Kathy Mahan's post did more than remind us that Bentley's Market closed (and her hair gets did in the same shopping center), it showed that the whole Riverview shopping center is in some trouble - even though it's in, maybe, the most affluent area of the Valley.
If a higher-end market can't work there, where in the Valley would it work?!
On a related note: One wonders if Fresno mega-developer DeWayne Zinkin should be celebrating that the development of his infamous 'Fresno 40' property is finally moving towards reality - being as it's down the street from the dying Riverview center.
While the slow deterioration of retail in Northeast Fresno does invoke a smirk from us, still, we know what's bad for one part of Fresno is bad for all of Fresno. Lets just hope Fresh & Easy does better in Downtown Fresno than Bentley's did in The NE.
