This is great news. Shopping in Solon is like war-torn Beirut, except Beirut has nicer buildings! Seriously why are the shopping centers so dillapidated in this #1 suburb? All the other communities and even many Cleveland neighborhoods have better looking shopping centers than Solon. Shame on the city leaders who have let this aspect of Solon go so far downhill. The current Marcs looks like it belongs in East Cleveland though I'm sure even that area has a nicer one!
