The Block Survey

Here are the survey results

More than 50% of the vote:
1) Apple Store (82%)
2) California Pizza Kitchen (68%)
3) H&M (67%)
4) Yard House (55%)
5) Urban Outfitters (51%)
 Higher than 60% of the votes will be in red.

 92% of Fremont residents will shop at The Block at Pacific Commons if the businesses include an Apple Store, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Tilly's, California Pizza Kitchen, and Wet Seal.

If The Block at Pacific Commons has Men's Wearhouse, ULTA Beauty, Tilly's, Styles For Less, Payless ShoeSource, The Boiling Crab, and Which Wich?? Will you shop at The Block?  
43% Only go there when I need something 
22% No- I will shop elsewhere like Westfield Valley Fair or Great Mall 
35% Yes- I will shop at The Block 

Top 5 Comments:
  • Pacific Commons is the place all students and young adults go when they're bored on a Friday night or have nothing to do. The addition of these stores, especially more sit down restaurants and clothing stores, will truly thrive in a community where high school students are constantly in need of something to do when they're bored. Pacific Commons need more stores like these! 
  • We need young and fun places to shop/eat/hangout. It would be great to have some unique restaurants (or stores) that will make people choose to come here over another mall. The HUB isn't what it used to be, so don't bring the same tired stores to the Block.  
  • Some of the store’s choices already have nearby locations, which would not be a good fit at the Block. Therefore, there needs to be ideas for names of stores and restaurants that do not have any nearby locations. 
  • Ulta Beauty and Men's Wearhouse have no value to me, and are not enough to draw me to The Block. I can't think of a place more behind the times than Men's Warehouse. So disappointed these stores are coming in. The Counter would've been a great draw, but I see it's not coming now. I thought this was going to be a more upscale and different place to shop?  
  • More juniors' fashion please.. so many high schoolers/college kids/20's people in Fremont.. Fremont should be more fun! :) Thanks
