Be careful with what we imply. That's right. Local developers and outside builders will start flooding Lawrence markets if we imply something is missing.
It is known as reckless laissez faire decision making.

There's no place in town that carries 10.5x17mmR cartridges.
Most everything except groceries. Amazon is the best. Desired product delivered to your door and you don't have to deal with lousy customer service.
Movies, usually AMC 28 or Town Center.
Toys, electronics, kids clothes, sporting goods, furniture pretty much everything that isn't consumable.
Real Estate that has affordable taxes.
Anything above a 500$ price point can be bought for less in Kansas city!Sorry but true......we have no real price competition in Lawrence and we have tourist pricing on everything.
How do you think local businesses make money................!
Gasoline and Diesel. I can buy in Perry and save 20 cents
Restaurants. No variety in Lawrence, & few with atmosphere. it's either, tex-med, pizza or sports bars.
We don't buy much but Lawrence lacks variety of product & pricing for household & clothing items, so we shop out of town or on-line to compare.
Lawrence is tuned for KU student shopping which limits opportunities for families.
So Lawrence gets some & out of town gets some.
