There are so many choices out there, but do you think about where your dollars go and try to support the local guys, or do you simply bargain shop? OMC wants to know!

Last week's question: Will PabstCity drastically improve Milwaukee's Downtown neighborhoods, and should the city help finance the development?

Jim Godsil, Riverwest
Historic preservation is a key element of sustainable economic development. Urban beauty brings urban "brains" for creative class development and higher value-added labor power for the world markets. Save PabstCity!

Anna Gould, Milwaukee
I think it depends on what chains go into the complex. If they attract good ones, then I'm all for it, but if they attract a bunch of crappy mall stores then forget it.

Ken Coates, Milwaukee
I love this town, but Milwaukee is on the brink of either thriving or dying and not developing PabstCity is one step closer to the grave.

Rosemary Brunetto, Whitefish Bay
PabstCity sounds like it will bring a lot of fun and commerce to the city. Bring it on!
