James:

The logistics will be a nightmare.  We do a market that has moved three
times in three years,  all in the same general area but for a while we did
Wednesdays  4 blocks south of Saturdays.

Last year the city finally decided to put us back in the center of town,
both days.  It really improved and we can park and unload right there.

If you move into the mall, customers will not know where to go...most don't
read ads...you'll lose sales...and not benefit the mall which is what the
mall manager is looking for.

If at all possible, stand your ground or find a more receptive manager next
door.
