. Apparently he decided to complain about Jews to a random customer turned out to be a rabbi. That pretty much ruined his business from what I understand. It's a shame, too. His gyros were better than Keifer's.

But Petco! Go GTFO little businesses that helped us through more difficult times...we've got a big box client coming in!

They'd dump McDade's, Beemon's, Nandy's or Brock's if anything more appealing showed a whiff of interest.

Oh, and how about fixing those right-twice-a-day clocks on the tower that haven't worked since about a week after they were installed?

Don't know what y'all are complaining about, they still have the Hat Shop! That's where Lorita gets her from!

Regular Maywood Shopper said...

Higher rent (since Whole Foods moved in across the street) is what killed Miller Ace. Likely the same story for CPR, plus that west side of Maywood in general has a different mix of shoppers due to the other stores there. Wouldn't be surprised if the same rent issue was what drove Yanny (Wraps) out, though he'd be talking about wanting to go elsewhere (Mobile, the Coast, etc.) for a long time.

no need to worry a good place for a new strip club,or adult video store,

Is the Yazoo Sub-Strata that much different just a couple of blocks down da road?

Judging from the posters that frequent this blog, don't we all have a right to hate whomever we want to hate without being a bastard? And there is no universal law requiring excellent customer service.

"And there is no universal law requiring excellent customer service."

indeed, Popeyes has thrived on having openly hostile and incompetent servers. I think it adds to the spice that makes me keep coming back.

I can see the billboards on 55N @ terry now( May woody mart gentlemen's club)

Rumor has it Beemon's is shuttering or moving. Say it ain't so!

Lester's Buddy said...

Indeed, say it ain't so re Beemon! We've been trading there for nearly 25 years. They just invested in a pretty major (for them) renovation/update of the pharmacy area, technology, etc. I would think the only thing that would run Lester off would be sky high rent increases.

Clarkes cleaners ??
Not sure why they left Maywood - they bounced around Maywood a couple times moving to different locations there.
Clarkes may be gone all together ....

That whole shopping center is bad. I don't feel safe going over there... especially to the side that faces I55... Why ANY business would want to open a store in that area is beyond me.

@1:01pm, 10:11am here. Absolutely! Wraps dude can be as much an ass as he likes and hate on whatever group he wants. However, you do so at your on peril when you run a business that interacts with various walks of life each day. I was just pointing out that he was publicly exposed and likely suffered for it.

Just like a baker shouldn't have to bake a cake for a gay wedding. Do what you please with your business... but be prepared if bad business decisions or moral judgement shuts you down. One thing is for sure, the person he offended didn't cry to the courts for justice, they just let the bad press and exposure do it for them.

What is going in Julep space?

I've been shopping Maywood Mart since before there was a "part facing I55N. Indeed, before I55N existed. Cannot express how much I miss the hardware store and the possibility of losing Beemon's is daunting. The chain drug stores are so inconsistent and cannot control what they have to dispense. They just have to take whatever their warehouse is stocking in the way of generics. Someone could buy the old Steak House and make it a fine apothecary. I appreciate CPR telling us where he is going. The out of town buyers just don't understand Jackson and what we are willing to pay. I've only been to Sam's once and that was because I had to.

The answer to you question is YES. Yazoo clay can be near the surface in one location and 40 feet deep only a few yards away. That's why when soil testing is done multiple bores are made throughout the site. None the less it is one bad mamajama.

The shopping center with Picadilly is going to shit. They have that bar behind them and the patrons leave a mess every night. Why do you think the party planning biz left on Old Square Road?

Feel better 8:56? Getting that negative shit off your chest making you feel all grown up??

8:56. That area has so declined that the Distict at Eastover is just a mirage in your blind, redneck eyes. Right? Right???

CPA said...

Zoning for gentlemen's clubs is restricted to the current areas they are in. Too bad. Would like to shop at McDade's and then hit a gentlemen's club thereafter without moving my car.

