A report released Tuesday shows that retail sales in downtown Salt Lake City were up 36 percent last year, largely driven by business at City Creek Center. But some businesses at The Gateway Shopping Center say they are not seeing the same trend.
As City Creek Center celebrates its one year anniversary, the nearby Gateway Mall is standing its ground and making new investments.
The Gateway has lost about a dozen stores to City Creek Center. But The Gateway’s General Manager Scott Bennett says the outdoor center for shopping, dining, and entertainment is doing just fine.
