Default Savannah Center

Heard tonight that when The Sharon opens Savannah will not stage any more shows. Has anyone heard this.

My barber's uncle's cousin, who has a neighbor that works for Aldi, said they were sure it was going to be torn down to make room for Trader Joes. Since Trader Joes is owned by Aldi, it must be true. Of course, my friend from NY said Savannah Center was going to be the new Macy's. I just don't know who to believe.

Sorry to disappoint you but it is going to be converted into a costco. We heard this from our cat sitter who heard it from her cat.

It's fun to read people's comic answers to questions sometimes. (Love the cat's answer). For a real answer, let me offer this: The Resident Lifestyle groups who regularly perform at the Savannah for musical theater, band concerts, etc, are already booking dates well into 2016. We have also been told that we will not have the opportunity to perform in The Sharon (at least not in the foreseeable future). Therefore, yes, shows will still go on at Savannah. But the professional performances will be primarily at The Sharon. I wouldn't be surprised to see some of the "lower level" professional acts at Savannah once in a while, though.

Thank you for that answer. It does seem reasonable that the professional acts would bring in more of an audience prepared to pay and the Savannah Center be kept for "the peoples'" shows. I don't think I would pay $100 for any show apart from Rod Stewart!!

For starters, Trader Joe's is NOT owned by ALDI.

From Wikipedia:

"Trader Joe's was founded by Joe Coulombe and has been owned since 1979 by a German family trust established by Aldi Nord's owner Theo Albrecht."


More Wikipedia lies?

Did your uncle's friend's plumber's cat sitter tell you that?

I read on TOTV that Savanah Center is sinking and will be closed for shoring up and renovations. A second floor is going to be added with a Costco and Trader Joes going on the first floor. To accomidate the new companies half of the parking lot will be eliminated.