Yani Allis at Wraps was not and is not a Jew hater. He had a salad named Jew salad if I recall. It was a small salad and I had it many time. All of his food was very good. The last that I heard was that he was looking for a new location. Whoever the victim of the alleged hate speech appears to have been someone who was overly sensitive and rather than asking Yani what he meant, he had to make a big issue, much like the BLM folks and other 'victim' groups causing a more fractured USA. If you live long enough you will sometimes have your feelings hurt but I have always found it to be better for me to go ahead with my life and not worry about someone who thinks that I should live differently.

Gee, thanks for the comment, Yani.
Your "small" salad was called a "Jew Salad" because it was small. The Rabbi that you insulted just didn't like your obvious anti-semitism. You go right ahead and live your life, just keep your Jew-hating ass our of Jackson.

Isn't it near Whole Foods? There's your guaranteed traffic flow right there. Plus the Indian motel under the under-pass.

A new restaurant is coming to the Ace Hardware site.
I go to Maywood Mart all the time as it's near my home.
The businesses that closed some time ago didn't have enough customers and that had nothing to do with location. The Greek restaurant was in decline before the controversial remarks for other reasons. I had stopped going long before .If you don't provide good service , a clean, pleasant space , a consistently good product, and you don't keep up with the changes in the market, you lose customers and go into decline. It's that simple.
The only time I've ever been uneasy at Maywood Mart was when there was a Neo-Nazi openly carrying and just standing in the middle of the Starbucks. Fortunately, he has not returned. I expect he was disappointed that he wouldn't find an excuse to shoot.
Because I frequent the stores in Maywood Mart, I've had an opportunity to learn that even the customers who don't look like me, are like me. They work hard, love their children ,have nice manners and aren't afraid of their own shadows! I know professors, doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, musicians, artists and business owners who don't look like me. They have enriched my life. They have become friends and supported me in illness and sadness just like my friends who look like me.
If some of you would bother to get to know people who don't look like you, you might find your life will be enriched as well. Good and decent people come in all sizes, shapes and colors. If you are prejudiced, then you limit your world.

I like Maywood Mart because of its convenience. I go to the new, fabulous Watercolors (formerly Brocks) and Starbucks. However, the parking lot is similar to a bumper cars game. I got hit last month by a nice lady in her huge Infinity SUV backing out of a parking space without looking. However, everything ended well with the repair.

While all of you elderly citizens keep preaching about maywood mart, the younger people are doing everything they can to never set foot in Jackson, and Mississippi as well. Take a look at the majority clientele in maywood mart. Elderly white people. In ten years, that area will be just like the rest of Jackson. Maybe sooner.

To 4:28 about the list of local places that have left Highland Village since the new owners from Boston have taken over:

Polka Dot Pony
The Early Settler
Crazy Cat Bakers
Inside Out
Olde Tyme Commisary
Mozingo's
Earth Walk
SAS Shoes
Juniker Jewelers
Ginger Snaps
Albrittons (not yet, but have announced plans to leave)

There may be more that I can't think of, I left Julep off the list since their closing wasn't 100% the fault of WS Development.

The new owners are only interested in forcing locals out, and bringing national chains in....with very few exceptions...(word is that Masion Weiss were the only ones to get a good deal, maybe someone told WS Development if they left there would be riots.)

Also, from an employee at one of the new chains that have been brought in, business isn't good....somedays they are lucky to make one sale.

I really miss those big, soft, comfy, plastic chairs at Red Arrow Car Wash where you could see all the fat women with chihuahuas perched up on their breasties and smell the cardboard pine trees over on the display rack. Some things cannot be replaced.

Class, service and style are disappearing right here before our very eyes.

8:00, so just because someone has a desire to protect themselves while in the ghetto, they are a neo nazi? It's prejudice people like you that are the reason Mississippi is frowned upon. Please stay in your ghetto, and keep your prejudice views out of my quite neighborhood to the north.

I think Annelle Primos got a pretty good lease deal as well at Highland Village.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
