I find it interesting that no one has mentioned Cowboy Town lately, now that it has changed ownership. The two new owners are community businessmen with well established storefronts in Central Louisiana.They are both aggressive in advertising their endeavors and promoting them. They are having an open house this weekend to show the place off. What are their plans? There are a multitude of possibility with the area. Close to town and just off the interstate. Plus interstate visibility. They have invited realtors as well as interested business people to view the area.
Why…. from its beginning has it been jinxed? The possibility for the facility seems vast. Entertainment.Resturants…Shopping…all in one place. I truly believe the community should get behind the endeavor. I have been told that both men have extended themselves to the max on this project.
Instead of saying nay..for once let’s get behind something that could help tourism and employment in this area…
As a businessman and former events promoter, I can see unlimited possibilities with the support of our community.
Notice: (I said support from our community.)
Will that happen or will it be the same old ……same old?
Wishing for the best! (expecting the worst.)
An add on note:
The TT said a number of people recommended the property as an Outlet Mall.
Just a reminder to those of you who do not venture out-of-state. Outlet Malls are like Shopping Malls.. Pretty much in today’s world and economy a dead strip of land. It would take a multi- use approach to succeed..(Many different venues.)
A high visibility RV Park…
A major brand truck stop.
In conjunction with existing facility.
Something that could visibly pull traffic off the interstate.
Lamar and Wesawthat..Good reporting.
Briarpatch…Get back into the flow. (There is plenty to write about, I will be glad to give you a few ideas.) That is a good natured rib not a jab.
