Well, obviously it comes down to making money, but no doubt, companies don't want to put stores in areas where there's a risk of crime because it just cuts into their profits.
I never thought about any supermarket shortage in bad areas in cities in the States until I looked on it a little more just now, but apparently it's a real problem.
Anyway, about the arena: Agreed that Kimota's post is a total joke, especially since there's a lot of empty land west of the Fox that could be turned into something good.
