It always bugs me how so many Jackson stores have street frontage but don't present anything to the street. I guess the problem is that it means designing a store with no back room - the Grand & Toy's street entrance is super-awkward (do they even have one anymore), so I can kinda see why so many don't bother with it.

It just sucks waiting for the buses there and seeing nothing but a wall of shiny black windows. I wonder how much of this has to do with the commerceless commerce-place and the other big office-buildings leaving the block of King from James to Bay as kind of a street-retail dead-zone.

I'm just always surprised with the giant mob of student commuters waiting there that we don't see so much as a hot-dog stand.
